CASE 3: Side Acting Accordion with Power-assisted Egress

Elevator Separation

Hoistway protection is designed to isolate fire, smoke, heat and toxic gases or fumes from migrating floor to floor through vertical hoistways in multi-story structures. There are two fundamental methods prescribed in this code section, elevator lobbies or protection at the point of access to the elevator car.

The side acting accordion technology will accommodate custom radius applications as well as serve as the primary means of egress from the space.
