Modular Smoke Control
Modular Smoke Control Systems
Save time and optimise efficiency with our standardised approach to smoke control.
Based on the principle that the lobby, car park, and stairwell areas of most higher-risk residential buildings (HRRBs) are somewhat similar, Group SCS has engineered a range of modular standardised systems. Our modular smoke control solutions can be self-selected and specified entirely online with the help of our System Selector Tool and the supporting documentation in the Group SCS Modular Area.

A golden thread of system information
All the information required to select and specify our systems is available for download in the Group SCS Modular Area. This includes system specifications, technical submittals, schematics, budget summaries and detailed information about all system components.
Access to the Modular area is granted free of charge to qualifying developers, architects, consultants, and contractors who are interested in implementing our Modular Solutions.
The Benefits of the Modular Range
A Modular System timeline
Smoke control is typically procured by mechanical and electrical contractors on a design, supply and install basis from a smoke control specialist. For complex buildings with unique structure, employing a specialist is the safest route. However, the majority of higher risk residential buildings have similar smoke control requirements and are suitable for a modular standardised approach to fire safety.
A typical bespoke shaft system can take up to 17 weeks from design through to commissioning. The Group SCS modular approach can eliminate lengthy design and client approval processes and cut down the time required to deliver a project substantially, as displayed by the timeline.
