Colt smoke control systems: creating a safe environment
The full benefits of a well-designed Colt system
Colt pioneered the science of smoke control and has been a major contributor to the research on the behaviour of smoke and fires since the 1950s.
You can count on Colt to provide a well-designed smoke control system that:
protects the building’s occupiers
keeps escape and access routes free from smoke
facilitates fire-fighting operations
delays or prevents flashover, reducing the risk of the fire developing further
protects the contents of the building
reduces risk of damage to the building.

The components of smoke control systems
Smoke control systems can include powered and natural
smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems, smoke containment, car park ventilation, shaft ventilation and pressurisation systems.
Components (smoke ventilators, smoke barriers, smoke ducts, smoke dampers, inlet ventilators, etc.) should comply with the BS EN 12101 series of standards where these apply. Download our
EN 12101 test parameters and results datasheet for more information.
