FireSpray’s Ducting System to Replace Horizontal Shaft Wall in Helios Project

A new exhaust ductwork system for a lab in Berkeley’s Helios Energy Research facility at the University of California has been rendered by Firespray International. This will help to tackle an issue encountered while constructing a 113,000 square-foot building in Berkeley.

The building, to be built with five floors is aimed at acquiring certification from Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). When Gaynor, the designers and SmithGroupJJR, the architects were thinking of a design for the highly limited space in the ceiling, Firespray’s Flamebar BW11design was proposed by Critchfield Mechanical (CMI) of San Jose. The company’s exhaust ductwork will save space and can be fastened at a single time. The stainless steel, factory-sprayed duct system has been constructed according to SMACNA standards.

In compliance with uniform mechanical code (UMC) and international mechanical code (IMC), the exhaust duct system has been approved by California University to be used in the campuses of Irvine, San Francisco and Berkeley.

A project engineer in Rudolph and Sletten, Mr. Gabe Pattee informed that the Flamebar will be used instead of constructing horizontal shaft wall and stated that the project with a lab at the top required larger space for construction. Flamebar will minimize the cost and time. The horizontal shafts have been replaced by Flamebar.

The Vice President of FireSpray USA, Mr, Joe Vincenti stated that the duct system reduced the space over one foot, both in vertical and horizontal dimensions.

FireSpray International focuses on fire duct systems for industrial and domestic applications.
