If a fire breaks out, smoke containment systems prevent the movement of smoke and heat from one area to another.
If the smoke is allowed to spread, damage can occur to parts of the building remote from the fire. If the smoke spreads too far and cools it will drop and then there is the risk of the building becoming smoke logged. On the other hand, if the smoke is contained, then the smoke layer remains relatively hot and buoyant, giving rise to more efficient ventilation.

This white paper examines what a smoke curtain is and what a fire curtain is, explaining how they are designed, the standards and test regimes that apply to each, and how they are each expected to be applied.
