Smoke / Natural Ventilation
Smoke ventilation systems are an essential component in most larger buildings. Even if not mandated by fire authorities, they are often an advisable element in the building fabric, providing valuable additional protection for occupants should a fire break out.
Often, smoke ventilation systems can be integrated with natural ventilation elements in the building’s fabric, such as those that enable atria to remain comfortable during summer periods of high solar gain.
Ventilation systems can take a variety of forms, depending on the style of building, its use, and orientation. As a result, smoke and natural ventilation systems are designed depending on the needs of the specific customer and building, with a project taken from consultation through design, manufacture, installation and maintenance.
