Smoke and fire curtains were pleased to be awarded the contract to design, install and commission the active fire protection for the building perimeter.

The Innovative stacked design was to be completely encased within the steel framing to ensure complete compartmentation.

To mitigate the risk of external fire spread it was proposed that fire separation fire curtains were to be provided at the facade line and ensure compliance to the testing parameters of EN1634-1: 2014 and its associated classifications under EN13501-2.

Smoke & Fire worked with their local partners and the main contractor to ensure this compliance and to satisfy the criteria within Arup’s detailed fire strategy.
