A Burning Success: Fläkt Woods’ Mobile Smoke Roadshow

Live fire demonstration by Fläkt Woods, in English

Leading manufacturer of ventilation products Fläkt Woods has completed its first UK Mobile Smoke Roadshow. The flagship event, which was held at the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster, attracted over one hundred professionals from the building services industry, as well as VIP guests Business Secretary Vince Cable MP and Sir Bob Russell MP.

During the event, delegates were shown a live fire demonstration to highlight the effectiveness of the latest range of smoke and fire dampers in commercial and residential applications.

Commenting on the Roadshow, Allan Hurdle, Managing Director, Fläkt Woods, said: “Having the opportunity to show visitors a live demonstration has really helped stress the importance and effectiveness of fire dampers in real life situations. It was great to have so many building services engineers as well as Members of Parliament supporting the event, and we’re sure they found it to be a valuable and interesting experience.”

In addition to the demonstration, Fläkt Woods ran three CIBSE accredited CPD presentations. The first focussed on reducing total building emissions and the use of high efficiency energy recovery, followed by a session examining the danger of smoke in buildings. The concluding presentation concentrated on CE and EN certificated smoke control products.

Products utilised in the Roadshow included Fläkt Woods’ ETPR-EI-1 and ETPR-EI-2 circular fire dampers. These are used as closing devices for preventing the spread of fire in ventilation ducts between compartments. Both models are supplied with a built-in electrical actuator and thermal trip, and are designed for installation in walls or intermediate floors in circular ducting. ETPR-EI-1 and ETPR-EI-2 are available in sizes from 100-630mm and are tested in accordance to EN 1366-2 and EN 13501-3.
