Smoke, heat and exhaust ventilation system for commercial premises

Published:  12 July, 2011

Naturvent wins ‘highly commended’ at the Product Excellence Awards for the Homebuilding and Renovation Show in the UK.

Ash Fire Management’s invention is based on proven systems installed in commercial premises.

Naturvent has been tested at the Building Research Establishment and shown to “assist in maintaining visibility and reducing toxic gas concentrations in areas remote from the room of fire origin.”

‘Highly Commended’ at the Product Excellence Awards for this year’s Homebuilding and Renovating Show, this innovative product is compliant with Approved Document B and other current regulations and is adaptable to any dwelling no matter what the composite materials.

If a fire breaks out, Naturvent’s sensors will;

  • Raise the alarm
  • Open the vents in the roof’s fire proof shaft
  • Inform the local Fire and Rescue Service
  • Shut off all electronically controlled gas valves

The toxic gases, heat and smoke are the most destructive elements of the fire and the Naturvent system expels these from the dwelling. This gives two massive benefits:

  • Occupants remain conscious and so can execute their fire escape plan.
  • The fire fighters working environment is much clearer and safer.

Ideally suited to large houses of multiple occupancy, the system is favourably priced compared to, for example, water sprinkler systems and is easily installed with little disruption.
