An actuator is a device which enables a window to be opened and closed automatically or by a rotary handle.
Window automation is used predominately for the purpose of natural ventilation and smoke ventilation.
Natural smoke ventilation uses the inherent buoyancy of hot smoke to rise above escape routes thus leaving the occupants with a greater chance of making a safe escape.
Automatic opening inlet vents / windows at low level maintain the smoke reservoir at a safe level above head height to increase occupant’s visibility during escape.
Automated Systems Maintenance is one of Britain’s leading installers of emergency lighting in workplaces and public buildings.
In the event of a power failure, the emergency lighting central battery system switches over to battery power.
Emergency lighting is part of the fire safety provision of a building and cannot be ignored: as noted by the Industry Committee for Emergency Lighting (ICEL), which is the foremost UK authority on emergency lighting and provides third party accreditation for components and products for emergency light fittings under the auspices of the Lighting Industry Association (LIA):
“The legal requirement is that non-domestic buildings must be safe at all times, even if mains power failure occurs. Therefore, nearly all such buildings must have emergency lighting fitted”.
If a fire started now, do you have the correct fire extinguisher to put it out safely? Do you have a schedule for fire extinguisher servicing? If you tried to escape the building, are you sure that your extinguishers are positioned on the route to safety?
Selecting and siting the appropriate type of fire extinguishers to protect your premises is vitally important. No different from ensuring you have appropriate insurance cover – in fact, not having the correct fire-fighting equipment in place is just like driving without insurance, both ethically and legally.
Automated Systems Maintenance take care of this important role. You will have the peace of mind that you have selected a company that only employs qualified technicians to undertake the installation and service work.
