I know some sort of upgraded smoke control system was installed, I learnt from my high rise course about cause and effect tests, its ok setting of a single smoke head etc to see how it works, however in a real situation when various smoke heads in different floors/zones activate all at once, what happens then?bernicarey wrote: ↑Thu Jun 22, 2017 10:16 amYes, the Media are hyping up people's fears and concerns, as they usually do, whilst not asking the 'unpalatable' questions.
Most people are rightly assuming that there was a problem with the external cladding wrapping the building in fire, but nobody is daring to enquire as to why the internal central staircase was so affected so quickly. There are a number of things going through my head as to what caused the rapid breach of compartmentalisation at what appears to multiple places.
The last thing that was needed was people staying behind trying to save their flat with a 9Ltr water.
With the smoke shaft and lift shaft possibly the chimney stack effect/piston effect could assist in spread of fire/smoke? and of course wind.
