/ Façade Engineering
The art and science of designing beautiful (and safe) buildings.
SE Controls loves architecture and we believe that form doesn’t need to suffer at the hand of function. Life safety systems are an integral element of constructing safe buildings and their primary function is to save lives, however, we appreciate that consideration should always be given to the aesthetics and the overall design of the building. For this reason, our team of experts will endeavour to help you realise your creative ambitions for your designs through façade engineering, without compromising the fire safety strategy.
A work of art is timeless and provides inspiration to millions of people, here are a select few examples of our more complex façade engineered solutions that showcase our expertise...
Our remote services solution, SE Cloudlink, allows the proactive and remote management of systems by highlighting faults, performance, trends, historical data and any service requirements.
We provide CAD drawings in DWG format for our products including bespoke items. We work with system companies to provide installation details for combinations of our products with their systems.
BIM Objects are digital representations of products that can show size, geometry and performance. We take a first to market approach regarding BIM objects which are available for all core products.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Modelling is a method of predicting the flow of gases using numerical analysis and data structures. This can be provided as part of our project management service.
Free Area Calculations measure the physical size of an opening through which air or smoke can flow. There are 3 methods to measure free area which are applied relative to the application.
Some projects require bespoke solutions where standard products can’t achieve the required solution. We can provide bespoke fittings for actuators to meet the building design requirements.
Wind/Snow Load calculations determine the necessary performance of an opening vent to ensure it achieves its opening distance and speed even under extreme environmental conditions.
Working alongside our Sales Team, our Application Engineering Team evaluate each project and deliver engineered solutions to bespoke and unexpected complications on-site.
We will work with consultants to develop a ventilation strategy including design, installation, commissioning and maintenance to ensure not only the performance but also the compliance of a building.
We regularly use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), amongst other computer modelling software, to provide effective ventilation concepts and solutions that are tailor made for each building.
SE Controls has collaborated with leading system companies to develop Tested Solutions. Our testing programme is ongoing and more tested solutions will be shown in the portal as and when they are available.
