Fire safety is one of the most critical aspects of building design and maintenance. But have you ever thought about how those life-saving fire protection systems work?

At Door Systems of Alaska, we don’t just install fire-rated barriers – we engineer comprehensive strategies to safeguard your property and occupants. Let’s dive into the nuts and bolts of fire protection.

The Essentials of Fire Protection

An effective fire protection system has four essential functions: detection, containment, suppression, and evacuation. It all starts with sensors that catch the first whiff of smoke or spike in temperature, instantly triggering alarms. From there, fire-rated doors, curtains, and dampers lock down the blaze, cutting off fresh oxygen and creating protective zones around exit routes. Sprinklers and extinguishing systems kick in to control and douse the flames while emergency lighting guides occupants to safety.

Elegant Solutions for Complex Environments

Every building has its unique layout and potential fire risks to consider. That’s where Door Systems of Alaska’s expertise comes into play. We collaborate closely with architects and contractors to design custom fire protection plans tailored to the specific project needs.

Our horizontal separation systems provide a discreet safety net with open, airy designs for atriums or lobbies. Need protection around elevator shafts? We’ve got specialized hoistway solutions covered. And if your application calls for sweeping 80-foot openings or areas with high occupancy levels, our oversized fire doors and multiple exit strategies ensure a safe and code-compliant evacuation path.

Our ability to seamlessly integrate these life-safety elements with the intended architectural aesthetic sets us apart. From basic kitchen service window shutters to massive automatic-resetting fire doors, our products preserve your envisioned open, contemporary look—no clunky, obtrusive traditional fire doors in sight.
