Smoke Management Test procedures

Question asked by shinesss on Jun 13, 2019


Please advise the advise the procedures for performing the smoke testing in car park (basement floors)


We are in the processing performing the smoke test for the car park ventilation system installed in the basement floors 


Basically the questions are related to the below

1. what kind of smoke machines can be used for generating the smoke
2. What should be the level (visibility) of smoke to be created
3. When we need to activate Fire alarm / signal to ventilation system activation (Our case, there is no detection system installed in the parking, since it is fully sprinklered)
4. is there any different conditions for the time permitted for clearing the smoke obstruction
5. Do we need to test the smoke in single location / multiple locations at time
