Enclosed car park and basement extract systems
Underground spaces present unique smoke control challenges. The proper working condition of impulse ventilation, impulse fans / jet fans and extraction systems is vital if these structures are to be considered fire safe. Smoke control allows for preservation of escape routes and smoke clearance and easier fire fighting, which can make all the difference if the building above is to be protected from the fire also.
Smoke and fire dampers
Smoke and fire dampers can make all the difference when it comes to controlling the flow of hazardous smoke in a fire situation, and the spread of the fire itself. Airvent ensures the mechanisms, which may not be called upon for years at a time, are in perfect working condition so that when called upon they can do what they're intended for saving lives. These include Smoke Curtains and Fire Curtains.
Staircore and lobby pressurisation systems
The correct working of a lobby pressurisation system is vital to ensure that, in a fire, escape routes are kept clear, fire fighters have safe access to tackle the fire, and that all doors are able to open safely. This is a complex system to which Airvent applies careful, multi-faceted maintenance works to meet regulations.
Retractable smoke curtains
The smooth operation of a retractable smoke curtain is vital. Although they may not be called upon for months or even years (if ever), if smoke curtains fail to deploy in a fire situation, they may allow hazardous smoke to gather and lower to ground level in tall structures, presenting significant health and escape route issues.
Natural smoke ventilation systems
Used for day-to-day natural comfort ventilation as much as they are for ventilating smoke from a fire. This means that proper ongoing maintenance is important for uninterrupted everyday use as much as it is for ensuring fire safety regulations are met.
Solar shading systems
These systems may not be subject to the same life safety regulations as some of the other products Airvent maintains, but our expertise and resources still apply. We are able to take on solar shading system maintenance as part of ongoing smoke control works.
Powered smoke extract systems
Airvent supplies a range of different powered and ducted smoke extraction systems, and our expertise also extends to their successful ongoing servicing. This involves cleaning, checking of component parts and ensuring the correct operation of systems as a whole. Our high standard of testing and service ensures compliance with building and H&S regulations.
The compressors must be fully functional at all times to ensure the correct operation of other aspects of the smoke control system, so regular maintenance and clearing is a fundamental requirement of any service package.
The control panel at the heart of a smoke control system is perhaps its most important aspect. Without its continued functionality, a building's smoke controls can be rendered useless, endangering lives and failing compliances. Airvent's technicians are highly skilled and experienced with all types of controls, in addition to its own Intelli-Vent product.
