CES 1 - Smoke Protection at the Elevator Hoistway

Length: 1 Hour

Credits: 1 Learning Unit, Health Safety Welfare (HSW)

The course will provide you a better understanding of how smoke migrates in multi-story building fires and how building codes in the United States have evolved to address this danger. Throughout this course we will illustrate the physics of vertical smoke migration in mid- and high-rise building fires and the hazards this presents for building occupants. The instructor will discuss how building codes seek to protect building occupants from this hazard and review various methods that have been developed to meet these code requirements to limit vertical smoke migration.
