Smoke Control installs smoke vents into a nursing home!
The fire engineer developed a smoke management strategy that required an increase in the time available to allow a stay and defend strategy to be effectively used. The reason for this is because the elderly occupants require safe and assisted egress in the event of a fire. The client required several features in the one product: natural ventilation, day lighting, a water tight system and smoke and heat venting. The combined benefits of Smoke Control’s smoke ventilation systems created a significant overall saving for the nursing home.
The solution provided by smoke control included 4 Ventria multilateral louvre smoke ventilators.
