Somerset 313 Smoke Curtains

I was having tea with my friend at the Coffee Bean at 1130AM and discussing about investment when suddenly the Fire Alarm was activated. It rang for a while and later went off. But the SMOKE CURTAINS come down and crush onto the furniture at Coffee Bean. Staffs remove the chairs and tables and allow the smoke curtain to touch the ground.

This is the cooliest fire prevention technology I have seen at Somerset 313, even the elevator can be covered up. No access from B2 to B3 as escalator seal up. Is this protection or preventing customers from escaping on B1 and B2.

The best part is there is no public announcement that the Fire Alarm was a false alarm. Customers and staff was confused on this smoke curtain. So business just continue with the smoke curtains down.

As lunch time approaches, security and technician was still not able to lift up the smoke curtains. They use a manual chain to rise it up but it got stuck and they have to release it back again. They are back on the phone asking for help.

Smoke Curtains cover the B1 and B2 floors so that no smoke can penetrate the level.

I left the place at 130PM to meet my vendors and the smoke curtain was still not raise up yet.
