Smoke Control and Natural Ventilation for Whiston Hospital

10 November 2009

News article image for Smoke Control and Natural Ventilation for Whiston Hospital
SE Controls have recently installed, commissioned and supplied a smoke and natural ventilation system at Whiston Hospital, in Merseyside, to regulate the internal comfort of the atria and keep the stair cores free from smoke in the event of a fire.

The natural ventilation system operates via strategically placed sensors within the atria to control and monitor the internal environment. When a predefined set point is reached the window automation would be active to provide clean fresh air into the particular area of the building.

Smoke ventilation was provided in the atria to establish a stable smoke reservoir in the height of the atria to aid in the safe escape of occupants in the event of a fire and to reduce the smoke to maintain tenable conditions.
