Look around the building at the structures that you already have in place. Do you have windows that don’t open?
Should these windows open or are the designed not to open? Element Control Systems can look at your current windows and advise if they are suitable, require a sand and a coat of paint or need to be replaced with a ventilation window.
Do you have adequate ventilation indoors and outdoors? Element Control Systems can assess your natural ventilation and advise if it can be improved by installing vents at strategic locations. There are so many vents to suit many locations which include open sky vents, sky vents, PGV, Aero Ridge, and Slope Ventilator. These vents are available in Zincalume, Aluminium, and Colour bond; so there is a colour and finish to suit every building.
Does your building have adequate fire protection? Clause C3.4 of The Building Code of Australia (BCA) requires fire protection of openings in external walls when the walls are in close proximity to adjoining property boundaries. “Where protection is required, doorways, windows and other openings must be protected.”
Element Control Systems has fixed and operable fire windows that can be installed to ensure that your property is protected for up to 2 hours. By that time, a Fire Engine would have arrived and would have the fire under control.
