Smoke doors are required in construction under many different building codes in order to provide a safe working environment. Passive fire protection experts will be able to determine whether smoke doors are necessary, and then be able to install them safely.
Smoke doors are used to prevent smoke from spreading throughout a building and into designated escape routes. By doing this, occupants can escape through a clear, non-toxic route to exit. Certified smoke doors will always be clearly labelled as to their purpose and will be fitted with self-closing capabilities.
Here at Surefire Passive, our passive fire protection engineers will be able to use their knowledge as to whether smoke doors would be needed for a building or not. We aim to use the latest technology available and as such many modern smoke doors can be synced with smoke detectors. Therefore, once the smoke detector goes off, the smoke doors will be activated.
Our team will ensure that your smoke doors are continually maintained to industry standards, providing peace of mind that they will work during an emergency. This work will help form part of the overall management of a building.
If you are unsure if your building requires smoke doors or not, it is recommended to contact an expert. Get in touch now to find out how we can help.
