Smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems are designed to ensure a smoke-free layer in the lower floor area of extensive halls or industrial halls in the event of a fire. Such zones not only keep escape routes sufficiently free of smoke, but also ensure fast access for the fire service. This makes it easier to fight the fire and rescue the injured who are not able to escape unaided. This can often help to prevent an incipient fire from becoming a major one.
You have to take many divers factors into account in order to ensure the establishment of a stable smoke-free layer in the event of fire. Our specialists will determine the whole complex. By considering the geometry of the hall, the fire safety infrastructure and fire load, the air inlet and extraction surface can be determined. Additionally, recommendations regarding the layout and activation of the SHEV devices can be made.
Regulations like the German Industrial Building Guideline dictate the proof of a low-smoke layer within rooms bigger than 1,000m2.
Even in smaller rooms, it is possible to provide evidence. This guarantees safety for the operators and for the staff.
