Smoke Ventilation Service & Maintanence
Smoke Control ventilation systems play an important part in protecting a building, its occupants and its contents, and must operate in the event of smoke/fire detection. It is critical that the smoke ventilation equipment installed performs instantly and effectively.
What can possibly happen?
Approximately 100 fires per day are recorded in Ireland. A fire releases smoke and hot gases, which if not adequately dealt with by smoke ventilation systems will cause smoke inhalation by people with possibly death, and will hamper safe evacuation and fire-fighting.
In Irish law, smoke ventilation systems must be regularly inspected and be operational. The owner or the management company of all premises are responsible for the statutory inspection and maintenance of smoke ventilation systems. Smoke ventilators are an essential element of the smoke/fire management and emergency exit strategy for your building. They must operate in a fire/emergency situation to ensure that the escape routes for your personnel and any members of the public is unimpeded by smoke.
It is critical that buildings which are frequented by members of the public and are therefore not familiar with your building escape routes, have smoke prevention systems operational. The installed smoke ventilation system must be inspected and maintained on a regular basis to ensure your system is signed-off in a fully operational condition.
