Ventilation duct tightness tests — we do everything to offer even better solutions

SMAY’s offer includes the best commercially available devices. This is possible, inter alia, thanks to a number of thorough tests that we perform both in authorized units and in our own laboratory. For years we have been investing in stations that allow us to verify and develop features of our products. We carry out ventilation tests in order to check whether it operates properly, and whether its parameters connected with the air volume meet Polish standards.


See how we carried out the smoke tests in a hotel. The ZODIC system in action

The Ibis Santorini hotel is located near the picturesque Zalew Nowohucki Reservoir. The surrounding area is perfect for hiking and spending quality time outdoors. Inside the building there are two staircases, located at five separate floors. They include 63 rooms. Its convenient location makes it possible to quickly reach the Kraków city centre. It’s great for the visitors.


Design Solutions for Overpressure Systems. Conformity to PN-EN 12101-6, Part II

In the last article, we discussed the B class pressure differential system and the airflow rate criterion for the air supplied to a zone engulfed in fire, which is 2 m/s in case of the gravitational exhaust ventilation. Now, we will focus on a solution based on the mechanical exhaust ventilation, the purpose of which is extracting hot smoke from a zone engulfed in fire.


Healthy idea, i.e. what were the origins of ventilation. Brief history of ventilation – part II

In the previous article we explained how the problem of unpleasant smells and the growing demand for ventilation was handled by the Egyptians, Romans and then by the Englishmen. Today, let's take a few steps forward and see who had a significant impact on the development of ventilation and what it had to go through to become what we know today.

BREEAM certification and green benefits from SMAY

V-Offices building is being constructed in Krakow. This project achieved a BREEAM Outstanding rating at design stage with a score of 90.57 %, to date the highest BREEAM certified score in Poland and Central and Eastern Europe. Completion date is planned for the first quarter of 2019.


People must be able to find safe escape route in case of a fire

Our pressurization systems by default are subject to automatic 24-h tests of key components. Such tests are carried out without any manual intervention. Such functionality allows to reduce necessity for periodic inspections e.g. weekly, monthly etc. Scope and frequency of maintenance works are limited to the yearly inspection when all measurements are taken to confirm proper functioning of the system.


How air affects human comfort in a building

People spend approx. 90% of their time indoors, i.e. in an artificially created climate. Therefore, buildings and their technical equipment should be designed and erected so that to ensure favourable thermal conditions for their inhabitants.


iSWAY in the heat of implementation

We are experts in creating safe escape routes. Our solutions work perfectly not only in new multi-storey buildings, but also in older buildings under renovation, with installations being adapted to new, more strict safety requirements.

Range of Impact of Actual Fires on Staircases

The aim of the presentation was to present the results of research of a fire development in a multi-storey residential building, without corridors. The research was carried out on a specially created test stand in a 9-storey building. The research space included an apartment and an adjacent staircase. The research included several fire tests.


Fire ventilation systems for enclosed garages

Limited space for investment has made constructing underground garages as part of buildings increasingly popular in our country. In particular, this is true for large city centres, where the number of parking spots in the streets is smaller than the number of drivers looking for a parking space. As a result underground and multi-storey car parks are becoming more popular.
