Coopers installed multiple fire curtains with smoke control over the lifts in the 185,000 sq ft office space in the heart of Reading, UK. Fire curtains with smoke control over a lift opening offer fire integrity and prevent smoke from spreading through the building via the lift shaft in the event of a fire on any of the building’s floors.
An important part of the design of the building on the ground and first floor was to subtly integrate the fire curtain headbox and side guides into the lift opening. Bronze and stainless steel trim is a major feature in the lift lobby on the ground and first floors and Coopers were able to install matching stainless steel bottom tray and side guide trims to ensure the fire curtain is virtually invisible until deployed.
