Residential ventilation with
automatic fire protection control

Dantherm's latest generation of ventilation systems can be equipped with Dantherm's fire protection controller (FPC).

In decentralised ventilation applications, the most frequently used solution is to lead exhaust air from each apartment and to the roof through separate air ducts. The ducts are fireproofed and joined in one exhaust air cowl.

Such a solution often requires more ventilation shaft space than available, particularly in connection with renovation projects. Instead, the exhaust air can be removed using one joint air duct. But that requires fire and smoke dampers, fire thermostats and external automatic fire protection. That’s why Dantherm's latest generation of ventilation systems can be equipped with Dantherm's fire protection controller (FPC).

The ventilation unit controls the FPC controller, which in turn controls the fire and smoke damper by means of the connected fire thermostats and smoke sensors. If fire, smoke or an error is detected, the ventilation unit stops running and the fire and smoke dampers close. That stops smoke from spreading to other apartments. The ventilation system keeps running in apartments where there is not fire.

The fire protection controller can also carry out manual and automatic tests, which are recorded in the alarm log. Note that applications using FPC are to be approved by relevant authorities in accordance with applicable legislation.
