Tunnelling & Ventilation

Tunnel applications are often exposed to toxic fumes and other contaminants which can have health implications for those working on site if not addressed properly. In order to reduce the pollution caused by dangerous gases and dust, it is essential that engineers are protected by ventilation systems that remove hazardous fumes and preserve a safe and clean working environment. Andrews Ventilation has offered advice and guidance to tunnelling engineers for many years and will provide bespoke solutions to satisfy all requests.

Fume extraction

Fume extraction

The need to provide a well-ventilated environment within any tunnelling project is of critical importance, as strict health & safety regulations insist on a vented and fume-free workplace to ensure those working on site are protected at all times.

Hazardous fumes inside a tunnel are commonly caused by the dust and gasses emitted as a result of tunnelling developments and exhaust fumes emitted by the equipment used. To secure a safer and healthier environment within a tunnelling application, it is necessary to take strict measures while carrying out the works.

Andrews have a proven track record of providing purpose-built extraction fans to remove air that has been contaminated by fumes and dangerous gasses. These are commonly given off by the heavy-duty equipment used as part of a construction scheme, but our expertise and equipment ensures this is tackled effectively.

We believe the safe and efficient removal of harmful fumes is essential and are confident that our all-encompassing selection of ventilation fans have the power to extract all traces of unclean air. Need advice on a suitable ventilation fan rental? Call us today on 0800 211 611.

The units blowing system works continuously to supply engineers with fresh air – creating a comfortable and safe working environment throughout the entirety of a project.
