Fläkt Woods fans selected for landmark London building

Flakt
Fans from Fläkt Woods have been installed throughout this building on the Canary Wharf Estate in London to meet a range of ventilation requirements.
Fans supplied by Fläkt Woods serve the ventilation requirements of a new 17-storey building on the eastern gateway of the Canary Wharf Estate in London. 20 Churchill place has been purpose built for State Street Corporation. It comprises a 17-storey block, an 8-storey podium wing and a base of natural stone which wraps the building on three sides. FCS Ductwork commissioned Fläkt Woods to design the most effective ventilation mix. A combination including toilet extract fans, Box and Copford fans plus JM axial fans fitted with inverters was proposed as the optimum solution. The building has a floor area of 33 000 m2, with 12 office floors above ground on the northern section and four floors on the southern section. The JM fans are used principally for ventilation, with some handling smoke ventilation at 300°C for an hour and others rated at standard temperature. There are many sizes, ranging from 500 to 1400 mm in diameter. The Boxed range of fans is very compact and can be installed in most confined situations. Intelligent control adjusts power consumption to match system demands. The fans come with sensors, switches, valves and duct-mounted sensors.
