Protect in Place Applications
Prison & Detention Centers
Prisons and detention facilities are a particularly daunting design challenge in terms of smoke and fire control. The requirement to maintain control of residents throughout an incident require the use of a technology solution that is consistent with evacuation plans and procedures. BLE smoke and fire curtain technology allows such solutions.
Smoke and fire curtains can deploy automatically, triggered by either fire alarm and/or security alarm systems. Just as importantly these systems can be retracted either automatically in a pre-programmed manner to comply with evacuation or security procedures, or manually to allow supervisory personnel to adapt to dynamic circumstances.
Smoke and fire curtains are also well suited to the variety of scenarios found in these facilities. In many instances barriers comprised of bars or chain link allow the free passage of smoke and fire. Large open areas can be protected by curtains that deploy from the ceiling, and long spans can also be protected by a singe curtain deployment.
Whether a new facility, or the retrofit of an existing facility, smoke and fire curtains provide a capacity to protect residents in-place, when evacuation procedures are conducted, and enable facility supervisory personnel to adapt the protection strategies to a variety of scenarios.
