Smoke ventilation removes smoke and heat from a burning building and keeps escape routes and fire services access areas free of smoke. Smoke ventilation can save lives because the majority of fatalities in fires are caused by smoke inhalation and not by the fire itself.
Fire technical installations must meet a range of specific regulatory requirements, including smoke ventilation design based on automatic opening or closing of selected windows to ensure that people exit buildings safely. According to Danish legislation, smoke ventilation solutions must be designed, installed and maintained in accordance with BR10 specifications and the Danish Enterprise and Construction Authority's "Eksempelsamling om brandsikring af byggeri" (“Examples of fire safety measures in buildings" and Danish Institute of Fire and Security Technology (DBI) Instruction 027.
