Mechanical smoke extraction is one of the most essential methods used to secure buildings. It evacuates smoke, making the environment safer for people by facilitating the occupants’ exit from the structure. Mechanical smoke extraction can also help to safeguard constructions. The fire detection system (FDS) automatically activates mechanical smoke extraction in the event of a fire, thanks to the two systems’ connection in the fire safety centralisation unit (FSCU).
In many cases, smoke extraction is a regulatory requirement, as are the automated methods used to manage it. To advise you, the DEF Network possesses expertise in the applicable smoke extraction standards and regulations, and can liaise between the different trades involved, so as to ensure your systems’ compliance and coherence when your building project is delivered.
