Smoke extraction: Regulation point
The current European standard EN 12101-8 specifies the basic performance and requirements for smoke extraction dampers to be used with pressure differential systems and smoke and heat control systems.
The product standard EN 12101-8 is supplemented by two other standards defining the tests and classification of smoke extraction systems.
- EN 1366-10: fire resistance tests
- EN 13501-4: fire resistance rating
The smoke extraction damper is subjected to extensive tests of mechanical strength and leak-tightness at several temperatures and pressures to determine its classification.
Unlike the multi-compartment application (extraction or ducts serving several compartments), the "Mono-compartment" application, extraction or flue extraction line is directly connected to the outside without being in contact with another compartment.
The new MSD-F register meets European requirements for single-compartment smoke extraction applications.
The MSD-F is equipped with an all-or-nothing actuator protected by a thermal jacket. It can be installed vertically or horizontally, as a wall or as a recess. The smoke exhaust damper MSD-F meets the requirements of a CE marking.
