Smoke Control 201 (UL Compliance)

Space Age Electronics Blog

Last November’s blog not only introduced the high level concepts of Smoke Control Systems vs. Smoke Management Systems, but also defined the difference between the two and how the systems are classified. If you didn’t get a chance to check it out, please do. It’s chock full of information that can help even the most knowledgeable system designers.

This month we are going to focus on code compliance and what it means to have a true UL 864 complaint smoke control system.

First, let’s define the various codes and standards that dictate when a smoke control system is required, where it’s required, how it’s installed, and what components to use.

The Full Worm Moon

In March, the temperature typically started to warm up. The ground begins to thaw and earthworms begin to appear ; it’s easy to see how native Americans got the name for this full moon. It’s this time of year when the crows begin to appear as well, which is why another popular name for the March full moon is the full Crow Moon. This is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins. To the European settlers, this moon was also known as the the Lenten Moonand was considered to be the last full moon of winter.

#FullMoonEngageMe Social Media Event N°11 Schedule

The event will start on Tuesday the 3rd of March 2015 at 19:00 UTC and will last untilMonday the 9th in HERE.

Eav Daily Tips

When looking around I see a lot of great WordPress blogs, who are self hosted and self managed offcourse.

Most of this WordPress sites are not connected well as an WP Network on Empire Avenue, so their activity and engagement will never show up, even when the blog is connected to EA.  Their EA network score will stay on 1.

Also the avg div/share they pay daily to their Shareholders regarding the WP Network is Zero.
