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.

The extraction of smoke and heat build up in any building can often be a difficult task to overcome. However, the inclusion of window automation systems can provide a simple ventilation system that meets with Building Regulations.
When creating a smoke ventilation system, natural ventilation provides a simple, reliable solution, with low noise and energy usage. The use of windows as natural smoke vents is a popular choice, as they are often already included in a building’s design, and can increase the amount of natural light in an area, which wouldn’t be possible when using dedicated vents. But what is the 'free area' and how is it calculated?
When it comes to specifying, installing and maintaining fire systems, it is important to remember the purpose and importance of smoke ventilation. This mini-guide looks at the options and professional support available when it comes to smoke ventilation specification.
