Smoke Stop

What is a Smoke Stop?

Definition: What Does the Term Smoke Stop Mean?
A smoke stop is not necessarily a fire stop. A smoke stop will stop the movement of smoke or fumes from on level of a structure to another, or from one space to another.

However, the smoke stop is not always a fire stop. Smoke stops are commonly required above the ceiling of a commercial building to prevent the transfer of smoke from one area
to the other.
