Summed up it is a process of redirecting smoke and fumes in order to save lives and assets.
The advantages of smoke control systems
The first advantage to specify and install smoke control systems are to protect escape routes and to assist firefighters in the event of a fire.
Another advantage of smoke control systems is that stock and machinery can be protected and the risk of loss of the building (perhaps due to roof collapse) can be reduced.
Smoke ventilation systems utilise smoke detectors, vents, smoke curtains, smoke dampers, smoke shafts and fans to protect a building from a fire. The system is only truly operational if all elements work in the correct sequence.
