ZerAx® fans ensure safety and health in new mall in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
The new and prestigious Al Rashid Mall in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia has a total mall area of 89.000 m² and houses both shops and offices and an underground parking area.
With thousands of people visiting every day, it is imperative that noise levels are kept to a minimum and that contaminated air discharged from the cars will not affect the public and customers.
The installation includes 69 ZerAx® AUZ-340 Jet Fans distributed within the car park to guide fresh air to all areas and to transport contaminated air/smoke to the extract points. And 15 ACN1120/403-6 High temperature extract fans located in 5 fan rooms. Each fan room has the capacity to extract 78 m³/s of air. Prior to the installation NOVENCO has carefully analysed the airflow by using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) to optimize and show the effectiveness of the proposed solution.
The ventilation solution limits CO levels in the car park and provides smoke clearance in the event of a fire in the car park area. The analysis is used to verify escape routes and free passages for fire and rescue personal in case of a fire emergency in the car park area.
The Jet fans systems have many benefits over traditional ductwork ventilation systems. These include simplified and quicker installation, energy savings, cleaner environment and more effective ventilation throughout the parking area.
