Leftbank Apartments

SE Controls, the UK’s leading expert in control systems for smoke and natural ventilation, has been chosen to provide a smoke ventilation system at Manchester’s new flagship residential complex Leftbank. Part of the 22-acre Spinningfields urban redevelopment programme, the plush Leftbank Apartment complex comprises a series of 16 storey, high specification accommodation blocks. The sweeping urban development is designed to provide easy access to Manchester’s retail and leisure amenities, whilst offering views over the River Irwell.

SE Controls’ brief was to design and install a smoke ventilation system that would automatically open windows and smoke shaft doors in the event of fire, and efficiently disperse smoke from the building to ensure maximum safety for residents – housed in both the main complex and link bridge feature. SE Controls’ system consisted of a series of corridor smoke vents and AOV (Automatic Opening Vent) windows, powered by the company’s innovative multi zone OSO control system. The company used their much proven SELA 24 S linear actuators and SECO 24 40 chain actuators to operate the AOVs.
