HVAC Fire Life Safety Level 2   (ANSI)

The management of fire and smoke has served as the underpinning of building codes in the U.S. for more than 100 years. Nearly all buildings intended for human occupancy are required by today’s codes to be designed with an assurance that, over the life of the building, occupants will be reasonably safe from fire and smoke. Building codes require the design of an integrated system of features such as walls, floors, ceiling, and structural members, as well as specific fire and smoke protection components, products, devices and systems that reinforce and cover for one another in case of the failure of any one in the event of a fire. The overall intended building performance and the depth of the designed redundancy is based on the objectives of the building owner and the occupants.
