Smokeshield® Elevator Smoke Containment SystemElevator Smoke Door
Model Number: ERF10
Gain more design freedom in your multi-story commercial project with the Cookson SmokeShield fire safety system. The SmokeShield Elevator® is an advanced elevator smoke containment system that installs discreetly into elevator openings, blending in with surrounding architecture until called into use. In the event of a fire, the curtain automatically closes to seal the hoistway from smoke infiltration, ensuring that occupants have adequate time to evacuate safely and also limits further property damage.
Industry Compliant Smoke Curtains for Elevator Hoistways
In a fire, elevator shafts become dangerous chimneys that funnel poisonous fumes through the building and channel oxygen to the flames. Sealing these shafts is critical for protecting the building and the people inside from the deadly effects of vertical smoke and hot gas migration. The International Building Council (IBC) 2003 - 2018 code demands that buildings with elevators install an effective system for sealing the hoistway, and the SmokeShield Elevator meets all of these requirements.
This product is compliant with all IBC 2003 - 2018 standards, in many cases eliminating the need to include an elevator lobby in your design. It also complies with the strict requirements for hoistway closures as an approved ICC-ES-AC77 elevator smoke containment system.
Additional listings and certifications for the SmokeShield Elevator include UL 1784, ASTME 864 and the ICC-ES Evaluation Services Report ESR-4175. Cookson is also an approved smoke curtain manufacturer per the California OSHPD standard under certification number OPM-0523-19 and is listed with the California State Fire Marshal.
A Complete Seal When You Need It Most
The Cookson SmokeShield Elevator is an advanced failsafe technology that stops hoistway smoke migration in its tracks and positively reseals the curtain after each cycle. The transparent barrier features colorful and intuitive graphics that direct evacuees to use the stairs and provides occupants, first responders, and rescue personnel with clear instructions for operation.
To open the SmokeShield Elevator, one simply pushes the button located at the curtain center. The curtain will rise and stay up for approximately 10 seconds before automatically reclosing. A failsafe, monitored battery backup system assures curtain cycling capability in the event of a power failure. The SmokeShield Elevator Smoke Curtain can be wired directly to a backup system if desired. As a final life safety redundancy, occupants or responders can use an ADA compliant manual lift feature for access to and from the elevator car.
Versatile Smoke Curtains for Elevators Built to Your Dimensions
This elevator smoke containment system is manufactured to your custom specifications and accommodates openings up to 12 feet high by 12 feet wide. The curtain and the operating system, including the controls, junction box, and reserve battery system, all fit into the head box and require only 7.25 inches of headroom for installation.
Depending on your building design and preference, you can integrate the SmokeShield Elevator smoke curtain into the surrounding wood, drywall, or masonry fascia for maximum concealment. In addition to a wide choice of powder coat finishes, you may select exposed guide hardware in a durable anodized finish that matches #4 brushed stainless steel for added aesthetic appeal.
