By using smoke curtains and smoke ventilators and fresh air intake it is possible to ensure that the unaffected floors are protected.
In graphic 2 the result of installing an automatic smoke control system can be seen.
The smoke detection system would activate and the smoke curtains would be activated on all floors other than the floor on which the fire has been detected. In turn the smoke extraction system would operate leaving the remainder of the building free from smoke thus allowing safe egress for the occupants.
