Title
(EN) SMOKE BARRIER SYSTEM
Abstract
(EN)

A smoke barrier system includes a bracket, a glass panel and a fastener. The glass panel defines a hole. The fastener is equipped to fasten the bracket to the hole of the glass panel. The bracket is fixed to a supporting construction on which the smoke barrier system is installed. The smoke barrier system also includes a first washer, wherein the washer is arranged between the fastener and the glass panel. The washer is an intumescent washer that expands under thermal influence of a fire, hot smoke and/or hot gas. Under thermal influence, the washer can form a thermally insulating layer. Furthermore, under thermal influence the intumescent washer can build up additional pressure between the fastener and the glass panel.
