The effects of smoke being generated by fire can reduce the visibility for occupants and con increase the time to escape the fire, creating greater exposure to smoke inhalation that can consequently cause the loss of consciousness.
Smoke ventilation allows the creation of smoke free layer above the floor by removing smoke. This improves the conditions for safe escape and permits the fire to be fought in its early stages.
