Guidance & Regulations

Understanding the Regulations

The design of a Smoke Heat and Exhaust Ventilation system (SHEV) falls into two distinct areas, namely code compliant systems and projects requiring a fire engineered solution. There are Regulations, Approved Documents and Design Guidance which sit within a heirachy of importance that must be adhered to. Examples of these important documents are below:

Regulations, Recommendations and Guidance:

  • Approved Document B (ADB - Regulations for Natural Smoke Ventilation)
  • CPR and CE Marking
  • BS EN12101 Series (parts 1-10)
  • BS7346 - 8 (Product components code of practice)
  • BS9991 (Residential)
  • BS9999 (Commercial)
  • BS7974 (Fire engineered Solutions)
  • Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
This is covered in more detail, including the application of these regulations and guidance, in our Product Specification Guide.
