SE Controls provided a total solution, from initial concept through to installation and hand over. The resulting state-of-the-art installation consisted of a series of 24v DC chain and linear actuators powered by the company’s innovative multi zone OSO control system. To automatically operate windows in the event of a fire, the company used its much proven SECO 24 40 600mm chain actuators. Fire rated doors operated by SEControls’ SELA 24 S linear actuators were installed onto internal smoke shafts to facilitate smoke ventilation to the corridors.
Project specific indicator control panels were installed in each residential and office block to show the system status floor by floor. Supported with a battery backup providing integrity for up to 42 hours in the event of a mains power loss, the OSO system also includes an override allowing fire fighters to open and close the windows within the building.
