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

New Build Dwelling High level Window Automation

We were approached by Bespoke developer Woodford Homes to provide a solution for opening high level windows in a new build home they were constructing. Woodford Homes initial thoughts were to have manual winding gear to operate the windows, BlueSquared costed both manual winding and also Electric chain actuator systems as a comparison. The Electric … Continue reading New Build Dwelling High level Window Automation

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
