To support the construction industry’s drive towards increased health and safety in buildings, the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has published a technical information sheet entitled Smoke Control Management

The smoke and gasses that are released in a fire kill more people that the fire itself, and so this technical information sheet addresses a need to focus on the ways to design and use effective smoke control solutions in buildings. 

The information sheet explains and demonstrates the risk management procedures that are available to help alleviate the impact of smoke and the consequential risk to life and a building’s structural integrity, addressing the responsibilities, processes and technologies that are available.

To access the information sheet, please see here.


The information sheet is authored by  Paul Evans FSEU AIFE MIFSM, CEO of Ash Fire Management and Ventilation Systems Limited.
