Smoke ventilation (or SHEVs) removes smoke and heat from a burning building and keeps escape routes and fire service access areas clear.
It is vital that the smoke is removed from a burning building as quickly as possible to allow everyone to escape and the fire brigade to extinguish the fire.
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.
We have comprehensive experience in providing expert advice in the design, installation and servicing of smoke ventilation solutions.
We have worked with a wide range of window and facade manufacturers to develop solutions that meet the latest requirements laid down in European standard EN 12101-2.
