Roofing technology has come a long way
Automatic smoke hatches. When it comes to auditoriums and conference centers, this one option can mean the difference between life and death.
The idea is this:
In the case of a fire, this technology saves lives. These smoke hatches are spring loaded, and they have a gas piece on the inside that allows them to open automatically once the internal temperature of the building reaches a certain temp, Once the smoke hatches have automatically opened, this allows smoke to escape, which gives any individuals trapped inside more time to exit safely.
Talk about life-saving measures.
