AOV/ Smoke Ventilation Systems
Heat and smoke ventilation systems are both Life Safety Systems and are commonly installed in buildings for the following reasons:
Multiple Floors - The heat release rate from multiple floors is expected to be very high. In such cases, it is considered by some fire protection professionals desirable to vent the heat from the building if the temperatures in the building reaches sufficiently high levels to endanger the structural stability of the roof system. Smoke venting is also considered to provide a minor benefit to increase the visibility in the interior space to facilitate manual fire fighting efforts for a limited period of time.
Large Open Areas – Venting smoke from large spaces which regularly contain large numbers of people, such as Shopping Centres and Atriums.
