Client - The Phoenix Group
The Phoenix Group is one of the top five medical wholesalers in the world, with revenues in excess of €24bn. It owns pharmacies around Europe, offers pharma services and is a major international distributor.
The organisation required the updating of one of its major warehouse buildings, in Preston Brook, Runcorn. The issue was capacity – as the group becomes ever more successful so it needs to expand its operation. In this instance the client wanted to add a new mezzanine floor and specialist conveyor to the site, changing the profile of the designed smoke control protocols.
Adexsi UK was appointed to work with Andrew Design Services and Linc Conveyors to devise a smoke control system that was suitable for the new layout. The designed solution involved the supply and installation of 66 bespoke Adexsi Certilam smoke louvres, all certified to BSEN12101-2. These vents can also be used for natural ventilation to ensure a healthy and comfortable environment for staff at the warehouse.
To govern the open/closed status of the louvred vents, Adexsi UK also installed an ADX121 Control System pre-programmed with appropriate protocols – all certified to BSEN12101-10.
