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.
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).
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.
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.
D+H, the specialist in smoke extraction and natural ventilation, is presenting innovative installation solutions and proven drive technology for window fitters. The new 4D bracket with four axes for opening a trapezoidal window and a side-hung vent bracket with folding function can be used in even the most demanding applications. Another innovation is the smart BDT Advanced fitting drive for user-independent ventilation with bottom-hung windows.
Pure luxury in Manhattan: The new residential building at 152 Elizabeth Street is nice and cosy, and the sophisticated solution from D+H for natural ventilation in the apartments is one of the main reasons why. This solution consists of an outstandingly quiet CDC window drive and a VLD lock drive. Both drives are completely integrated into the window profile and synchronised with each other.
Awarded with a DGNB platinum certificate, the organic goods trading company Alnatura has a new headquarters in Darmstadt dubbed the "Alnatura Arbeitswelt" (Alnatura employment world) and is raising the bar in the field of sustainable construction. In addition to reusable and previously recycled building materials, environmental friendliness was the main factor in selecting building equipment.
