Not only is SE Controls one of the UK’s largest smoke ventilation specialists, we also operate globally.
Our smoke control systems are used worldwide and our reputation for compliance, design integrity and performance are well known. We undertake detailed compliance audits on smoke control solutions and provide reports on any remedial action required together with ongoing planned maintenance solutions delivered by our own qualified engineering team.
The task of assessing the current status of existing systems can be a time consuming process and the outcomes can be inconclusive if not conducted by a professional organisation, such as SE Controls.
Not all contractors have the ability to maintain the wide range of available manufacturers’ smoke ventilation systems due to system software protocols and restrictions on procurement.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force in 2006, it has changed fire safety requirements and affects ALL UK organisations replacing over 70 separate pieces of fire safety legislation.
Where previously the Fire Brigade would provide assistance to your companies’ fire safety arrangements and issue a fire certificate, this is no longer valid. Owners, employers and managers are now deemed responsible for adequate safety within their premises.
The smoke ventilation system is part of the overall fire safety strategy and under the RRO the responsible person must ensure that equipment and devices are maintained in efficient working order and in good repair to safeguard the relevant persons within the building.
It is your personal responsibility to check that your contractor can show evidence of compliance.
SE Controls offers a range of solutions to provide peace of mind, for example, our Remote Service solution SECloudlinkTM can ensure around the clock compliance and tenant safety whilst keeping costs down, by reducing the need for engineers to attend site.
SE Controls can help you be more robust and fully compliant with all the relevant legislation.
