Here at AB Glass, we believe smoke ventilation systems should be included in every facility’s fire safety strategy.
Whether the facilities are used for residential, commercial, healthcare, or educational reasons; smoke ventilation systems are essential in accommodating safe escape routes for building occupants.
So, what exactly are smoke ventilation systems, and how do they save lives?
As we all know, fire can be extremely dangerous. However, smoke is also extremely devasting and damaging. In fact, smoke causes more deaths than fire itself, due to the toxic fumes that can be breathed by building occupants.
In addition, the combination of smoke and hot air in a building can eventually build up to an explosion or a ‘flashover’, causing huge property damage.
Due to these reasons, a key part of any fire safety strategy needs to be minimizing the build-up and spread of smoke. Essentially, smoke ventilation systems do so by allowing smoke or hot air to escape buildings.
Smoke vent systems can:
- Keep escape and access routes clear of smoke.
- Facilitate fire-fighting operations.
- Reduce the risk of fires developing further.
- Reduce damage to buildings.
