Hospitals and Health Care Facilities

The smoke produced during a fire is highly toxic and spreads rapidly, incapacitating personnel and patients in as little as one breath. The SmokeStopper blocks the smoke and confines the fire, which increases the time available for evacuation, limits fire spread and improves conditions in nearby areas.

 

By confining the smoke and contaminants to the area of origin, the SmokeStopper minimizes damages to areas outside the fire compartment that allows daily activities and operations to resume quickly.

Why SmokeStoppers?

INCREASE TIME FOR EVACUATION

The SmokeStopper is a heat resistant fabric that can be quickly deployed in a doorway or corridor to improve shelter-in-place operations and increase the time available for evacuation. This allows minimal staffing levels to still function effectively during a fire incident. .

LIMIT OXYGEN TO THE FIRE

Fire needs oxygen to produce heat and smoke. The SmokeStopper can slow down or even stop the fire by limiting oxygen flowing to the fire.

PROTECT ESCAPE ROUTES

SmokeStoppers reduce or eliminate the flow of smoke and contaminants into hallways and corridors easing the safe evacuation of patients and staff.

REDUCE TIME AND COSTS GETTING BACK INTO SERVICE

Smoke damage from fires can be very hard to clean, sometimes even impossible and irreplaceable items may be beyond repair. Even the most minor of fires can produce enough smoke to cause the shut-down of operations for extended periods of time.

 

The SmokeStopper can protect vital spaces from smoke contamination and minimize overall damages.

EASY AND QUICK DEPLOYMENT

The SmokeStopper is easily deployed by one person and does not require extensive training for staff use.
