CASE 2: Side Acting Accordion with Manual Egress
Elevator car doors are typically fire-rated but cannot comply with smoke and draft requirements. Smoke & draft rated assemblies eliminate the passage of smoke and are usually located at the point of access to an elevator car as an alternative to the elevator lobby.
This simple, manually operated, bolt-up pre-fabricated unit can be installed at the point of access to any elevator car in a matter of hours. No pocket, stud or drywall construction is necessary. The door, held open by an electromagnet, is released at the command of a smoke detector and the fire and smoke rated assembly closes. Building occupants or first responders can pass through the opening as the door self-closes behind them.
