Silverburn shopping centre on the outskirts of Glasgow is a recently opened state of the art shopping mall. As part of the fire and smoke strategy, smoke control systems were required.
The challenge was to install a system which would be non-intrusive to the aesthetics of the centre. Martec Engineering turned to Pyroguard's Smokeguard solution, which utilises a similar technology to Pyroguard's toughened range of products.

Smokeguard is suspended from brackets concealed in the ceiling void making it almost invisible in application, which maintains the architectural lines as dictated by the client and the designer alike.
The system, including all supplied glass and brackets, requires zero maintenance and has no maximum lifespan, and has been extensively tested to the rigors of the EN testing schedule.
Smokeguard provides significant cost reductions versus mechanical smoke curtains through lower initial investment costs, zero ongoing maintenance and no maximum lifespan.
