LABC approval for new solution for smoke and heat ventilation

SE Controls, fire, smoke, heat ventilation

An advanced system for smoke and heat exhaust ventilation developed by SE Controls has received full Registered Detail Certification from Local Authority Building Control following a detailed and extensive performance evaluation process. The SHEVTEC Extended Travel Distance System provides an off-the-shelf solution for developers to deliver extended travel distances with a single escape staircase while avoiding the expense of CFD modelling. The system enables the size of smoke shafts to be less than half the 1.5 m2 required by natural-ventilation system complying with Approved Document B.

The system has already been installed in an accommodation project for a thousand students in Nottingham, which was monitored and scrutinised as part of the detailed LABC verification process.
