Vetrotech provided its powerful Pyroswiss® Smoke Barrier System (SBS) at Beaugrenelle shopping centre, Paris. Covering an area of 60,000m², Beaugrenelle is more than just another large, modern shopping centre, housing department stores, boutiques, cinemas and restaurants.
With such a high volume of pedestrian traffic, safe evacuation should a fire break out is a key consideration when designing shopping centres. A major part of fire control is down to panic control. It is vital to have an effective smoke barrier in place so that people can be evacuated swiftly and calmly, with minimum fuss. The powerful Pyroswiss® Smoke Barrier System is a highly adaptable smoke-channelling and smoke-containment system.
Pyroswiss® SBS is a clear, frameless, fire-resistant glazing solution that guarantees comprehensive smoke protection for up to 120 minutes – providing a safe escape route wherever fire strikes. Ensuring a safe exit for shoppers, it keeps escape and access routes free from smoke and hot, toxic gases; prevents fire from spreading; facilitates firefighting operations; and reduces the thermal effects on structural components.
Beaugrenelle is leading the way in consumer experience in Paris. For years to come, it will stand as an eco-friendly monument that effectively and beautifully unites the commercial and residential districts on the Left Bank.
