When a building catches fire, civilians inside are more likely to be injured or killed by smoke than by the fire itself. To mitigate this risk, a smoke control system is deployed to stop smoke from migrating within a building and to get smoke out of the building as quickly as possible. A correctly working smoke control system will keep smoke away from escape routes and enable easier ingress for firefighting services, saving both lives and assets which are otherwise at serious risk from smoke during a fire.
The Guidepost Solutions electronic fire system designers successfully collaborate with the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) design team to ensure all building systems operate in an appropriate manner with the electronic fire notification system. They work together to keep people safe and mitigate the spread of fire. No matter the size, shape, or layout of a building, we can meet the challenges associated with smoke control systems and provide well-engineered smoke control system design.
