Smoke control in single storey buildings and warehouses

by Colt International Ltd

There are various uses to which smoke control systems can be put in the case of a fire in warehouses, factories and single storey sheds: To facilitate escape by providing smoke free escape routes. To reduce the likelihood of damage or loss to production or stock. To enable the fire-fighters to better see the fire and therefore to extinguish it more speedily and effectively. To permit greater travel distances to exits to be designed in, without the need for compartmentation, resulting in a larger or more open building plan. A well designed smoke ventilation system should be able to maintain adequate smoke free escape conditions at low level to allow the building to be evacuated with minimum risk of smoke inhalation, injury or death.
