Innovative Fire and Smoke Solutions
Open plan designs promote connectivity, community, and an abundance of daylight. However, these design objectives often clash head-on with building codes that rely on fire and smoke compartmentalization to ensure life-safety standards for building occupants and first responders. Insert Powers… with an innovative platform of fire and smoke-rated door and curtain systems that afford you the flexibility to achieve the design you want while meeting the requisite code standards.

Coiling / Sliding Fire Doors
From conventional coiling fire shutters and doors to advanced, wide-span opening protectives featuring integral egress, Powers offers unrivaled versatility to help solve your building code challenges.
Lean on our experts early in the design process to determine the right system for your application. Structural support and egress requirements, span criteria, budget, adjacent design constraints, and fire/smoke ratings are but a few of the critical criteria we will evaluate as we consider the right solution for your project.
Fire + Smoke Curtains
Fire and smoke-rated fabric curtains are rapidly growing in popularity due to their lightweight construction and sleek design requiring very little storage space.
Offering incredible span capabilities, integral egress options, and up to 2-hour fire ratings, these systems provide a flexible solution for a diverse range of applications and projects including atriums.
Draft Curtains are a cost-effective, static curtain strategy for warehouses, aircraft hangers, and manufacturing environments.
Used in both sprinklered and non-sprinklered buildings for automatic smoke removal. Draft curtains channel the ceiling jet away from the fire and out of the building via roof vents either to automatically remove the smoke or to delay sprinkler activation.
Elevator Smoke Containment
Elevator lobby requirements in high-rise and I-2 occupancies and corridor continuity requirements in R-occupancies create unique design challenges.
Fortunately, Powers brings a range of code-compliant alternatives to the equation, led by the revolutionary SMOKE GUARD magnetic coiling curtain in addition to accordion fire door systems from McKEON, both of which allow you to eliminate the cost and clutter caused by enclosed lobbies.
