Keeping people and buildings safe from fire
The purpose of our smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems (SHEVS) is to save lives by reducing the potentially fatal build-up of smoke and heat, leaving an area of breathable air above the floor.
Statistics from the department for Communities and Local Government reveal that 53% of all fire-related fatalities result from people being overcome by smoke or gas, rather than dying from the fire itself. Smoke vents are life-saving devices that greatly increase occupants’ chances of survival in the event of fire.
As well as keeping escape and access routes smoke-free, SHEVS delay or prevent flashover to slow or stop fire developing to devastating levels. They help firefighters tackle blazes more safely, effectively and quickly, so they can save more lives and reduce structural and material damage to buildings.
