Fire Safety in Prisons and Detention Centers

Jails, Prisons and detention centers provide a unique dilemma when it comes to fire and smoke safety.

Jails, prisons, and detention centers are already partially compartmentalized, and the safety and security of both residents and employees must be considered. Evacuation procedures are likely already in place, which need to be complemented by smoke and fire containment technology.

Fortunately, smoke-rated opening protectives can be effortlessly incorporated into evacuation procedures using automatic or manual deployment to enable facility personnel to carry out necessary steps in the event of an emergency. Since these buildings often have large open spaces, smoke and fire can spread rapidly. Effective curtain deployment can help prevent the spread of smoke and fire and provide more time for a safe evacuation.
