A building’s residents safety relies on the regular maintenance of the smoke ventilation system. This must be serviced and maintained a minimum of once a year to conform to British Standards BS7346 & BS5588.
To comply with building regulations communal stairwells must have an Automatic or Manual Opening smoke ventilation system to extract smoke.
The greatest danger to the occupants of a large building in the event of a fire is the smoke other than the heat from the fire. Even a small fire will rapidly fill a large building with smoke where people escaping the building cannot see to escape and be overcome by smoke inhalation.
The standard recognised method of overcoming these problems is to provide AOV or MOV smoke ventilation system with an automatically operated window or roof mounted ventilation.
