Fire and Smoke Containment

iDAStech® fire and smoke containment systems prevent the movement of fire and smoke from one area to another. These take the form of physical barriers either as doors or curtains.

Smoke Barriers

The function of the smoke barrier is to control the movement of hot smoke and toxic gases within a building by forming a barrier. The functions of active smoke barriers are identical to those of static smoke barriers, except that the active smoke barriers have the ability to be retracted and concealed when not in use.

Typical Functions of Smoke Barriers

1. To create a smoke reservoir by containing and limiting the travel of smoke
2. To channel smoke in controlled manner
3. To prevent smoke entry to another area or void

Types of Smoke Barriers

● Static smoke barriers (SSB)
● Active smoke barriers (ASB)

A wide range of different materials may be used to create smoke barriers. Typical materials used for smoke barriers include:

| fabric | metal | glass | fire-resisting board | fibreglass | mineral wool

Applications of Smoke Barriers

A. Smoke reservoir boundaries
B. Channelling screens
C. Void edge screens

As their application becomes more widespread, it is inevitable they will be put to wider variety of uses. Within the scope of its standard, smoke barriers can contain smoke and gases up to 600° C but are not intended to perform the same function as fire barriers, unless they meet additional temperature requirements.

ASB smoke curtain is an electrically operated automatic smoke curtain used to form a continuous barrier against smoke in the event of a fire.

ASB Fire Curtain is an electrically operated automatic fire curtain used to seal off an area to contain the fire and smoke, prevent it from spreading to other areas.

Fixed smoke barrier is a static smoke barrier act as a barrier against smoke movement in the event of a fire.
