Smoke and heat vent systems are an important component of a building's fire protection system. In case of fire, the main danger to life is not from the flames, but rather from smoke: 90% of all fire casualties are victims of toxic smoke.
In the event of a fire, smoke and combustion gasses rise up in the building due to their thermal uplift and form a layer of smoke gasses under the ceiling, which fills up the room in a short space of time.
With smoke vents in the upper sections of the façade or in the roof, smoke and heat can escape. Ventilation openings in the lower area increase the thermal uplift.
D+H offer state-of-the-art electrical smoke and heat vent technology for all applications, from smoke extraction in stairwells to complex smoke and heat vent systems for large buildings.
All smoke and heat vent systems comply with current Australian regulations. Winco Systems are distributors of D+H products.
