Fixed Smoke Barrier
Fixed smoke barrier is designed to compartmentalise smoke that rises to the ceiling in the event of a fire. This slows down the spread of smoke to other zones, preventing damage and allowing more time for people to evacuate.
False ceiling is often designed in most building to cover up the messy wires, cables and pipping structure around ceiling wall. Fixed smoke barrier prevent smoke spreading into the perforated false ceiling so that smoke and heat will not further transfer to another unaffected area.
This will also reduce the fire damages towards the building, tenants of the building and can create a clear path for fire fighters to put out the fire in a quicker manner.
These static smoke barriers are installed in larger open spaces such as warehouses, factories, large retail stores etc.
