Colt Climate Control and HVAC systems: creating a healthy and productive internal climate

Our climate control and HVAC systems help create ideal internal conditions with comfortable temperature and humidity levels and allow the movement of fresh air. They harness the natural elements to create energy-efficient buildings.

The benefits of a good internal climate

  • Increased productivity resulting from a healthy and comfortable environment for the occupiers.
  • Improved functioning and lower maintenance costs for manufacturing processes, and production or IT equipment, resulting from operating in ideal conditions.
  • Longer shelf life and safeguarding of product quality, resulting from goods being able to be processed and stored in ideal conditions.

Why choose Colt?

We can provide a complete package of scheme design, manufacture, installation, commissioning and maintenance.

When you work with Colt, you can count on full peace of mind in every phase of the project and for the full life cycle of your system because our experts understand the engineering and architectural challenges of different kinds of buildings, as we:

  • Look at the complete picture: we know how a building works and have extensive in-house expertise in a broad range of technologies.
  • Design the most cost-effective, no-nonsense solution engineered to meet your needs and any prevailing regulations, relying on our in-house technical resources such as CAD and CFD.
  • Customise our products to fit the exact requirements of your project and, where necessary, have them specially tested at our R&D facility.
  • Supply our high quality products, manufactured under quality standards and third party tested to rigorous standards.
  • Install and commission your system: our experienced, professional project management teams will take care of everything.
  • Maintain and service your system to ensure it keeps working at its most efficient throughout its life cycle.
  • Train and advise through all phases of the process. We offer seminars and webinars.

Every building is different and a variety of factors affect its internal climate: location, orientation, the materials used in its construction, what processes are going on in the building, and what it is used for. All these factors influence its temperature, humidity, air movement, solar intensity, condensation, noise, and solar intensity. Our experts are able to design custom solutions that take all variables into account to create a comfortable and healthy environment, and over the years we have built an enviable track record.

Surveys and advice for successful refrubishing projects

When a building is refurbished, Colt is able to unlock considerable potential for improvements in energy performance, fire safety and appearance. Colt experts can carry out detailed surveys to identify the necessary adaptations and upgrades to optimise the system's effectiveness and performance.

Colt climate control systems for non-industrial buildings

For commercial and industrial buildings Colt offers solutions for natural day-to-day ventilation, with the optional benefit of smoke ventilation for non-industrial buildings.

Colt natural ventilation systems rely on automatically or manually opening and closing windows and/or rooflights, and can range from simple open/close switches to a fully integrated energy management system with carbon dioxide and temperature measuring, weather sensors and interfaces with building management systems.

Such systems provide a highly energy-efficient solution that requires a small initial investment to maintain a good internal climate with extremely low running and maintenance costs. They often have a dual function of smoke ventilation, thereby protecting the building should a fire break out.

Colt climate control systems for industrial buildings

For industrial buildings Colt offers solutions for natural day-to-day ventilation with the optional benefit of smoke ventilation, or hybrid natural and mechanical ventilation systems including evaporative cooling and heating.

The design approach depends on the use of the building. Colt operates in a wide variety of industries, providing tailor made climate control systems to meet the specific requirements of each.

For example, our systems for the food industry need to take account of the need for constant temperature and humidity levels to guarantee food safety.

Our natural ventilation systems are particularly well suited to larger buildings where there are manufacturing processes that produce relatively high levels of heat, such as in glass industry, foundries and power stations, but they are also found in other industries such as plastics and metal working. Infact, our natural ventilation systems can be found where all kinds of manufacturing and storage takes place, including in the food, engineering, chemicals, paper, and mining industries.

Our evaporative cooling systems are often employed in production or storage facilities where conventional air conditioning systems would not be cost-effective, and where natural ventilation cannot provide the required conditions. Read more about Colt industrial ventilation systems.
