Beat the Heat with Steel Building Ventilation
Summer months tend to put the most strain on steel buildings. The rise in temperatures can result in a spike in indoor climates to shift. The higher the temperatures, the greater likelihood of stress on workers, technology and equipment can become too much. Proper ventilation throughout facilities is important. The solution here would be utilizing steel building ventilation.
Types of Steel Building Ventilation
Though the OHSA has no specific guidelines on temperature regulation, it recommends maintaining a reasonable temperature throughout steel buildings. This allows for workers to remain safe and produce at a more reasonable state. This all begins with powered steel building ventilation. Design Components offers both wall-mounted and roof-mounted fans, depending on the ventilation design and air flow requirements of your particular building.
Powered Fans are a vital part of a complete steel building ventilation solution. These fans force hot air out of your building while occupied. Our wall fans come in a pre-assembled metal building kit that includes the Fan, Motor, Wall Housing, Gravity Backdraft Damper and OSHA Guard as needed. DCI also offer roof fans. These fans offer many of the same options and go great with our custom built roof curbs.
Another steel building ventilation solution would be our gravity ventilation. DCI offers roof mounted gravity vents that are simple and effective options for ventilating your facility. Often referred to as “Natural Ventilation” roof mounted gravity vents work on the principle that hot air rises. As the inside of your building heats up during the day that excess heat is released naturally through the vents. Our gravity vents come with a number of options, such as Galvanized Steel, Galvalume steel or Aluminum construction with optional painted finishes along with manual or motor operation.
Working with one of our steel building ventilation fans, our various louvers will make sure the air is continuously flowing through your metal structure and allowing for proper air intake. These customizable louvers create cross ventilation your facility needs by either being self-framing to install into a metal wall panel or installed into a framed opening.
Clear The Air with Steel Building Ventilation Smoke Vents
Higher temperatures can magnify elements within closed environments. If your facility is regularly exposed to certain amounts of smoke or chemicals in the air, we recommend installing smoke vents. Our mechanical smoke vents operate by sensing temperatures and opening when things heat up to 165 degrees. A seal automatically burns off and opens the vent, letting any trapped smoke and heat out through the roof of your metal building. This can truly help ease the stress on the indoor environment for your workers and equipment.
