HORIZONTAL MENOFUMO HORIZONTAL SMOKE AND HEAT EXHAUST SYSTEM 

In the event of a fire it is essential to encourage the escape of smoke and heat to reduce the risk of intoxication and accidents due to the outflow of people, and facilitate first aid and emergency operations

The HORIZONTAL MENOFUMO creates a smoke-free layer at floor level. In addition to being an effective smoke and heat exhaust system, it can be used daily as an indoor ventilation system. 

In accordance with UNI EN 12101 – 2 : 2004

The standard specifies the requirements and testing procedures for natural smoke and heat exhaust systems intended for installation as components in smoke and heat control systems.

Performance and classification

The HORIZONTAL MENOFUMO exhaust system has been certified by an authorised research institute in accordance with the product standard EN 12101-2 and has obtained CE marking. The classifications obtained are valid for the whole range produced by BASSO, irrespective of size and type.

LOW AMBIENT TEMPERATURES (T)00
The performance defines the minimum room temperature at which the exhaust system can work. The HORIZONTAL MENOFUMO can work at a room temperature as low as 0°C.

RELIABILITY: RE 50
The performance defines the number of successive opening/closing cycles up to the fire safety position without any breakages or permanent deformations that could compromise functionality after the preset number of cycles.

WIND LOAD: WL 1500
The wind load test consists in testing the opening of the NSHES after external vacuum simulation. The HORIZONTAL MENOFUMO passed the test with 1500 Pa.

HEAT RESISTANCE: B 3000
The heat resistance test consists in testing the opening of the NSHES at high temperatures. The HORIZONTAL MENOFUMO passed the test at 300°C.

UNDERLOAD OPENING: SL 1000
The performance defines the maximum snow load with which the NSHES is able to open in a maximum time of 60 seconds. The HORIZONTAL MENOFUMO has been classified SL 1000 when lifting a load of approximately 102kg per sq.m (1000 Pa) with a headwind speed of 10m/s.

Sistemi di apertura

The NSHES is opened by moving a pressurised CO2 powered cylinder, contained in a canister installed on the mechanism itself. The opening pulse is controlled by the breakage of the HEAT-SENSITIVE VIAL calibrated at a preset temperature (68°/93°141°/182°), also installed on the mechanism, or a centralised pneumatic system, or by a PYROTECHNIC OR ELECTROMAGNETIC ACTUATOR controlled by a control unit. These actuators break the heat-sensitive vial upon receiving a pulse from the central control unit.

Automatic devices

The HORIZONTAL MENOFUMO can be equipped with four different types of automatic opening devices:

Inspection and maintenance

As provided for by the regulations in force, the HORIZONTAL MENOFUMO must be able to be inspected from the outside for ordinary maintenance. This operation must be performed with the removable release lever, designed by us, which prevents the exhaust system from being opened by unauthorised personnel.

Easy Air – Daily ventilation

easy-air-2

Easy Air is an innovative opening system with a sole electric actuator and a double levering system.
This accessory allows the HORIZONTAL MENOFUMO to be used as a normal openable skylight

Home automation

The new feature we are presenting is the option to control even from long distances the simultaneous opening and closing of all the skylights of a building like a commercial or industrial complex in case of bad weather when you are in the office or elsewhere. With Mowin Open App, home automation is very easy to install, thanks to telephone and on-site technical support. Mowin Open App makes every operation simple and intuitive.

PLUS

  • Simultaneous management of up to 255 openings
  • Management of openings through smartphone app
  • Wireless remote control device with integrated web server
  • Programming of openings

Covering materials

COVERING MATERIALS

  • Domes in compact PC polycarbonate/alveolar PCA
  • Rib covering in polycarbonate
  • Flatbed in alveolar PCA
  • Sandwich panel

OPENABLE FRAME

The structure is composed of two frames, one openable and one fixed, in extruded natural 6060 aluminium alloy, joined together by means of aluminium hinges with stainless steel pins. There is an EPDM gasket between the two frames to ensure a perfect closing.

Skylight

To improve the thermal performance of all our products, both fixed and open, it is possible to add a skylight made with alveolar polycarbonate sheets in opal or transparent colour.

THERMAL TRANSMITTANCE
Thermal transmittance is the transmission of heat that occurs through a body when it is subject to a difference in temperature, therefore representing the thermal flow per surface area unit that passes through a technical element (skylight) which separates two environments where air temperature has a unit difference.
According to (Italian) Legislative Decree 311/06 and (Italian) Presidential Decree 59/09, Italy has been divided into 6 climate areas subject to different thermal transmission values, to reach greater energy efficiency.

Bases

SHEET METAL BASES

The base is made from pressed sheet metal (galvanised – prepainted – stainless steel – printed RAL on request with a standard thickness of 12/10mm).
Its height can be customised according to the needs of the site and the lower lip support is made according to the type of covering to be adapted to. The base can be supplied as a single wall or insulated with a self-extinguishing polystyrene panel with a thickness of 4cm adapted to be sheathed, by the customer, or coupled to an external galvanised sheet of a thickness of 8/10mm to be connected to the covering. The thickness and type of insulation are also customisable aspects.

  • Made to measure
  • Adaptable to any covering
  • Made in small/large sizes
  • Insulation on request.

Nets

FALL PROTECTION NET

The electrowelded fall protection net can be installed above or below the base and comes with triple selvedge at the ends with horizontal and vertical wires, both linear, made from galvanised steel with a diameter of 2.0mm and 100x50mm mesh. This net is drop test certified (drop weight 50kg, drop height 1,200mm).

ANTI-INTRUSION NET ACCORDING TO ANIA REGULATIONS

The electrowelded galvanised anti-intrusion net can be installed above or below the base and can be produced with round bar, 15mm in diameter and 180x500mm mesh.
