Smoke Stratification

Smoke Stratification occurs when a layer of warm air (a Stratus) collects at roof level.  As smoke from a fire low-energy fire rises, it reaches this thermal barrier and lacks the energy to rise further.  This causes the smoke to build up below the level of the stratus, creating a smoke plateau (see diagram below).

Stratification generally effects high-level buildings such as Atriums, Aircraft Hangers, Warehouses and Waste Management Facilities.  Click Here to view our recent website blog on Stratification.

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

    It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.
