Architecture is about setting marks.

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.
