Smoke-rated opening protectives from Smoke Guard California provide solutions for buildings with insufficient space for an enclosed elevator lobby. Because an elevator shaft can serve as a chimney in the event of an emergency, it is crucial to provide a barrier between the elevator and the rest of the floors.
When it comes to life safety products, Smoke Guard California is the leading provider of smoke and fire rated curtains, custom SGCA doors and many other partner products.
For most buildings, fire doors are typically located around stairwells and elevator shafts as to limit the ability for smoke to leak from floor to floor. However, fire and smoke containment systems can be a little more complex for buildings in the healthcare industry such as hospitals.
