Smoke & Natural Ventilation Systems

Vertically mounted natural and smoke ETFE vents were used throughout the 2 atria at the new hospital.  Using 1200mm synchronized rack & pinion actuators, Dyer was able to offer in excess of 80 degree opening vents, thereby meeting the strenuous ventilation requirements met in the project.


Full incrementally opening control was provided by our smoke and natural ventilation control panels, which linked directly to the fire alarm and the BMS.
