Our role in this development was to automate the high level windows in common areas to create a smoke ventilation system.
Within seconds of smoke being detected our motors are engaged through the Fire Indicator Panel. The opening of these windows allows both the immediate escape of any built up smoke and other harmful gases and provides the continued means of diversion for these dangerous elements.
The purging of these gases increases visibility for patrons and the time that they have to escape in the case of a fire emergency. The increased visibility also allows emergency personnel a greater chance of identifying and dealing with the issue and bringing the situation under control in a timely manner.
To ensure the ongoing functionality of the motors, should the mains power fail, also installed at Portside Wharf is a battery back-up system.
