Factory Ventilation Systems

  • At 24oC productivity falls by 10%.
  • Above 24oC, a worker is 23% more likely to have an accident.
  • Regulation 6 of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 states: "effective and suitable provision shall be made to ensure that every enclosed workplace is ventilated by a sufficient quantity of fresh or purified air".

Therefore, it is essential to provide sufficient and appropriate ventilation in order to ensure a productive and safe working environment.

In order to evaluate the extent of the overheating and/or fume problem, we will carry out a free technical survey and extensive heat gain calculations. From this, we can gauge the correct amount of ventilation required to maintain comfort conditions.

In most situations, we will provide roof or wall extraction to remove the excess heat. However, it is also essential to ensure that any ventilation system is effectively balanced. Therefore, we will also usually look to provide a source of fresh, replacement air to help lower temperatures and increase air movement.

Optimair have many years of experience in the design, supply and installation of air conditioning, ventilation, heating and fume extraction systems for industry.

As we are not tied to any manufacturers, we can provide sensible, economic advice and cost-effective solutions.
