Using a ‘fi re company’ for your smoke control
maintenance could be dangerous.
Smoke control is a crucial life safety system. It needs to
be carefully designed, properly installed and meticulously
commissioned by recognised experts. Once installed, it must
be regularly checked and maintained by qualifi ed engineers.
These people should hold recognised third-party certifi cation.
Smoke kills twice as many people as fi re.
Fire grabs more headlines but it is the smoke that’s more
likely to kill you. It takes only 2-3 breaths of toxic smoke to
knock you out. 5-10 minutes of smoke inhalation can cause
permanent brain damage. You could be dead within 15 minutes.
Smoke control is too important to be entrusted
to a ‘fi re company’.
Although clearly related to fi re, smoke control systems
demand specifi c, thorough maintenance by specialist engineers.
Too often, smoke control is lumped in with fi re alarms and
security and then “subbed out to a smoke vent or AOV man”.
Sadly, not all of these are fully qualifi ed or competent.
