Design Solutions: Smoke Protection at the Elevator Hoistway
The course will provide you a better understanding of how smoke actually travels in multi-story building fires. To accomplish this, we will illustrate the physic of vertical smoke migration in mid- and high-rise building fires, and the hazards this presents for building occupants. We’ll then discuss how the building codes have evolved to address this hazard. Finally, we’ll review the various applications that have been developed in the market to meet these code requirements and protect building occupants form the hazards of smoke migration.
