Window Actuators-Common Faults Caused by Incorrect Selection or Installation

Most electric actuators used in facade or window automation systems generally speaking have a 12 month or 10,000 to 20,000 cycle warranty, or which ever of the two occurs first. The 12 month period should always lapse first. Ok, there are exceptions, even finely engineered machines fail sometimes. Some or most of the problems when … Continue reading Window Actuators-Common Faults Caused by Incorrect Selection or Installation

Integration of Window Automation with Home Automation Systems

  The introduction of home automation systems in to existing or new build homes are increasing globally year on year. In a recent report "Home Automation System Market by Protocol and Technology (Network and Wireless), Product (Lighting, Security and Access Control, HVAC and Entertainment Control), Software and Algorithm (Behavioral and Proactive), and Geography - Global Forecast to … Continue reading Integration of Window Automation with Home Automation Systems

Types of electric actuators, controls and their uses in the facade/window automation Sector

Within the facade/window automation sector there are 3 main types of electric actuators- Chain drive actuators Linear drive actuators Rotary drive actuators Within these three actuator categories there are countless variables and their uses vary greatly. Chain drive actuators are available in 24v DC and 230v AC (main powered). There are 12v DC chain drive … Continue reading Types of electric actuators, controls and their uses in the facade/window automation Sector

Industrial Roof Ventilation-Passive Ventilation

Industrial roof ventilators for passive ventilation come in many different shapes and sizes and are suitable for most factory, warehouse and maintenance facilities to name a few. A traditional passive roof ventilator sits on the ridge of a roof as this is the highest point of the roof and the optimal position to exhaust the … Continue reading Industrial Roof Ventilation-Passive Ventilation

Optimise Air Quality in Buildings

Natural Ventilation in Buildings can be created by the use of automated facade/window opening. Internal air quality can be vastly improved, replacing stagnant air with fresh outdoor air, reducing the build up of CO2 while cooling down the fabric of the building at the same time. All creating a healthier and more productive working environment. … Continue reading Optimise Air Quality in Buildings

Passive Smoke Ventilation

Passive smoke ventilation allows the natural buoyancy of warm/hot air to free a building of deadly smoke build up. High level windows or vents in the facade or on the roof are opened upon activation by either independent smoke detectors, Fire alarm system or manual activation. Hot smoke that is starting to rise and build … Continue reading Passive Smoke Ventilation

Natural Ventilation

  Passive Natural Ventilation is used to cool down the fabric of the building, which minimises the required running time of traditional mechanical HVAC systems, in turn reducing the buildings running costs. This can be achieved by the use of roof ventilators normally used in factory or warehouse facilities along with a source of inlet … Continue reading Natural Ventilation
