preventing unwanted solar glare and solar heat gains

Healthcare buildings and hospitals benefit from good ventilation and controlled natural daylight, and need to be protected against fire. Colt’s integrated approach can address all these needs.

  • Smoke control systems


Colt natural ventilation, HVAC and shading systems are good for healthcare buildings


We can help you create a comfortable and healthy environment.

We can supply natural ventilators with automatic controls, or hybrid systems integrating natural ventilation and mechanical heating and cooling systems. We can support the design process from an early stage, developing CFD simulations to show how the proposed solution will work. 

Making the best of natural daylight

To reduce overheating and improve the quality of light, we can design and install solar shading that will reduce glare and reduce summer time heat loads.

Colt smoke control ventilation and smoke containment systems can enable:

  • a clear means of escape in a fire
  • a clear view of the fire to assist fire-fighters
  • smoke to be cleared during and after a fire, in order to limit smoke temperatures and structural damage
  • reduced likelihood of damage or loss to buildings and their contents.

Most Colt natural ventilators are dual purpose, providing both natural ventilation and smoke control. 

Designing cost efficiency into your healthcare building

Our integrated approach will ensure that the solution developed for your building delivers most effectively the internal conditions that meet your requirements while minimising initial and running costs through lower energy consumption and maintenance expenses.
