Smoke Control  recently installed a series of smoke vents at the Coolah Nursing Home.

The fire engineer developed a smoke management plan that required an increase in the time available to enable a ‘stay and defend’ strategy to be effectively used. This would also allow the safe and assisted egress of the elderly occupants from the nursing home in the event of a fire.

Key requirements for the smoke vents included natural ventilation, day lighting, watertight system and smoke and heat venting.

Smoke Control installed 4 Ventria multilateral louvre smoke ventilators at the nursing home, delivering all client requirements in a single product. The combined benefits of Smoke Control’s smoke ventilation systems created a significant overall saving for the nursing home.
