Maintaining a light and airy environment in education buildings
In most shipping terminals, airports, rail, bus, underground stations and tunnels there is a requirement for ventilation systems both for safety and comfort.

For tunnels and underground / metro stations
Below ground, whether in tunnels or underground/metro stations, such systems can enable:
a clear means of escape if there is a fire
a clear view of the fire to assist fire-fighters
smoke clearance both during and after a fire, in order to limit smoke temperatures and structural damage and inhibit smoke spread.
For above-ground transport infrastructure / transportation buildings
Above ground, since transport infrastructure buildings are generally large and at many times of the day are filled with people, due consideration needs to be taken of the need to safeguard the general public from the effects of fire and also to keep people comfortable.
For both below and above ground transport infrastructure and transportation buildings, Colt offers scheme design, including CFD, and a comprehensive range of ventilation, smoke containment and stairwell pressurisation products and systems, including their associated controls and monitoring.
