Car Parks

When it comes to car park ventilation, safety is a matter of adequate ventilation.

Multi Storey Car Park

Ventilation Solution For Car Parks

Despite the fact that modern cars are fitted with catalytic converters, vehicles often still produce a surprising amount of harmful pollutants. Our ventilation systems remove combustible gasses, fuel spill vapours and uncombusted fuel particles to ensure a safe environment. One of the biggest hazards in the event of a car park fire is smoke inhalation. Our smoke-rated control systems provide a flexible directional flow to respond to any fire location – containing, channelling and removing the smoke to facilitate safe evacuation and more efficient firefighting access.

Applications

Car Park Airflow Under Fire Conditions

Jet Fan Ventilation 

Impulse systems are used to control and remove pollutants, such as carbon monoxide on a day-to-day basis, all whilst ensuring that in an emergency situation smoke is removed quickly and efficiently - aiding in the safe evacuation of occupants.

Jet Fan System - Stage 1

Example of Jet Fan System

Stage 1

In day-to-day operation the system runs in low speed, ensuring carbon monoxide and other contaminants are within acceptable limits. Control is via strategically placed detectors. If a fire starts in one of the vehicles and smoke spreads, the system starts.

Jet Fan System - Stage 2

Example of Jet Fan System

Stage 2

The smoke detection system will identify the situation, activate the fire alarm system and then switch to smoke mode.

Jet Fan System - Stage 3

Example of Jet Fan System

Stage 3

Smoke detectors throughout the car park identify the units which are located at the affected fire zone and increase their fan speed to maximum.

Jet Fan System - Stage 4

Example of Jet Fan System

Stage 4

The smoke is contained and directed towards the main exhaust unit where it can be safely extracted into the atmosphere. This minimises the spread of smoke within the car park, keeping large areas clear and enabling the area to be quickly and safely evacuated.

Induction Ventilation

Working much like impulse fans, induction systems used backward curved impellers suitable for high thrust applications with high ceilings. Units draw the air upwards, providing a more effective method of extracting the smoke than a standard jet or axial installation. Because of this increased power and efficiency, less units are required, resulting in a reduced project install and maintenance cost.
