Smoke and heat vents are often required
Smoke vents and smoke and heat ventilation systems are required by countries’ building regulations, fire safety and prevention designs, insurance companies and building permits. Smoke vents are installed in stairwells.
Smoke and heat ventilation systems are required in buildings that call for a low-smoke layer if there is a fire. These include industrial buildings with production or storage facilities. They prevent hazardous gases from accumulating, rooms from becoming too hot and fires from spreading. Smoke and heat ventilation systems help people evacuate. These systems also assist in firefighting and rescue work.
All-round service for your system
Smoke and heat ventilation systems ensure that emergency escape and rescue routes are usable by quickly dissipating smoke and heat.
We provide automatic reminders for the yearly required maintenance.
We provide expert advice and, when necessary, call in fire safety and prevention professionals.
With CWS, you have access to consultations, planning, installation, maintenance and repair all from the same source.
Selection of the smoke extraction system
The choice of a SHEVS system depends on the area of the roof, windows and facades. For specific determination, the installer uses geometric and aerodynamic parameters, the room height and the necessary low-smoke layer. In addition, several influencing variables are taken into account in the calculation so that the SHEVS system optimally fulfills its purpose.
The specialist planners at CWS Fire Safety will support you with their expertise in planning the optimal smoke ventilation system. Request a quote now.
Installation and approval of smoke vents
CWS installs smoke and heat extraction systems with precisely fitting exhaust air openings. We install the control unit, actuator, opening units, wiring system and safety power supply in your building. We also provide support in combining the SHEV system with other fire protection equipment such as fire alarm or sprinkler systems.
The CWS fire protection experts provide you with everything from a single source and prepare your smoke ventilation system for successful expert acceptance.
Maintenance of smoke extractors
After successful approval, we coordinate regular maintenance and testing. SHEV systems must be maintained once a year in accordance with DIN 18232 and VdS/CEA Guideline 4020. We recommend shorter intervals in dust-laden operating facilities.
Testing in accordance with TPrüfVO by a recognized testing expert is mandatory for smoke and heat extraction systems and takes place every 3 - 6 years, depending on the federal state. In the case of smoke extraction systems for stairwells, this is generally not necessary unless it is directly required. To ensure proper operation, we check releases, controls, openings, power supply lines and accessories for proper functioning and operational readiness. You will immediately receive the professional documentation digitally.
