Smoke control systems are required in multi-storey residential buildings, principally to protect the stairs to assist escape in the event of a fire, in compliance with the recommendations of Approved Document B and BS 9991:2011.
In multi-storey residential buildings, the main escape route is always via common corridors and/or lobbies into the stairs. The aim is to keep stairs reasonably free of smoke and to improve conditions in corridors and lobbies opening onto the stairs.
If an apartment is on fire and the front door is opened (typically for occupants to escape) a significant amount of smoke can quickly fill a corridor or lobby, making escape difficult for occupants. So legislation limits the distance between fire doors in corridors to 30m and the length of dead-end corridors to 7.5m in order to limit the distance people may have to travel through smoke. (BS 9991 permits 15m if the apartments have sprinklers installed).
If the smoke enters the stairs it can also make escape difficult for occupants of other apartments and may even hamper the fire service entry and deployment of the firefighters. Smoke control systems are provided for each stairway and for the lobbies or corridors opening onto each stairway to stop smoke from spreading. Ventilation may be either natural or mechanical, alternatively a pressurisation system may be used.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 imposes a duty on persons with control of premises to carry out fire risk assessments.
