A portable Smoke Blocking Device
(also called "Smoke Stopper" / "BlockAid"
/ "PathMaster" / “Smoke Curtain”) can
limit smoke spread in a building fire.
This leads to:
- less smoke in escape routes
- more safety for civilians and firefighter
- less fire development due to less air access to the fire
- more effective and safer fire ventilation (and ppv/ppa)
- less smoke damage
The benefit of this has already been shown
in more than 2184 real building fires!

Smoke Stopper in a Fire Test:
Fire Tests have been performed in March 2009.
The quality of the portable smoke stopper was good enough
to withstand a direct fire exposure for about 45 minutes.
