Video – Best Alternative for Atrium Smoke Control Using Smoke Guard’s M4000 Perimeter Curtain

Check out the Smoke Guard M4000 at the Spanx Corporate Building. This video shows how Smoke Guard provides excellent atrium smoke control. The accordion-style M4000 curtain hides beautifully in the ceiling until needed, dropping down safely to make a seal around the stairwell atrium opening.

More About the M4000

Smoke Guard’s Model 4000 fire curtain is the ideal solution for vertically deploying perimeter curtain installations, and does not require corner support posts. This type of fire curtain can shield staircases and escalators from smoke and flames, or provide a reservoir for smoke on the upper floors of an atrium or other open space. While the M4000 does not provide a flap for egress like the Model 2500 vertical curtains, it can be an effective complement to existing mechanical smoke and fire containment systems or additional fire curtains. This is a powerful tool for architects designing new buildings, and the no post design makes it easy to incorporate the M4000 into older buildings that must be updated to comply with modern fire safety codes. – via
