• Smoke Extract & Building Pressurisation

In today's environment, if allowed to spread, Fire, Smoke and other noxious fumes can endanger safe means of escape, whilst causing widespread damage to buildings.

By removing these and other harmful fumes, smoke ventilation assists fire fighters in more readily identifying the fire source, enabling location of potential casualties and occupants still within the building for prompt escape, whilst also minimising smoke and fume accumulation.

From 2005 EN12101-3: 2002 replaced all the National Standards used within the EU including the British Standard 857346 Part2: 1990. The CE marking of Smokevent fans is now a requirement for the marketing of these fans within the EU. The CE mark declares the product bearing it complies with all applicable EU regulations.

The specific issues that need to be addressed for smoke ventilation include the following:

  • The ability to maintain reasonable conditions in occupied areas and escape routes; to provide increased visibility to allow fire personnel to be more effective and minimise property damage and clear smoke from buildings once a fire is under control.
