Maintaining a light and airy environment in education buildings

Students concentrate and perform better in buildings with good natural ventilation and controlled natural daylight – and they need to be protected in case of fire: with Colt they can have it all.

Colt natural ventilation, HVAC and shading systems are good for education buildings

We can help you create a comfortable and healthy teaching environment.

We can supply natural ventilators with automatic controls, or hybrid systems integrating natural ventilation and mechanical heating and cooling systems. We can support the design process from an early stage, developing CFD simulations to show how the proposed solution will work.

Most Colt natural ventilators are dual purpose, providing both natural ventilation and smoke control. 

Making the best of natural daylight

To further reduce overheating and improve the quality of light, we can also design and install solar shading that will reduce glare and reduce summer time heat loads.

Protecting education buildings from the effects of fire

Colt smoke control ventilation and smoke containment systems can enable:

  • a clear means of escape in a fire
  • a clear view of the fire to assist fire-fighters
  • smoke to be cleared during and after a fire, in order to limit smoke temperatures and structural damage.
  • reduced likelihood of damage or loss to buildings and their contents. 

Designing cost efficiency into your education building

Our integrated approach will ensure that the solution developed for your education building delivers most effectively the internal conditions that meet your requirements while minimising initial and running costs through lower energy consumption and maintenance expenses.

The benefits of working with Colt include:

  • We offer a pre-order design service
  • We offer CFD modelling to optimise the design and to prove compliance with legislation
  • We design our schemes to ensure that day-to-day consumption of energy is minimised
  • Our equipment is third party tested and approved
  • We offer an integrated approach as the partner that is responsible for design, delivery, installation, commissioning and good performance of the entire scheme.
  • We have a broad experience and know-how built on a global track record spanning many decades.
