          C.Weighted Bottom Bar: Prevents deflection. Ensures correct operation under gravity.
 
          D.Roller: Constructed from octagonal tube. Incorporates a 24 VDC motor, gearbox, and a sealed heavy duty ball bearing assembly.
 
          E.Motor Control Circuit: Housed in steel enclosure mounted on motor end of head box.
 
          F.Motorized Curtain Electromagnetic Force Controlled Speed of Descent:
          1.Minimum: 6 inches (152 mm) per second.
          2.Maximum: 24 inches (610 mm) per second.
 
          G.Housed Battery System: Must be incorporated in the Group Control Panels for operation during total power loss conditions.
 
          H.Label each smoke containment system with the following information:
          1.Manufacturer's name.
          2.Maximum leakage rating at specified pressure and temperature conditions.
          3.Label of quality control agency.
 
          2.5OPERATION
 
          A.Smoke and Fire Curtain Deployment: Upon signal from fire alarm system in emergency situation.
 
          B.Total Loss of Primary and Auxiliary Power: System must be proven to "fail safe" to the operational position.
 
          C.Normal Operating Conditions: Curtains held in retracted position via motors operating at low voltage. Manufacture must confirm motor windings are suitable for this type of operation.
 
          D.Upon Activation of Fire Alarm: Control panel removes supply voltage and the curtain descends under power of gravity in a controlled manner.
          1.Descent Speed Control: Dynamic braking system housed in motor control circuit. Descent is electronically synchronized on overlapping curtains with a bottom bar.
 
          E.Curtain Retraction: Control panel supplies 24 V to motor control circuits. Motors drive curtains to the upper position. When the bottom or stopping bar contacts the curtain head box, a current limiting circuit steps back the voltage and current, holding curtain in the retracted position.
 
          F.Limit switches must not be used to control the upper position of the curtain.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Braking system is optional. Delete if not required.
 
          G.Braking System: Two stage descent during gravity deployment. If main power to group control panel fails, power is automatically switched to the integral standby battery.
          1.Curtain remains in retracted position for 1 hour (fully retracted loaded system).
          2.Curtain remains fully operational until battery low voltage cut off facility reads a voltage of 21 V. Curtains then safely descend under gravity power to operational position.
 
          H.Group Control Panel: Provide Group Control Panel (GCP) capable of controlling up to 5 no. 24v motor assemblies.
          1.During Normal Operation: GCP provides 24 VAC supply to the curtain motor holding curtains in the retracted position.
          2.Upon Smoke Detection: The GCP fire alarm contact is opened by the fire alarm control system. The GCP removes the 24 V supply to curtain motors and curtains descend under the power of gravity in a controlled manner.
 
          I.Open on Fire: Configured to be gravity fail safe.
 
          J.Test Facility: Key switch required.
 
          K.Push to Exit Buttons: Must contain internal battery back-up power supply for fail safe operation for ICC ES requirements.
 
          L.Weight of Bottom: 1.5 pounds per foot (2.23 kg per meter) of curtain for secondary means of egress for compliance with ICC ES requirements.
