Save Big with an Alternative to Elevator Pressurization

Elevator shaft pressurization is often suggested as an alternative to enclosed elevator lobbies. After all, traditional fire curtains and doors have a stigma of being ugly, cumbersome and intrusive on design aesthetics. However, with today’s materials that is simply not true.

Elevator or stairwell pressurization may sound like a good idea, but when it comes to execution it becomes quite tricky. Elevator pressurization is a complex and expensive smoke management system that involves intricate programming and engineering. Furthermore, it frequently doesn't work well given such a wide range of temperature differentials.
