The Safety Way pressure differential system is a guarantee of safe evacuation in the event of a fire. Why is it worth installing it in your investment? An innovative fire protection solution, user comfort, a sense of certainty and security… There are plenty of reasons, we list the most important ones.

Safe evacuation with differential pressure system

Imagine that in the midst of daily duties you suddenly hear a fire alarm going off. At first, the danger doesn’t even feel real, but you quickly see your colleagues running down the corridors… Yes – it’s not a drill. The building really is on fire.

So you are going to the stairwell since the elevators have been blocked. The crowd of people is flowing in the same direction, but the visibility in the corridor is deteriorating. As you’re running, you start to lose your breath, and the smoke doesn’t help in your escape. Are you going to survive? Will everyone manage to get out of the burning building?

And what if the system fails? The corridor and the stairwell will soon be filled with smoke to the extent you can’t breathe and visibility is greatly impaired. What if the system is poorly designed and the fire escape door won’t open?

Dear investor, designer, engineer – you don’t want to end up like this. That’s why it is so important we cooperate to create safe skyscrapers from which we can always escape.

Why most high-rise buildings should be protected with a patented pressure differential system: the Safety Way

Smoke control systems generate a pressure difference between the escape route and the area of the fire. As a result, the protected area remains smoke-free. That is what can save the life of a person escaping from the fire (your own life or one of the building’s occupants).

Individual approach to a specific object

The proper planning of such infrastructure requires accurate identification and analysis of the components that affect the pressure distribution within the protected areas and the flow of air mixed with smoke in the facility. As the pioneers of pressure differential systems, we closely examine your building to tailor our solutions to both regulations and people!

What affects the effectiveness of a differential pressure system?

The greatest challenge is posed by phenomena such as the stack effect, convection and expansion, flow resistances, and the effect of wind on the building’s structure. All of these factors directly impact the pressure in the stairwell, which in turn influences the effectiveness of the pressure differential system, particularly in multi-story buildings.

So how does the Safety Way pressure differential system actually work?

The iSWAY-FC® controls pressure differential in smoke and heat extraction systems. Using this cutting-edge technology, we guarantee optimal performance and rapid response in critical situations.

Our system uses an advanced predictive algorithm that extremely quickly adjusts the amount of supplied air. There is no risk of oscillation, even if this amount changes very suddenly. Our system is under constant monitoring, and in addition, each iSWAY device does a self-test every 24 hours to further verify its operational readiness.

Pressure differentiation system in high-rise buildings

Safety Way adapts dynamically to the changing situation in your facility. Smart communication among the system components guarantees real-time optimization. To meet the highest standards, the P-MAC(F) sensor constantly measures the static pressure difference between the protected area and the reference point, which ensures the top level of security. Thanks to its ability to counteract the stack effect, the Safety Way is also perfect for high-rise buildings. Therefore, we are able to ensure the highest level of protection during evacuation in case of fire – regardless of the actual height of the building and weather conditions.

Benefits of the pressure differential system

What are the benefits of the SafetyWay pressure differential system from SMAY? Much depends on your specific needs. Other aspects of the system’s operation will be taken into account by the designer of sanitary installations or a fire safety expert, and something else will be paid attention to by the investor or installer. Both the specificity of the system operation, as well as assembly or operation are the reasons why it is worth implementing the Safety Way in the facility.
