    High Temperature Duct in accordance with EN12101. Steel does not prevent the transfer of heat and spread of fire; compliance is critical

    The starting point of any design is understanding the Clients requirement. In high temperature environments assessing the risks is fundamental, asking what can go wrong is imperative. The cheapest solution may provide the Client with a cost incentive, however, cost versus performance is a non-negotiable when kitchen canopy extraction ducts are burning. Smoke ventilation duct passing through common areas run the risk of failing at elevated temperatures. The talk will also investigate some overlooked principles which can result in unplanned and unwanted consequences in fire conditions.
