D+H UK installs life-saving smoke ventilation systems

D+H UK installed a life-saving smoke ventilation systems as part of the regeneration of high rise blocks in Eccles, Manchester.

D+H UK provided systems for 2 blocks at Southway and Charter. The high rise improvement programme by City West Housing Trust, member of ForViva, is working with customers to deliver a cost effective, energy efficient solution for the future.

The new smoke vent louvre system was installed to enable a more efficient ventilation system to be introduced. This EN-Certified smoke louvre provides a more effective smoke ventilation system whilst proving a similar and safer natural ventilation solution, especially at high level. This is a practicable solution to meet the combined requirements of Approved Document B and Approved Document K.

A total of 64 x Fieger Louvre vents, tested in accordance with EN 12101-2, were installed to provide dual-purpose natural and smoke ventilation.

The vents are operated by D+H LDF 100-60 24V DC drives, programmed for anti-trapping. These were connected to the D+H UK control system, based on individual RZN 4503T control panels.
