Smoke and hot gases generated by fire create large problems for occupants in a building attempting to escape from the direct heat. Problems related to life safety mainly arise because the time for evacuation proportionately increases with the height of the building, whereas smoke transfer to vertical shafts and stairwells occurs rapidly and increases substantially in the building. Vertical shafts such as stairs, lift well, electrical, communication, plumbing shafts and/or garbage chute are usually required to be isolated with fire rated doors and therefore less prone to fire spread but can be a major path of smoke spread in high-rise buildings.
The severe hazard arises especially in a confined condition such as sealed windows, centrally air-conditioned building and large un-segregated public and workplaces.
Statistics revealed that the predominant cause of fatal casualty is the smoke and hot gases. About 70% of injuries and deaths are due to smoke and hot gases. It can also be the greatest threat to property. In some cases, 100% of the losses have been occurred due to smoke and hot gases.
Fire Check Consultants have extensive experience in designing cost-effective smoke management system. The main aspect in the design of smoke management system is to maintain a tenable environment inside a building with the intent of providing safety and a clear path of egress to occupants in the event of a fire. There are several different aspects of tenability, including temperature, toxicity and visibility through the smoke. The issue can usually be addressed by limiting the production of smoke and its migration, thus maintaining a tenable environment in the evacuation routes.
We offer advice on smoke management systems by suitable building design and by providing fire protection measures such as powered and natural smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems, smoke containment, car park ventilation, shaft ventilation and pressurization systems. We also offer advice on specifications for the upgrade of existing smoke management system in buildings. The smoke management system also assists emergency response personnel in conducting search and rescue operations and in locating and controlling the fire.
