In accordance with the Fire Strategy report, Dyer installed mechanical and natural smoke control systems to assist with means of escape and firefighting operations in emergency fire conditions.
- A mechanical smoke extract system serves the common corridors due to extended travel distance to the stairwell. The extract/supply grilles are painted gloss black to compliment the hotel decor.
- Certified smoke vents provide natural smoke ventilation within the stairwell and lobby.
- 28 high level certified smoke vents form part of the atrium smoke clearance system. Inlet air provided via automatic openings at ground floor level.
- A motorised fire smoke damper system comprising 192 dampers serves rooms on all levels. The dampers automatically close in the event of a fire to prevent smoke/fire spreading between compartments.
Dyer service and maintain these systems, ensuring their continued reliability.
