English translation:heat/smoke extraction equipment
Explanation:
RWA
It stands for Rauch- und Wärmeabzugsanlagen (although that means that Anlage is repeated in your text)

Rauch- und Wärmeabzugsanlagen sind Vorrichtungen zum Öffnen oder Öffnen und Schließen von Fenstern, Lichtkuppeln, Rauchklappen u.ä.
Damit wird u.a. gewährleistet, dass die Flucht- und Rettungswege im Brandfall durch Entrauchen gesichert werden.
Je nach Ausührung kann die RWA-Anlage auch zur täglichen Be- und Entlüftung verwendet werden
