Ventilation for commercial and retail industries and applications
Our commercial ventilation can provide the required number of air exchanges, remove solar, electrical and occupancy heat gain, and prevent the build-up of carbon dioxide, odours, dust, bacteria, solvents and fumes.
Commercial Retail Applications
With high ceilings, large open spaces and refrigeration aisles, it can be difficult to both heat and ventilate supermarkets. It is important to consider the optimum temperature for both customers and food storage within the store.
Shopping Centres are purpose-built centres incorporating many individual shop units, foot courts and warehouse type developments with fluctuating levels of occupancy that need to be considered.
Individual Shop Units
The needs of individual shop units will vary greatly; some with clothing storage and changing rooms, others with household goods etc. requiring a tailored ventilation system.
Retail park units often have high ceilings, open spaces, storage units and parking facilities, all of which affect the HVAC system choices.
Whether a brand new building, or a traditional listed building, banks require a ventilation and heating system that can cope with very low and very high occupancy levels.
Whether a launderette, or laundry area in a hotel, residential care home, industrial or health care facility, laundry is an essential function, not only contributing to comfort and aesthetics, but also assisting with infection control.
One of most important functions of the HVAC system within a petrol station is removing fumes and pollutants from the forecourt and ensuring there is sufficient emergency extract units.
Large Format Retail Stores
The biggest challenge in large format retail stores is combating over-ventilation as the heated air rises the the ceiling. An efficient destratification product is needed to combat this.
Ventilation in car showrooms must limit the exposure of workers to exhaust gases, in particular, Carbon Monoxide and Nitrous Oxide, therefore mechanical ventilation design is of paramount importance.
Providing good ventilation in a dry cleaning environment, will assist worker exposure to PERC (perchlorethylene) and ensure thermal comfort.

General ventilation systems are usually not adequate for keeping toxic substances at “safe” concentrations. Local exhaust ventilation is far more effective as it captures and removes contaminants at their source before they reach the air that you breath.
The ventilation of food premises is necessary in order to produce reasonable working conditions and to reduce levels of humidity and temperature, which will assist the rapid growth of bacteria.
