CASE STUDY

The Wharf, Droylsden Marina – Mechanical smoke ventilation for canal side apartments

Dyer Environmental Controls Ltd supplied and installed a mechanical smoke ventilation solution in a Watkin Jones Homes development. The Wharf, set alongside Droylsden Marina offers a collection of modern 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments.

System

The apartment block has 6 levels connected by a central staircase.
EN certified dampers are fitted to each floor along with local smoke detection.
The fans are placed within the smoke shaft with an opensky louvre situated above them, providing weather protection. A control panel operates the duty and standby fans.
Two AOV smoke dome vents are in place to provide smoke clearance, one located on level 6 and the other on the central staircase.

In Case of Fire

If smoke is detected in the building the system will open the corridor AOV, smoke shaft damper, head of stair vent and opensky louvre. The duty fan will run to extract any smoke located in the corridor. In the event of a power failure the standby fan will engage.

Dyer’s fully automatic system allows safe escape for residents and clear access for firefighters.
