We install and maintain all types of smoke ventilation systems and can provide regular maintenance and testing of all smoke ventilation systems.
Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, the building owner or manager is responsible for ensuring the smoke ventilation system is compliant. Compliance doesn’t just mean having a fire safety contract for a building, compliance is about providing a regulated building which is safe for occupation.
Below are some key guidance and regulations:
BS7346-8 summarises the entire process from design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of the system.

BS9999 and BS9991 These standards cover fire safety in the design, management and use of non-residential and residential buildings respectively.
