Poor air quality puts the health of your workers at risk and can be a particular problem in confined areas. Low levels of oxygen or the presence of harmful fumes in the air can have an adverse effect on both your immediate and long-term health, and in the most severe cases, can be fatal.Equipment Range
A proven methodology, devised by the RVT Group, to ensure effective control of all on-site health hazards.
In confined spaces such as tunnels, pits, shafts and basements, maintaining a constant flow of fresh air can be challenging. You need to calculate the size of the area to establish how many air changes are required per hour. You also need to know how far away the fresh air source is so that you can calculate how much pressure is required to force fresh air along the ducting. You also need to identify what substances are contaminating the air, for example; carbon monoxide, diesel fumes, methane, nitrogen dioxide, nitrous oxide, hydrogen sulphide etc.; as this may drastically change your ventilation strategy.
The effect of poor air quality varies substantially depending on the exposure time, type of contaminate and concentration of contaminate. Workers could therefore experience anything from dizziness, fatigue and breathing problems, to lung disease and heart disease. In the most severe instances, poor air quality can result in death.
RVT believe that effective ventilation can be managed in three easy steps;
RVT offer both Axial and Centrifugal fans; both of which have different benefits depending on the situation
Ventex fans can move up to 120,000 m3 of fresh hour per hour depending on the model selected
The Ventex range is specifically designed to maintain high pressure over long duct runs
Many of the units can easily be pushed into position and plugged into a 110v supply
Multiple units can be used together to cover an even larger area
Ventex fans are durable and reliable, ensuring you don't have any downtime on site
When teamed with our Dustex range, the fans can be used to create negative pressure in order to stop dust migration
Ideal for tunnel and basement ventilation
