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 can be dead within 15 minutes.
Smoke is different from fi re.
Although clearly related to fi re, smoke control systems
demand specifi c, thorough maintenance by specialist engineers.
All 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.
A smoke test is no substitute for a proper service.
If your AOV man is not conducting full motor resistance
and load tests, checking battery charge rates and identifying
any failures in the cause and effect sequence, then your system
is not being tested robustly enough to ensure that it will be
fully functional in the event of a real fi re.
That’s why you need specialist smoke control servicing.
