CASE 2: Vertical Coiling with Complying Swing Egress Door(s)

Smoke Compartmentation

Smoke barriers divide areas of a building into separate smoke compartments. These dividing walls allow time for building occupants to be evacuated or relocated to other smoke compartments. In other words, smoke barriers separate portions of buildings into areas of refuge capable of resisting the passage of smoke and fire for up to 1 hour. (Section 709)

Regardless of the size of the space, smoke barriers must be maintained throughout the building. McKEON can easily protect these unusually large openings without compromising building ambiance.
