Live Installation of Active Smoke Barriers in Al Yasmeen Mall Project

The majority of fire deaths are not caused by flame burns, but by smoke and inhalation of toxic gases. As fire escalates quickly, fire smoke can problems, fainting and breathing problems. It could prevent people from reaching accessible exit points. Therefore, installing smoke and fire-rated curtains is an imperative element when designing or remodeling a building.

SMC interiors active smoke barriers comprise technologically advanced fire-resistant fabric barriers encased in a compact steel housing. The barriers remain invisibly retracted until activated by an alarm or detector signal, at which time they descend safely to their fire operational position to prevent the movement of smoke & heat from one area to another in a fire.

We have developed a wide range of BS EN certified smoke curtains to work with every building in every possible application. Furthermore, to be compliant, Smoke Barriers must be protected from a short circuit and or total power failure, this is achieved with our Total Gravity Fail-Safe (TGFS) system.
