The Purpose of Smoke Control in Atrium Spaces

When dealing with a large building, atrium spaces present challenges when it comes to building codes.

Because of the wide open nature of an atrium, controlling smoke and fire presents a real dilemma. However, in order to allow time for occupants to evacuate safely in the event of an emergency, a smoke management system must be implemented.

When it comes to designing a smoke control system, size matters. The size of the atrium, that is. Depending on the height and capacity of a building’s atrium, there are variety of options a contractor or architect can choose.
