In high-rise buildings, the stairs typically represent the sole means of egress during a fire. It is imperative for the exit stairs to be free of smoke. Most building codes require the fire stairwells in a high rise building to be pressurized to keep the stairs clear of smoke. This should happen while operating at a low enough pressure that an average person can open the doors exit the stairwell on their way to safety. This 4 hours course provides a comprehensive overview of stairwell pressurization systems.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
