Smoke vent specialists should be approaching clients and specifiers to provide early warning of the impending cost increases resulting from the use of certain types of systems. Search all products by.

The most practical option, from a system integration point of view, would be to use a fully tested and certified matched smoke vent fan and VSD solution, which fully complies with EN This combination is certified under BS EN Inverter drives are commonly used in smoke control applications.

Specification for powered smoke and heat exhaust ventilators AMD Withdrawn. As a part of the development process for portable smoke exhaust fans, a numerical analysis model of the portable smoke exhaust fan was derived from the building in which a fire occurred, and an analysis on the smoke and toxic gas exhaust effects was performed in this study.

Worldwide Standards We can source any standard from anywhere in the world. Ventilation equipment, Ventilators, Smoke control, Smoke extraction buildingsSmoke, Heat, Fire safety, Fire safety in buildings, Fire spread prevention, Exhaust systems.

With so many pressure control systems currently being specified or gs design stage, the industry requires immediate clarity from the approving authority to advise how they intend to enforce the new rules.


The effect of these changes on some common smoke ventilation systems are summarised in the following table:. Many manufacturers provide a fire mode option that disables the control functions and motor protection in an emergency and allows the motors to run to destruction if bss however, as there have been very few tests carried out under fire conditions there is a lack of certainty about their performance.

The numerical analysis results showed that under a condition where the height of an opening is less than 1. Take the smart route 21101-3 manage medical device compliance. What remains to be seen is whether clients and specifiers appreciate that systems will become more costly due to the need for expensive VSD filters, oversized fan motors 12101–3 increased power supplies and that plant space requirements needed to accommodate fans and control panels will need to be increased.

VSDs also provide useful soft-start functionality to reduce large fan start-up currents reducing stress on essential power supply networks and generators. Their committees work with the manufacturing and service industries, government, businesses and consumers to facilitate the production of British, European and International standards. The use of inverters in emergency conditions has long been a topic of conversation within the industry.


Inverter drives also known as variable speed drives or VSDs are commonly used in smoke control applications to limit and modulate fan speed to suit a particular system design.

Bss may find similar items within these categories by selecting from the choices below:. Once this is appreciated, the appeal and advantage of using a fully tested and certified matched smoke vent fan and VSD solution should then be recognised.

For example, when using smoke extract to protect escape lobbies it is common to vary the speed of the fan according to the pressure in the lobby to prevent the lobby becoming depressurised which could make it difficult to open exit doors. Pressure control systems relying on fan speed modulation are unable to comply with this condition.

On the other hand, if the smoke exhaust fan operates after the fire source disappears, smoke is directly exhausted to the outside due to the operation of the smoke exhaust fan, and the smoke density within the space drops sharply in all opening height conditions, thereby getting close to zero. Output filters provide additional protection to motor insulation. Accept and continue Learn more about the cookies we use and how to change your settings.
