In the majority of high-rise buildings, especially in GCC and middle-east regions, closed doors into the staircases are a risky area. That is why installing staircase pressurization systems are advised so that they prevent the smoke from leaking through closed doors. There are usually six types of systems used:
Class A system: usually used in areas used as means of escape. They are installed under the assumption that the building will not be evacuated unless it’s directly affected by fire and it’s safe for the residents to remain inside.
Class B system: used in areas of escape and fire-fighting. They are installed to reduce the possibility of smoke contamination during evacuation.
Class C system: used in areas of escape during immediate evacuation. All residents have to be evacuated during the fire drill.
Class D system: used in buildings where the occupants might be sleeping.
Class E system: used in buildings where evacuation is done in phases
Class F system: used in buildings to minimize the contamination of smoke while firefighters are evacuating the occupants
During a fire or smoke, as the occupants of the building will be evacuating via stairs, the said area should have more pressure than the rest of the building. This way, when they open the doors, due to high pressure in the stairwell pushes the smoke out into the floor and clears the space for people to evacuate without suffocation or visibility problems. This is the primary focus of having a stair pressurization system, no matter the building is high-rise or stand alone.
One of the main parts of a staircase pressurization system is a staircase pressurization fan (SPF). When a fire breaks out, these fans force clean air into the stairwell, preventing smoke from clogging the escape route. In high-rise buildings, the fans also help in pressurizing the stairwell. Stair pressurization fans are not turned on except when there’s smoke and usually, when the fire alarm detects smoke, the fans will be turned on automatically.
