PPV

PPVWhat Is It?

Positive pressure ventilation (PPV), also known as positive input ventilators (PIV), are ventilation systems that remove smoke from buildings to increase the likelihood of safe evacuations in the event of a fire.

The Smoke Control Association (SCA) regulations dictate that lobby ventilation is required either by natural ventilation or mechanical smoke control systems and how to meet these standards.

How It Works

The system works by driving air into a lobby or stairwell, moving high-pressure air into low-pressure areas, forcing smoke out of the communal areas meaning people can evacuate safely.

The unit is operated by a smoke detector and will continue to run until it is reset.

PPVThe Result

This reduces the risks during a fire as people will be able to vacate the building safely.

However, other benefits include: the unit takes up minimal space, are relatively cheap to buy and install causing little disruption to your building and the units can be used for buildings or car parks.
