As of March 1, 2023, the Executive Board of D+H Mechatronic AG will be expanded by two additional members. The previous authorized signatories and members of the management, Mirko Matenia and Maik Schmees, will now continue in their previous areas of responsibility in the role of the Executive Board.
Founding of D+H France
On 03.10.2022 D+H Mechatronic AG founded its French subsidiary D+H France SAS. It will be the tenth sales and service branch of the German family-owned company based in Ammersbek near Hamburg. As one of the world’s leading suppliers of smoke extraction and ventilation solutions, D+H provides proof that its own system solutions are also highly relevant on the French market.
D+H presents the Atmosphere Awards in 2022
More than 100,000 buildings worldwide can breathe thanks to D+H smoke extraction and ventilation system solutions. Once again this year, the most spectacular projects from service partners and sales companies won D+H Atmosphere Awards. Outstanding solutions - installed in challenging architectural settings - in Sweden, Australia, France, England and Germany received awards.
New standard for SHEV controllers published
An important part of the standard DIN 18232-9, which sets out the requirements for smoke and heat exhaust ventilation, has been revised and was published by DIN in December. This means that the requirements for power supplies and the minimum requirements for control panels are now clearly defined. D+H smoke vent control panels are certified to this effect by VdS and satisfy the minimum requirements in accordance with ISO 21927-9 which have been incorporated into DIN 18232-9. This means even greater planning certainty for architects and planners involved in the project planning of smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems.
Fresh air and powerful fans
System solutions from D+H have been providing safe smoke extraction in case of fire worldwide for over50 years with natural smoke and heat exhaust technology (NSE). However, if the thermal conditions are no longer sufficient for natural smoke extraction, motor-driven fans must be used to help. D+H now also offers system solutions for these mechanical smoke and heat exhaust systems (MSE).
Experience digital planning of window automation in a new way
The D+H Group raises awareness of the D+H brand and of its old and new parent company, D+H Mechatronic AG. The recent entry into the commercial register has finally sealed the merger of D+H Mechatronic AG and Dingfelder + Hadler AG. In addition, BlueKit Factory GmbH, previously a subsidiary, has now been fully integrated into the D+H Group.
If several people are spending longer periods of time in an enclosed space, used air must be regularly expelled and sufficient air exchange must be ensured. Ventilation systems from D+H provide fresh, healthy air at all times of year. These systems use time-controlled, automated ventilation to reliably remove hazardous aerosols.
New D+H partner on the west coast of the United States
The D+H Group continues to expand its international partner network. As of 1 September 2020, Automated Fenestration, Inc. (AFI) from Los Angeles, California is the newest service and sales partner of the globally active solution provider for smoke extraction and ventilation. Thanks to this close cooperation with AFI, D+H is now represented all along the Pacific coast of the United States.
