WHAT IS NFPA92B?
NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) is the applicable code for smoke evacuation for a multi-level atrium. Any atrium over 2 floors requires a smoke extraction system. The smoke curtain is an integral component of such a system that allows for the reduction of make-up air, allowing for less bulky air extractors on the roof, and less cost. The use of smoke curtains actually reduces the overall cost of a smoke extraction system. Further, bulky extractors are too large for back-up generators. Therefore, the use of smoke curtains along with reverse operation of the roof top units under generator power is the preferred implementation for multi-level atria.
