Stanshawe Court, a residential block in Reading, has benefitted from the work of D+H UK on their roof vent and natural smoke ventilation system.
Strong winds had damaged the original roof vent, meaning it needed to be replaced.
The previous natural smoke ventilation system had not been maintained and therefore had failed.
D+H UK supplied all external access for safe roof working before removing and replacing the broken roof vent with an EN certified dome vent.
D+H UK then completely replaced the failed natural smoke ventilation system, resulting in a compliant EN 12101-2 certified solution.
The EN 12101-2 certified F100 dome vent is ideal for smoke ventilation applications. The GRP upstands are insulated with polyurethane hard foam and feature a weatherproof sealing system. The wind deflectors will prevent smoke from re-entering the building.
In case of fire, the dome vent will open automatically, drawing the smoke up and out. This will keep escape routes free for evacuation and provide access for the emergency services.
