Specialist supply and extract systems for ventilation in areas the have specific requirements
Smoke is recognised as the major killer during fire outbreaks. It can spread quickly to nearby buildings that are quite remote from the original blaze, threatening life and damaging property. Stairwells and elevator shafts frequently become smoke logged, blocking evacuation routes and preventing firefighters and other rescue teams from doing their critical jobs. Thor Duct ® Smoke Extract ductwork is a key component of a fire strategy, by safely funnelling smoke out of a building.
Kitchen extract poses a specific risk due to the presence of combustible contaminants, namely grease, inside the ductwork. When a kitchen extract passes through multi-compartments, there is a risk from a fire in a compartment outside the kitchen. This can cause the grease inside the duct to ignite, and the fire to spread throughout the building.
