For example it is possible to create smoke reservoirs from which smoke and hot gases can be extracted, or alternatively to prevent the spread of smoke to allow time for escape. London Rapid Ascent Fire Curtains can provide a seamless boundary between work areas that when necessary can function and help save lives. They are an essential safety component that allows you to stop the spread of lethal gases that are present in almost every fire in London.
