Smoke Ventilation Systems - Fire Design Solutions - Car Park Ventilation

Fire Design Solutions are experts in the design and installation of fire safety systems including mechanical and natural smoke venting, car park ventilation and fire alarm systems. We provide a complete solution for clients including design, supply, installation, commissioning, service and maintenance. We work with clients across a wide spectrum of requirements from fire engineering design advice through to value engineered innovative design and install solutions for large scale mixed used building projects. Our integrated service delivers reliable, cost effective fire system solutions to create safer environments that achieve building regulation approvals and address issues such as space maximisation and architectural aesthetics.

Smoke Control Saves Lives

Using CO monitoring and a stepped control algorithm, Fire Design Solutions ensure there is sufficient air extraction to remove day-to-day pollutants properly, while maintaining maximum energy efficiency. Smoke is a real threat to life in an enclosed space such as an underground car park and causes significant issues for firefighters dealing with the fire. Fire Design Solutions’ smoke extraction and ventilation systems are designed to rapidly remove smoke during and after a fire.

Smoke Ventilation Systems – Mechanical

Our Mechanical Smoke Ventilation Systems (MSVS) are an alternative method to Natural Smoke Venting. In the event of a fire, mechanical smoke vent systems offer the ultimate in smoke control as they remove smoke from the building, thus aiding the occupants’ means of escape and providing suitable access for firefighting services.

This type of smoke extraction system comprises of a mechanical extract shaft that serves the common corridor and/ or lobby. When smoke is detected within a protected lobby, only the fire damper to the smoke shaft on the fire floor will open (all other dampers will remain locked shut). In turn, the vent at the head of the staircase will open allowing the smoke to be removed and make up air for the smoke extraction system. The fan at the top of the mechanical smoke shaft extracts the smoke and prevents migration of smoke into the adjacent compartments.

Smoke Ventilation Systems – Natural

Fire Design Solutions provides a complete turnkey package for natural smoke ventilation systems. Our integrated service delivers cost-effective smoke venting solutions to create safe environments that meet all necessary approvals. The systems remain sympathetic to the architect’s aesthetic vision, while offering maximum floor space efficiency and cost savings. From initial design, through installation, to commissioning and ongoing servicing, it is a total solution that offers hassle-free handover, testing and maintenance – as a standalone system or as part of an integrated fire safety approach.

Car Park Ventilation

Fire Design Solutions are experts in the design and installation of both commercial and residential Car Park Ventilation Systems. Car park venting systems are required to exhaust pollutants produced by vehicles and, in the event of fire, clear smoke to assist the fire service. Depending on the type of car park, there are a variety of ventilation systems that can be utilised. Our aim is to provide the most cost-effective solution tailored to the type of car park, the layout of the car park and any additional fire legislation that may be in force over and above the basic code standards.


We employ a team of highly qualified and hugely experienced fire engineering consultants. These experts work together to provide architects, contractors and developers with truly creative solutions that integrate perfectly with the wider building design and make a real difference to the overall cost of a smoke ventilation project.

Service & Maintenance

Fire Design Solutions helps your system adhere to current Smoke Ventilation Regulations by providing planned maintenance and an emergency call-out service for support. Our maintenance service is not only comprehensive, but cost-effective too, ensuring optimum product performance. In the event of equipment failure, our response and repair service is fast and efficient. Preventative maintenance support is also offered, extending the life of a system, reducing the likelihood of equipment failure and ensuring all legislative obligations are met.
