Elta helps to meet the ventilation requirements of new London station

Elta, fans
These four large fans made by Elta will provide ventilation for staircases in the new Dalston Junction Railway Station.

Elta Fans has supplied four long-case run-and-standby fans for the pressurised ventilation at the new Dalston Junction Railway Station being built in the London Borough of Hackney. These 1250 mm fans were supplied and fitted by Advanced Smoke Technology, which designs and installs smoke-control, extract and pressurisation systems.

They are mounted in pairs on purpose-built frames on the ceiling of the station building above the west and east stairwells. They are wired into the master control panel of a pressurisation system, which incorporates an automatic changeover facility should the duty fan fail to switch to standby mode.

Finished in RAL 7001 matt grey to the specification of London Underground Ltd, the units and accessories supplied meet the requirements of Section 2 Materials Approval as defined in the Fire Precautions Act and the LUL Standard Fire Safety Performance of Materials Specification.

Specialised electrical cabling connects the fan motors to external terminal boxes that also comply with Section 12 of the LUL specification.

Briggs & Forrester is engineering-services contractor for the project.
