How does a Natural Smoke Ventilation System work?

They make use of the ‘passive’ forces of wind and thermal buoyancy – the process of hot air rising to draw in colder, denser air – to provide a safe escape route for a building’s occupants, and the attending Fire Rescue Services (FRS).

In the event of a fire, smoke detectors will activate the natural smoke venting system on that floor. This creates a natural airflow to purge smoke from the building and exhaust it into the atmosphere, offering a safe means of escape for occupants, with greater visibility and access for firefighters.

This approach allows the existing building façade, including windows, to be used as an integral element of the smoke ventilation strategy and is particularly useful in building with large atria.

Natural Smoke Ventilation is a cost-effective method of meeting the requirements of Approved Document B. Due to their limited amount of mechanical parts (usually just consisting of an actuator and fire doors) natural systems also require far less in the way of ongoing maintenance and day-to-day running costs, provided they are suitable for the job at hand.
