Safe Exhaust Management at Council Vehicle and Transport Depots

Councils, public works facilities and general transport depots can make use of a simple, fast and economical way to improve the indoor air quality for employees.

As part of a perpetual drive to maintain good occupational health and safety standards in the workplace, installing an exhaust fan system on the existing roof of any depot allows fast removal of exhaust emissions from vehicles stored there.

Trucks and other vehicles used by the public works depots and transport companies often have a fleet of vehicles parked within a depot overnight before being started in quick succession every working day. Without installed roof exhaust fans, smoke can fill the depot upon vehicle start-up and employees working in the depot can easily be exposed to this danger.

As an air movement specialist and using it suite of technologies and installation expertise, Fanquip map out an optimised solution and place roof fans strategic positions on the depot roof. By fitting Fanquip Hooded Roof Fans, a site has the advantage of being able to remove entire panels as these units are ‘profiled based’ in equivalent standard sheet lengths to fit quickly and easily into the current roof arrangement.

When instituted, Fanquip roof fans ensure, when drivers start their vehicles, that the internal air is as clear as it possibly can be. All emissions travel upwards to be ventilated and expelled into the atmosphere. As Fanquip’s Hooded Roof Fans are supplied in any of six standard profile bases (corrugated iron, Trimdek, Super Six, Spandek, Double Rib & Span 4, and Longspan) retrofitting is normally a straightforward procedure.

Using a profile base, installation costs and time were cut by as much as 60%. The units can also be installed by customers quite easily. No upstand or structural supports are needed, while birdmesh protection is provided. Made from structural fibreglass with metal sleeves and reinforcements, Fanquip Hooded Roof Fans are used in heavy industry applications and heat, fumes, odours, smoke and dust can all be alleviated by the use of exhaust ventilating. Fanquip Hooded Roof Fans strategically placed are effective in this workplace environment improvement.
