  2. The Benefits of Smoke Control

    The Benefits of Smoke Control

    Smoke control systems are designed primarily to protect escape routes for occupants to evacuate the premises safely, without being hindered by the effects of smoke. Alongside this, they enable firefighters greater access to tackle the fire more efficiently. Additionally, smoke control systems are implemented to protect stock and machinery and reduce the risk of explosions or potential building collapse.

    What is an automatic opening vent?

    Natural smoke ventilation, as the name suggests, facilitates the natural flow of air to extract smoke from a building in the event of a fire. The system uses louvre vents, windows or smoke shafts that open automatically in response to smoke being detected. This allows for the safer evacuation of those inside the building and easier access for the fire services.
