SE Controls is a leading specialist in the design and delivery of smoke ventilation and natural ventilation systems using facade automation as an integral part of the building envelope.

Since 1981, SE Controls has been developing innovative control systems that harness sustainable natural elements to create a safer and healthier indoor environment. Our customers benefit from qualified advice and technical support that is at the leading edge of international regulations and product development. Our products are designed and tested to international standards, keeping our customers at the forefront of technology.

SE Controls is a member of the national ‘Made in Britain’ initiative that recognizes and promotes British manufacturing and has had a production base in the UK for more than 15 years.

Window Automation

Window automation is the use of actuators which enables a window to be opened and closed automatically. Windows are automated to provide both natural and smoke ventilation solutions by reacting to sensors to control the level of comfort within an indoor environment, or to clear smoke to aid in the means of escape or fire fighting operations.

Automating a facade can also provide convenience for the building occupants. Large heavy vents can easily be operated and held at various angles where appropriate to ensure the level of ventilation is sufficient.

There are 12 criteria that needs to be considered when selecting the type of actuator for your project. Get in touch with our experts today for assistance.

Window Automation

Natural Ventilation

As buildings typically consume around 50% of all commercial energy and produce half of global carbon emissions, natural ventilation systems are leading the way in helping reduce both of these figures and provide a more eco-friendly and sustainable future.

SE Controls develop tailored natural ventilation strategies using window automation and facade technology to ensure that low energy design and principles of effective natural ventilation are incorporated into projects from the outset.

Natural Ventilation

Smoke Ventilation

Fires are extremely costly and it is estimated fire causes a loss of £2.5 billion through property damage and human casualties.

As a leading specialist provider of Smoke Ventilation Solutions, we design and install an extensive range of systems integrating smoke control into Smoke, Heat and Exhaust Ventilation systems (SHEV) suitable for any size and type of building. 

We can help ensure that your system is not only fully compliant with all the necessary regulations, but can also advise on the most effective approach at every stage of the process from risk analysis and fire engineering through to completion, commissioning and maintenance.

Smoke Ventilation

Manual Window Control

Manual window control is established in buildings where a number of high level out of reach windows or roof lights systems require remote operation safely and securely.

Manual opening systems can be used for most window systems and can be applied to all forms of windows, bottom hung, top hung, side hung, and central pivotal orientations. We have the ability to design and install tailored solutions to meet the remote manual control requirements for natural ventilation in offices, schools, colleges, hospitals, public buildings and shopping centers.

Our range of rotary handles are available in a range of colors to meet the window profile and actuator to provide an inconspicuous solution.

Manual Window Control

NVLogiQ Room Controller

NVLogiQ constantly monitors indoor air quality, temperature and humidity in individual rooms or zones and users innovative algorithms to automatically control and operate windows, louvres and vents within a building’s natural ventilation (NV) system.

Dr Chris Iddon, SE Controls’ Design Manager, explained: “Corridor and building overheating, particularly in multi-story residential projects is a key issue, as buildings become more airtight and the location of heating pipework in communal areas creates potentially uncomfortable levels of thermal gain, which can reach well in excess of 30 degrees C.

The NVLogiQ allows remote monitoring of the installation and can be used to demonstrate the current room conditions over a period to several months. Once installed, the system can be used to monitor the current air quality and can be downloaded as an easy to read graph which shows a range of readings including CO2, temperature and vent position.

Remote Services

SECloudlinkTM is a Remote Services Solution that allows the proactive management of site-based systems, by highlighting faults, system performance, trends, historical data and any service requirements. Using the latest technology, engineers are able to communicate with systems without the need to be on site.

Using integrated 4G communications technology, the system is enabled to be constantly monitored, as well as allowing any adjustments and tuning remotely, to ensure it matches the needs of the building and occupants, whether it is for smoke control only, environmental ventilation or a hybrid of both systems.

SECloudlinkTM not only provides an effective solution for buildings where on-going maintenance might be an issue, but it is also applicable to all buildings where smoke control systems are installed and require regular maintenance to the standards demanded by BS9991, BS9999 and BS7346 Part 8, together with Building Regulations ADB; European EN12101, and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Maintenance

Our professional maintenance service means our customers benefit from our long-term dedication to projects. It is essential to maintain all fire systems in check especially after the Regulatory Reform came into force. It states owners, employers and managers responsible for safety measures in their premises.

Our maintenance services guarantee your systems continue to comply with all current guidelines and they perform as intended. Many of our systems and natural ventilation solutions could save lives so it is vital regular preventative maintenance is carried out.
