A modern office development in Shenley Wood, Milton Keynes. Individual offices are arranged around two courtyards and an impressive central atrium.
Dyer supplied and installed window drives and controls for a natural smoke ventilation system within the building’s large atrium.
20 Schuco AWS 57 RO bottom hung outward opening roof vents were installed above the atrium. Dyer supplied and installed a ZA 85/1000 high speed linear drive to each roof vent. In the event of a fire, all vents power open fully within 60 seconds, and provide the required aerodynamic free area to ventilate the atrium of smoke. Dyer provided CE marking and a Declaration of Performance for the vents to comply with EN12101-2.
A CPS-M natural smoke ventilation control panel (with built in battery back up) operates the vents.
The CPS-M operates all 20 vents simultaneously in the event of fire. Dyer’s system includes a single zone break glass unit to manually trigger, test, reset and monitor the system.
Dyer have an ongoing maintenance contract with Shenley Pavilions. Dyer’s regular servicing prolongs the life of the system by ensuring that early signs of faults/wear and tear are actioned where necessary.
