This Technical Information Sheet explains and demonstrates the risk management procedures that are available that help to alleviate the impact of smoke and the consequential risk to life and a building’s structural integrity.


Fire burns, but it’s smoke that kills!

To support the construction industry’s drive towards increased health and safety in buildings, this Technical Information Sheet focusses on ways to design and use effective smoke control solutions. The smoke and gasses that are released in a fire, kill more people that the fire itself. In this publication, we describe the responsibilities, processes and technologies that are available to help control the smoke if a fire was to occur.
