Smokesure Smoke Ventilation

Staircases, lobbies and corridors can become effective escape routes or smoke-filled death traps. It depends how they are designed and managed. They can be kept free of smoke by pressurisation or depressurisation systems or by natural ventilation means – depending on the nature of the building.

The right FEA Smokesure solution will use CFD technology, a combination of sensors and electronic controls, automatic smoke ventilation, smoke barriers and integral smoke shafts to disperse smoke and keep all routes clear and safe for escape or for access by fire fighters.

The natural smoke Smokesure system can comprise facade AOV’s or smoke shaft dampers, head of smoke shaft ventilator, head of stairwell smoke ventilator and associated controls systems, all compliant with current standards.

The Smokesure mechanical smoke shaft system for the ventilation of firefighting lobby and extended lobbies as a means of escape is a tried and tested alternative to a natural ventilation system.
