Keeping your premises and your staff safe at work is incredibly important, especially if you are working in an environment that is deemed as dangerous or high risk - such as a manufacturing warehouse. Your workforce is the most important part of your business, so ensuring that they are safe and healthy has to be your top priority. There are several health and safety regulations that one must follow in order to create a safe working environment, many of which could lead to your business being shut down if you fail to follow them correctly.
This is especially important when considering the different aspects of fire safety regulations, which are being changed and updated all the time. According to hse.gov.uk, it is crucial to carry out regular fire safety checks and ensure that hazards, such as smoke and dangerous substances are dealt with correctly.
As mentioned above, fire safety and fire prevention is a must for any business or company but sometimes problems can arise in the safest of places. If your staff are working in an environment that produces high amounts of smoke and fumes or is at a high risk of fire, then equipment such as a ACK4 chain actuator would be of great benefit to you. The ACK4 chain actuator is a mechanism that can be used alongside smoke detectors and other prevention equipment, to keep smoke build up to a minimum if fire does occur.
Using a tough and secure bracket, both the chain and the body of the ACK4 chain actuator can be attached to the window for automatic opening, giving you easy and safe smoke ventilation. Alongside this, the double chain system is contained in a body of aluminium and is robust enough for the most dangerous of buildings, ensuring that it’s the perfect addition to anyone’s standard fire and smoke safety equipment. One of the greatest advantages of ACK4 chain actuators is that they are easy to install, meaning even the biggest novice can benefit from them and whether you need two, five or ten they’ll be up and running in no time.
Although actuators may seem unnecessary on the surface, it is always important to remember that smoke and toxic fumes are the biggest killers when fire strikes, so keeping the air well ventilated could save lives.
