The two stairwells leading to each floor are protected using the Colt Firepath FM1 Fire Curtain whilst the lift lobbies and void areas are protected by the Colt SmokeMaster SM4 smoke curtain. Each smoke curtain has been programmed with multiply drop times and delays including the added benefit of an emergency push button for additional safety.
