Smoke Control saves Lives.
SHEVS saves Lives.
Engineered Smoke Control System (ESCS), also known as Smoke and Heat Exhaust Ventilation System (SHEVS), ensures that smoke, heat, and combustion gases are removed from a building the moment a fire starts, and greatly limits its impact and damage. It allows building occupants to seek safety without worrying about excessive smoke inhalation. An ESCS can also detect and resolve smoke to facilitate early evacuation and fire-fighting activities.
Besides the effects of fire, smoke is known as a silent killer. It is often undetectable and can build up in confined spaces, causing occupants to get disoriented, lose consciousness, and even cause loss of life. Engineered Smoke Control Systems are designed to detect and redirect smoke, significantly reducing its harmful effects and allowing additional time for occupants to evacuate. It also creates a safe environment for emergency responders to fight the fire.
Engineered Smoke Control Systems are a key installation in many commercial buildings to safeguard occupants’ safety. They include smoke curtains as well as ventilator systems, which help to channel smoke movement towards extraction points as well as remove them from building interiors.
At SHEVS IFT, our experienced fire safety engineers will assist in the design and installation process of our ESCS. We create tailored designs suited to the unique requirements of your building space, ensuring their optimal performance and helping minimise injuries and damage to infrastructure.
