Natural smoke ventilation

Published:  02 September, 2007

SE

To help architects, contractors, developed and building-services engineers understand the requirements of the Building Regulations for smoke-control systems in residential buildings, SE Controls has updated its popular guide on the subject. It includes information on the latest systems, European product standards, design approaches and information on meeting the requirements of Approved Document B.

The latest changes to this document recognise the need for designers to treat smoke control as a system, making specific reference to the new European EN12101 family of standard products covering smoke- and heat-exhaust ventilation systems.

The new document also recognises the now widespread use of smoke shafts and sets out practical guidance and regulations regarding the form and function of the shaft and the smoke- and heat-exhaust control system.
