Risk of fire and smoke dangers are greater in high-rise rather than low-rise buildings. Use of high expansion foam delivered through elevator shafts can prevent or reduce smoke and fire damage and injury in high-rise buildings. Injection of foam with high multiplicity due to structural rigidity can accumulate between floors of buildings to prevent the spread of flame and smoke. Reaching an area of high-intensity flame, this foam is destroyed, resulting in the absorption of energy from the upward flow of products of combustion.
