Smoke Ventilation Systems

Given the wide range of smoke ventilation systems available – from simple natural systems to more complex but efficient mechanical systems – it may seem difficult at first to identify which is the right fit for your project.

The type of smoke venting system that you require is determined by several factors, however the purpose of a well-designed smoke ventilation system is always the same; protecting escape routes such as corridors and staircases to allow occupants to escape while providing access for the fire service.
