Ventilux has delivered emergency lighting solutions that provide considerable costs savings against ever-growing maintenance costs for a major social media company in Dublin as well as a leading shopping and entertainment complex.
At the LinkedIn offices in Dublin, Ventilux supplied a DALI-controlled intelligent addressable emergency lighting testing solution while at Liverpool One, the company supplied a NETCOM5 XP intelligent addressable emergency lighting testing solution.
Both systems allow the system to be supervised, tested and monitored from a central location, meaning the maintenance engineer does not need to physically/visually check all emergency luminaires on a weekly basis, as is currently required under EN50172 legislation.
The also allow the site to be tested in non-working hours, hence less disruption to the work environment. The DALI system at LinkedIn offers a modular design that allows both small and large installations to be competitively specified while an Open Protocol means that other DALI emergency lighting products to be used on the system.
The Netcom 5 XP system at Liverpool One operates on a Master-Slave protocol. The Control Panel is the Master which controls, monitors and reports on the complete emergency lighting installation. The Control Modules are secondary masters linked to the central Control Panel via Ethernet Hubs and provide an Ethernet/CAN gateway to the Nodes.
LIGHTING DESIGN SERVICE
The solutions at LinkedIn and at Liverpool One were created by the Engineering Design Department at Ventilux.
The company prides itself on the flexibility of solutions offered by a department that consists of technically expert engineers who are all highly trained graduates dedicated to developing cost effective emergency lighting designs.
In order to achieve the best results, Ventilux utilises state-of-the-art design software platforms like CAD/ Dialux/Relux to provide efficient lighting designs. The company can also offer a pre-design walk on site (if required). The client would be provided with a Dialux report which enables them to get a clear indication of various light intensity and Lux level requirements. The designs are modelled in Dialux platform (2D & 3D) and then regenerated in Auto CAD (2D).
The team also makes sure all designs for projects across the world meet the required standards, including Irish Standards (NSAI- I.S 3217.2013 + A1:2017), British Standards (BS 5266); Qatar Civil Defence (QCD)l; and UAE Standards (NFPA 101).
Ventilux engineers have completed the QQI Level 6 certificate training in Emergency Lighting Design and Commissioning while Ventilux has the ability to project manage small, medium and large projects from design phase, to commissioning and handover.
The expertise of the company’s specialist engineers provide technical assistance at all times to ensure complete peace of mind.
