The following information shall accompany the CE marking symbol: Pressure differential systems can be achieved by two methods: These signals shall allow the pressure differential system 121011-5 the fire zone area to operate as required on the actuation of the fire detection system.

Guidance regarding the calculation of effective leakage areas for flow paths in series and in parallel is given in Clause The person responsible for the design of the system shall provide the occupier with a maintenance check list. By providing such a path to external air the desired pressure differential between the accommodation and the protected space can be maintained, thus excluding smoke from the protected space.

In a building this can result in upwards smoke movement between storeys if leakage paths exist to the storey above. However, if the corridor has many doors or other leakage paths the air supply needed may be large. However, in most cases the initial expansion forces may dissipate quickly and may be ignored. Where a ventilation system HVAC is used to form part of a pressurization or a depressurization system, the components shall comply with the requirements of this clause.

To prevent the build up of excessive pressures, either counter balanced flap valves or systems controlled by pressure sensors shall be used to provide for the release of excess pressurizing air from the protected space.

This Technical Report does not cover the following: This will ensure that at the early stages of a fire, prior to the establishment of the designed pressure differentials of the system, the escape routes and other sections of the smoke movement strategy are not adversely affected. In most circumstances the airflow requirement with doors open will be greater than with all doors closed. Fire and smoke control installations — 121015- Part 5: NOTE It is recommended that visual indication or electrical indication, identifying the exact position of dampers, should be incorporated within the system.


NOTE 1 Hereafter ‘type testing’ refers to all means of evaluation: A secondary supply is required from a generator or a separate substation, which is of sufficient capacity to maintain supplies to the life safety and fire protection installations, including smoke control systems, systems using pressure differentials and ancillary equipment. An override switch to reopen the closed damper and to close the open damper shall be provided for fire brigade use. If the rising main outlets are only inside the corridor or the accommodation in front of the lobbies, the door between lobby and corridor or accommodation on the storey below the fire storey has additionally to be assumed to be open during firefighting operations.

It is important to note that there is no protection of any part of an escape route within the depressurized space itself, which may be entirely filled with smoke, or may even be fully involved in a fire. Code of practice for the incorporation of atria in buildings BS Control panels and emergency control panels; Part If this is functioning normally, then it may be necessary to add further vents to increase the escape of air.

This Technical Report does not cover the following: If a set of fans is used for this escape route, then only the fan with the highest capacity need be duplicated.

CEN/TR 12101-5:2005

When a pressure differential system is used in conjunction with an HVAC system in the building it is also essential that any effects of wind speed 1101-5 direction are the same on both systems. The techniques most commonly used to limit the degree of smoke spread, or to control its effects, are: If such ductwork penetrates a fire-resisting compartment, the ductwork shall be protected with suitable fire resisting material.


It is therefore essential that the air pressure conditions for the pressure differential system air intake and exhaust are made substantially independent of wind speed and direction. A version in any other language made by translation under the responsibility of 12101- CEN member into its own language and notified to the Central Secretariat has the same status as the official versions. If buildings contain spaces such as computer suites or medical facilities that are pressurized for reasons other than fire, consideration shall 12101- given to protecting the pressurized escape route from the effects of fire in these pressurized spaces.

Particular attention shall be paid to the construction of the shafts that will be pressurized and the building envelope. The design requirements for a Class B system are shown in Figure 3. Standards are also available from the BSI website at http: In calculating the air supply two major assumptions should be made.

However, in compartmented buildings it may be possible to depressurize individual spaces. In a similar way, it is cf essential feature of a depressurization system that clean ambient air from the exterior shall 12101–5 able to enter the protected space. If the venting is not evenly distributed around the external wall, the side with the dr area of venting shall be discounted for the calculation. The switches, listed in Information on standards BSI provides a wide range of information on national, European and Licensed copy: Remember me on this computer.

Alternatively it is possible to utilise a system controlled by pressure sensors so that the air supply or exhaust can be continuously varied to produce the pressure or flow required. Records shall be kept of all maintenance and functional testing by the building management.
