Cold Smoke Ventilation

What is the Purpose of Cold Smoke Ventilation?

A cold smoke ventilation system is used to give a clear escape route in a multi-occupancy building, these can either be single-zone systems for a stairwell or more complex multi-zone systems where lobby areas would need to activate in conjunction with the stairwell to clear the escape route of smoke.

These systems are designed to comply to EN 12101 standards and have battery back up so will open the vent(s) in the event of a power failure.
