Compartmentation restricts the spread of smoke

Regulations specify that premises must be divided into fire compartments and smoke compartments. Why? Fire compartmentation and smoke compartmentation result in smaller building units. Smoke and fire spreads less rapidly or does not spread through the entire building. Compartmentation also facilitates fire fighting. After all, the fire brigade can concentrate on a smaller area.

Aims of compartmentation

The most important aim of fire compartmentation and smoke compartmentation is to create smoke-free zones so that people can vacate a building safely. Compartmentation also ensures that damage to products and premises is prevented as much as possible.

Compartmentation at an early stage in the design

Often buildings require an open structure. For instance shopping centres,
manufacturing companies, railway stations and airports demand open areas. So it is essential to consider compartmentation at an early stage in the design. Brakel is happy to assist you with advice and assistance in making smart use of compartmentation. Arrange an appointment, with no obligations.
