Smoke Pressure Systems (SPS)

Smoke Pressure Systems (SPS) save lives

In the event of fire, an SPS is responsible for creating controlled over-pressure to ensure that the escape and rescue routes that are mandatory and must be protected under building law are free of smoke or that smoke levels are kept down. Depending on the building type and utilisation, such routes might include staircases, fire service lift shafts and escape tunnels – including the areas leading to them

Delivering Smoke Pressure Systems for your safety

The SPS System from Kingspan Light + Air | STG is a complete “turnkey” solution for escape stairwells, corridors and lobbies. We provide a complete system design, all hardware, such as fans, controls, dampers, actuators and ductwork and could then provide a service contract to fully support and maintain the system throughout the life of the building.
With Smoke Pressurisation Systems (SPS) from other manufacturers that we encounter via our service division, our team provide a full maintenance plan for all equipment. We also perform full systems tests, checking and adjusting for correct pressures and flow rates to ensure that the system will operate as intended in the event of a fire scenario.

Smoke Pressure Systems secure escape and rescue routes

A fire creates a toxic mixture of fumes that can generally reach life-threatening concentrations in just two to four minutes. A smoke pressure system (SPS), also known as an overpressure ventilation system, designed to the specific requirements of a building ensures safe escape and rescue routes for users and firefighters and minimises the risk of owners and operators being held liable.  This holds especially true in high rise office and residential complexes where thousands of people live and work and where  care must be taken to ensure that emergency exits and stairwells can be used to exit the building in the event of a fire.
