The award winning SmokeShield Elevator Closure is a smoke curtain that is design forward, compact and will positively re-seal an elevator shaft after each cycle. It was selected as a Top Product of 2019 by Architectural Record magazine in the Building Systems & Components category.
In the event of a fire, the SmokeShield Elevator curtain acts as a barrier to prevent smoke and hot gases from entering the hoistway. Without this curtain, the elevator shaft acts as a chimney, allowing smoke and hot gases to travel to upper floors that the elevator connects. The SmokeShield Elevator prevents this from happening because of the patented GuideLock™ technology which ensures that the curtain mechanically seals the opening with every cycle – ensuring that the smoke is contained to the impacted floor.
This innovative smoke solution often allows designers to eliminate the IBC Elevator lobby requirement, providing more space for design freedom. Designers appreciate that the guides can easily be concealed under fascia, allowing it to blend into the surrounding walls. Any exposed guides or bottom bars can be finished to match, compliment, or contrast any design.
This curtain complies with IBC 2003 – 2018 and is listed in ICC-ES AC-77, ICC-ES ESR-4175, OSHPD # OPM-0523-19 and California State Fire Marshal approvals. It is also listed in UL 1784, UL325, and ASTME 864.
The SmokeShield Elevator has a UL listing for hoistway openings up to 12’ wide and 12’ high. The headbox of the closure fits into less than 10” of headroom – smaller than any other smoke closure solution available today.
Standard Materials & Finishes
The SmokeShield Elevator comes with galvanized steel guides, bottom bars, brackets, and hood in RAL 9010 white powder coat as standard.
The SmokeShield Elevator deploys when notified by the fire alarm control panel or local smoke detectors and is reopened by pushing the curtain-mounted switch. Primary power is backed up by a 24 hour battery backup operational system. In the event of complete power loss, the curtain may be lifted by using the ADA compliant emergency lift strap located at the bottom of the curtain.
