We have been informed we need to improve our ducting within residents bathrooms as they could spread smoke in the event of fire within a residents room. The building (care home) was built 2001 taking into account BS 5588 & 9999, it has fire dampners fitted (70c) within the ducting, ventilation shuts down upon fire alarm activition andif a phased evacutaion procedure in place. There is a large double glazed window to each room and the ducting is fire retardent (metal). Taking into account the natural vetilation within each room, window, also metal ducting i believe this improvment is not required, but thanked the consultant for his advice and made relevant personnal aware. any thoughs?
