Smoke Ventilation Systems

Routine Maintenance & Repairs

Smoke Ventilation Systems are commonly installed in residential apartment blocks to keep escape and access routes free from smoke. Some smoke vent systems are operated manually by either a key switch or push button. Automatic opening vents (AOV) can be activated by a smoke detector that is either linked direct to smoke vent control system or is interfaced to a fire alarm system.

We have experience in maintaining a range of smoke vent systems. This service is often completed as part of our regular maintenance visits, reducing the number of planned visits and in turn reducing the overall annual maintenance costs for the site.

We are able to supply equipment from a number of manufacturers to ensure that the system is fully operational at all times. We stock a variety of replacement parts ranging from smoke vent control panels, fireman override switches, smoke detectors and smoke vent actuators.

Upgrade to an Open Protocol System – There are a number of buildings that are fitted with obsolete closed protocol smoke ventilation equipment and they are in need of a system upgrade. It can often be an expensive exercise to upgrade the existing equipment to the latest version. We have been able to successfully upgrade systems using open protocol equipment, offering substantial cost savings and also flexibility for the end user.

Car Park Smoke Ventilation Systems – car parks, loading bays and service yards require ventilation for the following objectives. Day to day ventilation is required to control the build-up of vehicle exhaust fumes when the area is in general use. Acceptable air quality is maintained by a system designed to move air around the area which removes exhaust gases and ensures that there are no stagnant air pockets. It is also used to remove smoke from a car park during and after a fire.

We are able to offer a full service and maintenance package of car park smoke ventilation systems.

Fire Safety Signage – our range of signs extends to smoke ventilation systems including smoke vent manual control signs, smoke vent shaft signs, automatic smoke vent signs and much more.
