Smoke Machine Recommendations
Hey there, we're in the process of building a Fire Safety trailer to take to the local school and I need a recommendation for a smoke machine to install in this trailer. This is an 8 ft x 32 ft travel trailer and we will be smoking a small bedroom area and a larger living area. Can someone tell me what brand and model number you use for similar applications? And how do you have it installed? Is it ducted?
Any info you guys have is most appreciated.

Not sure of make but the one in the ready made trailer is ducted to three different rooms and controlled by manual sliding shut offs
If you have a party business in townor rental place they may have one to look at or may donate!!

I would recommend a water based product specifically intended for use in a smoke simulation environment. Even then, you want to be sure to warn any potential participants that simulated smoke may irritate people with asthma or similar respiratory conditions.
(Our smoke system came with the trailer from Scotty on a DHS grant purchase. I don't have the brand and model handy.)"Nemo Plus Voluptatis Quam Nos Habant"
The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

I too think that you should be looking at not only the brand or what's in your price range but also make sure that the functions match exactly what you need and want. A fireproofing nyc company that I know had to rehab and repsray a building which caught fire because the smoke/fire detector machines that they had weren't exactly correct for the type of structure it was.
