Smoke and heat control systems
Part 13: Pressure differential systems (PDS) — Design and calculation
methods, installation, acceptance testing, routine testing and maintenance

National foreword
This British Standard is the UK implementation of EN 12101‑13:2022.
Together with BS EN 12101‑6:2022, it supersedes BS EN 12101‑6:2005,
which is withdrawn.
The UK participation in its preparation was entrusted to Technical
Committee FSH/25, Smoke, heat control systems and components.
A list of organizations represented on this committee can be obtained on
request to its committee manager.
The UK committee emphasizes that BS EN 12101‑13:2022 deals with
design of systems to be used in specific applications described
therein. Both BS EN 12101‑6:2022 and BS EN 12101‑13:2022 should
be considered in their entirety and only for the types of applications
described. No clauses, designs or values in whole or in part should be
used in isolation or as justification for system designs that are outside
the scope of these standards.
This standard is not intended for corridor/lobby extract or Mechanical
Smoke Ventilation Systems (MSVS). These systems generally create a
lower pressure in protected spaces, such as lobbies and corridors and
are outside of the scope of this standard.
It is the opinion of the UK committee that BS EN 12101‑6:2005 contained
useful guidance for applications commonly used in the UK. National
Annex NA identifies these applications along with explanations of how
BS EN 12101‑13:2022 can be used to achieve similar design intent. While
National Annex NA is informative, the UK committee believes UK users
would benefit from referring to the Annex.
