AIRAH has released two new Design Application (DA) manuals to provide vital knowledge about HVAC systems in buildings and fire safety.

The DA manuals are titled DA05 Guide to Fire and Smoke Control in Buildings using AS 1668 Part 1, and DA06 Guide to Fire, Smoke and Air Dampers using AS 1682 Parts 1 & 2.

DA05 promotes the correct design, installation, and commissioning of smoke control systems within the HVAC industry. Smoke control systems are a vital to minimise the hazard from smoke, and the manual is a guide to using and applying AS 1668.1-2015 The use of ventilation and air conditioning in buildings. Part 1: Fire and smoke control in buildings.

DA06 covers the correct selection, installation, and commissioning of fire, smoke, and (smoke exhaust) air dampers within the HVAC industry and associated trades. It aims to assist and improve the legal compliance of damper applications by providing technical guidance, and steps through the entire damper life-cycle.

AIRAH’s Education and Technical Services Manager, Brendan Pejkovic, says the two newest DA manuals will be a valuable resource for the industry.

“DA05 and DA06 focus on AS1668.1 and AS1682 Parts 1 and 2 and how mechanical design engineers should apply these Standards,” he says. “The manuals complement AIRAH’s Fire and Smoke Control training course, which has been delivered to industry for over 20 years.”
