Ventilation Systems

Extraction Systems

Requirements for removing air from a building can arise for a number of reasons: internal and external heat gain, contamination from fume or oil mist, process or regulatory considerations.

Gradwood manufacture and install an extensive range of unitary commercial/industrial exhaust fans and have the in house design capability to provide bespoke extraction systems solutions to a large range of applications:

TYPE

  • Unitary powered exhaust equipment – 0.5 to 8.0m3/sec
  • Fixed louvre systems
  • Adjustable blade louvre systems
  • Point of use extraction
  • WC/canteen exhaust etc.
  • Apartment exhaust systems
  • Extract hoods

APPLICATIONS

  • Food industry
  • Manufacture & Service Industry
  • Retail
  • Office
  • Rail
  • Garage

Input Systems

Requirements for replacing air from a building arise generally from the need to replace extracted air in a controllable manner. In doing so the input air can aid the cooling process and/or prevent cold draughts in unwanted locations. Additionally, Building Regulations can require specific air supply rates for individuals in certain applications.

Gradwood manufacture and install an extensive range of unitary commercial/industrial input units and have the in house design capability to provide bespoke solutions to a large range of applications:

TYPE

  • Unitary powered exhaust equipment – 0.5 to 8.0m3/sec
  • Fixed louvre systems
  • Adjustable blade louvre systems
  • Filtered Replacement Air
  • Heat recovery office supply air
  • Heated make up air
  • Extract hoods

APPLICATIONS

  • Food industry
  • Manufacture & Service Industry
  • Retail
  • Office
  • Rail
  • Garage

Control Systems

To extract every last percentage of efficiency relies on a perfectly matched control system, that’s why at Gradwood we offer a range of control options.

Stand alone consoles offer time and temperature control at point of use and utilise remote internal and external sensors to optimise operating strategy.

Larger multi facetted services can benefit from centralised Energy Management Systems (EMS). These computer controlled multi-zone control systems can increase system efficiencies and user flexibility thus enabling reductions in fuel consumption of up to 25% over conventional controls.

TYPE

  • Stand Alone Time & Temperature Panels
  • Centralised Energy Management
  • Optimised
  • Compensated
  • Bespoke Integrated Heating & Ventilation Control Systems

Gradwood can design tailored solutions to suit your application. All systems can be configured to meet current ECA requirements, thus benefiting from the Government Enhanced Capital Allowance scheme.

Smoke Ventilation

A central part of a buildings fire defences and the major life-saving aid, smoke ventilation systems form a vital service in allowing smoke and fume to escape in a controlled manner and preventing smoke logging.

Gradwood can design tailored smoke ventilation solutions to suit your application. All systems can be configured to meet specific building and regulatory requirements.
APPLICATIONS

  • Shopping Centres
  • Warehouse
  • Sporting Stadium
  • Factory
  • Apartment blocks
