WCS Ductwork can provide all elements of fire and smoke damper installation and maintenance, helping buildings keep occupants safe and comply with legislation, as well as training for engineers. Damper maintenance is often overlooked but fire dampers should be inspected, tested and cleaned annually, in accordance with the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 and in accordance with BS 9999:2017.
Following any fire damper repair works, WCS Ductclean provides clients with a full support package, ranging from manual fire and electrical smoke dampers to modifications to ductwork systems, ensuring the correct installation and fire protection to the surrounding areas. Examples include fire dampers through floors and dry walls, access doors into the ductwork to enable the damper to be tested, and remedial actions to ensure a building is compliant with current legislation.
WCS Ductclean carries out all aspects of fan maintenance for social housing landlords. Our team of expert engineers can remove, replace or repair all fan components, including housing motors, drives, pulleys and fan belts. We also carry out dynamic balancing.
Where it is no longer cost-effective to service or upgrade parts, WCS Ductclean can remove and replace the fan. Our fans are bespoke and can be manufactured to fit most existing up-stands or site restrictions. Made from high quality powder coated galvanized sheet steel, fitted with acoustic non-hygroscopic foam and non-overloading 100,000 hour long life, low energy motors, energy costs can be significantly reduced. Previous installations have made savings in excess of £1,000 per annum per fan.
WCS Ductclean offers a full range of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) testing services, covering monitoring, sample collection, indoor air assessments and laboratory analysis.
Poor air hygiene and management can trigger ill-health, sick building syndrome and forced absence by building occupants. It can also lead to increased building operation costs and expensive remedial works. Air quality testing is therefore a very important part of ensuring public and commercial buildings are safe.
