We helped pioneer the science of smoke control and have been a major contributor to the research on the behaviour of smoke and fires since the 1950s. We are able to apply our extensive expertise to develop tailor made solutions for our customers and all these years we have built an enviable track record.
Colt smoke control systems
Smoke and Heat Exhaust Ventilation Systems (SHEVS). Whether these are natural or powered, they remove smoke from the building. Inlet ventilators, dampers and ductwork are also often integrated into the scheme.
Smoke Containment Systems. These prevent the movement of smoke and heat from one area to another. They take the form either of physical barriers such as smoke curtains or fire curtains, or as pressure differential systems, also known as pressurisation systems.
Car Park Ventilation Systems. Induction (or jet) fans clear smoke from enclosed or underground car parks. These are often combined with fume ventilation to prevent the build-up of vehicle exhaust gases in normal day to day use of the car park. Louvres, dampers, and powered smoke extraction fans are also often integrated into the scheme.
“Smoke is the greatest threat in a fire. A fire can fill an area of 10,000m2 with smoke within minutes. 5 breaths are all it takes to lose consciousness. Effective smoke control saves lives”.
