Are your smoke control systems properly installed and maintained?
If you're not sure, we can help.
How properly working smoke control systems help save lives and buildings:
By venting smoke from the building, the occupants can see the fire exits more easily, making escape routes more effective.
By venting smoke form the building, fire fighters have an easier job of locating the fire early on and extinguishing it, thereby containing and eliminating it faster.
By venting heat from the building the number of sprinkler heads that operate are focused directly over the fire rather than over a wide expanse – reserving the precious water supply for the sprinklers directly above the fire.
By venting heat from the building, the high level temperatures are reduced – retaining the structural integrity of the steelwork for longer, potentially avoiding complete building collapse.
