Traditional Solution
Traditional smoke extract systems use separate dedicated fans and a damper system to remove smoke from the building. The smoke extraction fans are dedicated for smoke removal and are activated once the fire alarm system detects the presence of smoke or fire in the building.

Where CAV or VAV systems are present, the existing ductwork can be used to contain the smoke outside while smoke dampers close to prevent the contamination of other zones. Air handling unit fans are shut off and the smoke dampers can be opened or closed to channel the smoke-filled air to the outside.
