Elevator Protection

Elevator shafts are the largest vertical penetration in a building. Smoke Guard  makes flexible containment solutions for building code smoke protection requirements at the elevator opening and surrounding areas. Invented by an architect to specifically prevent smoke migration via the elevator hoistway door, Smoke Guard’s smoke and fire curtains are an ICC approved alternative to a enclosed elevator smoke lobby or shaft pressurization.

Draft Curtains

SG Draft

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 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.

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.Get in touch for more information about how the Smoke Guard Draft can be used in your next project.
