The most significant points for buildings with an atrium are thus the design of the atrium partition walls the smoke control in the atrium. If glass is used for openings or the roof, some preventive measures against falling glass are also necessary. In addition, if there are openings facing the atrium, the possibility of flames spreading to   Model APS – Atrium Fire Protection System VID Doc.

However, atriums bring a special set of fire protection challenges. The atrium may act as a roofed-over chimney providing an unrestricted path for heat and fire gases from anywhere in SCOPE This report is in two parts.

Part 1 is a review of the state-of -the-art with regard to fire safety in atrium buildings. It identifies that there is a lack of adequate requirements in NZS Chapter 5: Fire Resisting Construction and Means of Egress (NZS ) for such buildings.

Approaches in the above design guides will be reviewed in detail in this paper. This would help engineers to understand the principle behind and fire protection possibilities best suited to applications in historical buildings and museums.
