IT'S WHAT WE DO - MECHANICAL VENTILATION
Mechanical ventilation services often form part of a buildings fire safety system, or perform an important function in maintaining air quality to areas such as carparks, laundries, toilets etc. FIRECHEX services a range of mechanical ventilation systems, electric motors, fire dampers, stairway pressurisation and related equipment.
FIRECHEX can certify mechanical ventilation where it forms part of the fire system. We can inspect or replace dampers and service electric motors as part of a regular fire service.
Mechanical ventilation systems need to comply with Australian Standard (AS) 1668.2-2012 (the use of ventilation and air conditioning in buildings).
MOTORS & FANS
Our licensed electricians specialise in servicing all types of electric motors, and have extensive experience with a large range of motors and systems.
The inspection and maintenance of fire dampers is a mandatory requirement of the annual fire safety maintenance and certification schedule. The maintenance of fire and smoke dampers is documented in AS1851, Section 18.
The Building Code of Australia (Smoke Hazard Management, clause E2) requires a stairwell pressurisation system to ensure the occupants of a building in a fire emergency have sufficient time to evacuate the building before the stairwell becomes untenable. A stairwell pressurisation system must be installed in accordance with AS/NZS 1668.1:1998 and maintained as part of the annual fire maintenance and certification schedule in accordance with AS 1851-2005.
CAR PARK EXHAUST SYSTEMS
The correct operation of the car park exhaust system(s) is not only an important safety feature, but also needs to operate correctly in conjunction with the fire safety system.
Big enough to protect you,
