Why you need a Fire Safety Consultant

Much as property can be insured and replaced in case of loss occasioned by a fire disaster, unfortunately this does not apply to loss of life. It is vitally important to ensure that existing or upcoming buildings are assessed by a fire safety risk assessment consultant, to determine the efficiency of:

(i) Fire detection systems - e.g. smoke detectors, uv detectors
(ii) Fire suppression systems
(iii) Smoke extraction systems
(iv) Evacuation systems in relation to standard egress timings

Plugholing

Plugholing is a phenomenon that can drastically compromise the efficiency of mechanical smoke extraction by increasing the smoke layer height (Click figure to view), as shown by figure on the right. This increase in smoke layer height may endanger the lives of the evacuees. Plugholing is usually a result of poor design of the mechanical ventilation systems. Computational modelling (CFD) is recommended for a proper design of the mechanical ventilation systems. Please do not hesitate to contact Ernest on +254(0)729151906, for more details on CFD approach.
