Fire partitions serve to compartmentalize smoke and fire, preventing them from spreading throughout a structure. They are lightweight and typically do not require structural reinforcement during installation, which means they rarely affect the design of a building or atrium.
As a passive smoke management system, fire partitions consume less energy than a full-fledged smoke exhaust system. However, if a more active smoke management system is necessary, fire partitions can be used to subdivide space served by a mechanical smoke exhaust system. When incorporated into a well-designed smoke control system, smoke partitions can work in tandem with other safety features of the building.
