Project Summary –
A fully designed and installed ventilation system, driven by an automated smart control panel, allowed our client to enhance worker comfort and wellbeing in their production environment.
Client Requirements –
Our client produces a range of foam sheets, the processes for which generate high levels of heat within the production environment. Worker welfare was a priority for the client and it was important that a solution was found to deal with the heat outputs and potential elevated temperatures within the factory.
Client Actions –
Our expert ventilation team were tasked with the full design and installation of an appropriate ventilation system.
The solution included –
A system of 10 roof extraction fans to remove the heat generated from the extruders
A larger, fresh air fan with accompanying duct system, that would work to provide fresh air for the factory – with a focus on people-occupied working areas of the internal environment
A smart control panel that allows for system automation – dependent on factors such as inside temperature and external climate changes
Our team worked within strict space & time limitations and coordinated with various other services to ensure that the system was installed on time and to budget. Given the nature of the 24-hour factory environment, it was essential that we were able to work quickly and accurately, sometimes even during active production times with minimum disruption. As a result, all components were pre-assembled in the workshop to minimise the time to be spent on site.
Client Outcome –
The project is currently in commission stage and we are looking forward to continued positive feedback from the client throughout the initial use period and beyond.
