Smoke and environmental ventilation of multi-storey buildings using shafts

Shaft systems can be used in multi-storey buildings to provide smoke and environmental ventilation. Such systems have been greatly developed and enhanced in recent years to provide greater effectiveness whilst occupying less space. This in turn has allowed greater freedom to designers.

This whitepaper looks at the various types and applications of shafts, including:

  • Ventilation of fire-fighting stairs
  • Ventilation of common corridors in residential developments
  • Extending travel distances in common corridors beyond what is permitted by the regulations by using mechanical shafts
  • Day to day ventilation and cooling
  • Pressurisation
