Smoke Vents

What is a Smoke Ventilation System?

A Smoke Ventilation System is a fire life safety system designed primarily to remove smoke and heat from a burning building, maintaining escape routes and allowing clear fire fighting access.

With over 20 years’ experience, we have provided Smoke Ventilation Systems for a wide range of customers, including architects, M & E contractors, property managers, local authority and residential customers.

How does a Smoke Ventilation System work?

A smoke ventilation system is designed to create and maintain a smoke-free layer above the escape route floor, reducing the build-up of smoke and heat and increasing the escape time for buildings occupants.

By maximising visibility and reducing the presence of smoke and harmful gases, rapid smoke ventilation also enables the emergency services to find and tackle the fire as early as possible.

What are the different types of Smoke Ventilation System?

Our accreditation with IFC ensures our customers can rest assured their life safety requirements are in safe hands

Mechanical Smoke Ventilation Systems

Mechanical Smoke Ventilation systems are designed to keep escape and access routes free from smoke and to facilitate fire-fighting operations. The systems use powered elements such as fans to force the movement of smoke to allow it to escape through dampers, grills and vents. Mechanical systems are useful where natural airflow is insufficient or impracticable.

Natural Smoke Ventilation

In the event of a fire, natural venting systems open airways, using natural airflow dynamics to remove smoke. This can be attained by opening windows or vents, automatic opening vents (AOVs) or, where there is no external wall, a vertical smoke shaft. Smoke can exit the building whilst fresh air can enter.

Automatic Opening Vents (AOVs)

Typically, an AOV system will incorporate venting, windows, doors and an actuator. Often to be found within the roof of stairwells and corridors, Automatic Opening Vents (AOVs) allow the external ventilation of smoke and heat which has developed as a result of fire inside the building.

Smoke Containment Systems

Smoke Containment Systems prevent the movement of smoke and heat from one area to another. They take the form either of physical barriers such as smoke curtains or fire curtains, or as pressure differential systems, also known as pressurisation systems.

Car Park Ventilation Systems

Induction/Impulse (or jet) fans clear smoke from enclosed or underground car parks. These are often combined with fume ventilation to prevent the build-up of vehicle exhaust gases in normal day to day use of the car park. Louvres, dampers, and powered smoke extraction fans are also often integrated into the scheme.
