The correct specification and installation of a Fire Safety System is paramount. However, ensuring that the system is maintained throughout its life also plays equal importance for fire safety. It plays a dynamic role in protecting the buildings occupants.
For example, the failure of a smoke ventilation system or inefficiency of a system will result in smoke being undetected and in turn not ventilated from the affected area. The consequence for this is the risk that individuals and firefighters are posed with when attending or escaping a building.
