While testing and servicing your smoke curtains on a routine basis is a great first step, you should also ensure they are cleaned routinely as well. Let’s look at a few ways to approach cleaning smoke curtains and how to incorporate cleaning them into your regular maintenance routine.
When designing with fire safety in mind, it's important to remember that where there's fire, there's smoke. And smoke can do as much, if not more, damage to your building than fire alone. Smoke curtains can help prevent or lower the amount of damage incurred during and after a fire.
During a fire emergency, the most important task for firefighters is to save lives. To do so in an efficient manner, firefighters need smoke to be as quarantined as possible. In the case of multi-story buildings, such as office buildings or residential buildings stairwells and elevator shafts can serve as a chimney for smoke.
