Do we need any smoke control in staircases?
Safe lives by Smoke and Heat Exhaust Vent systems
Passau, (PresseBox) - The people were not able to escape because of the smoke in the staircase during the fire happened last week in a house in Munich. It was the result of a very professional work of the fire brigade in Munich that no more people than the two was injured or killed by the effects of this fire. This is reason enough to hold the requirements in our building laws up for a smoke release system in staircases. And also the maintenance of these systems should be demanded to ensure smoke fire escape routes for people getting in contact with fire in houses. Only in this way we can avoid bigger damages during the 250.000 fires we have yearly in Germany.
