Below are some photographs taken during two different Smoke Guard Draft (SG Draft) installations. The first installation took place at Seagate, a manufacturing facility in Northern California. The second installation featured here took place at the Fairchild Air Force Base in Spokane, WA. The Fairchild AFB is a hangar that was built in 1941 and has been under renovation.
What is the Smoke Guard Draft?
The SG Draft is a cost-effective, static curtain strategy for warehouses, aircraft hangers, and manufacturing environments, used in both sprinklered and non-sprinklered buildings for automatic smoke removal. Draft curtains channel the ceiling jet away from the fire and out of the building via roof vents either to automatically remove the smoke or to delay sprinkler activation.
SG Draft panels are manufactured in custom widths for ceiling spans of an unlimited width with a variable drop length to suit most ceiling heights. Consult smokeguard.com or your local distributor for detailed information on this product.
SG Draft is a code-compliant, lightweight, fixed fabric curtain, semi-permanent or temporary, fire barrier system for large vertical openings. The SG Draft curtain material is a glass filament fabric with a glass fiber material on one side.
