Be Safe Direct has been called upon to provide a number of its smoke ventilation systems for new residential development in Hertfordshire.

Comprising three individual blocks, the Bridgewater Gardens development on Salisbury Road, Hoddesdon, includes a total of 52 apartments. Blocks A and C will be spread over three floors while block B will consist of four storeys.

Automatic Opening Vents (AOVs)

In order to ensure the development meets the required Building Regulations, Landhurst Electrical Services Ltd selected a number of fire safety systems from Be Safe Direct, including the components to install three louvered automatic opening ventilation (AOV) systems to allow the extraction of smoke from the premises to provide a clear escape route for residents and access for firefighters.

Be Safe Direct also supplied a control unit to work alongside the AOV, and a number of ancillary products.

Due to the scale of this build, where a fire engineering consultancy was not required, Landhurst Electrical Services Ltd was able to reduce the overall costs by having the most appropriate fire safety system provided directly from Be Safe Direct.

Graeme Cook, Estimating Manager at Landhurst Electrical Services added:

“Ensuring maximum safety for the future residents of developments such as this is a major priority. By working with Be Safe Direct, who provided a vast range of competitively priced systems, we’re confident that this will be achieved.”
