For five decades, we have consistently demonstrated our commitment to engineering excellence in the design and manufacturing of market leading ventilation products. Our certified smoke range offers world class performance, from car park solutions to bespoke and OEM applications. Produced with meticulous attention to detail at our manufacturing sites across the UK, Elta’s renowned smoke range has earned international acclaim, reflecting the brand’s dedication to excellence in ventilation solutions.

In the interest of fire safety innovation, Elta emerges with a new pioneering solution for smoke fans with its certified prefabricated smoke range. This comes as an add on solution to Elta’s fans for both general and emergency situations.

Engineered to streamline installation processes, these prefabricated units mark a significant shift in the industry’s approach to designing and implementing smoke ventilation systems. We aim to redefine standards by simplifying complexity and reducing project timelines with prefabricated solutions, to ultimately ensure on-site safety and compliance.

Elta offers a range of car park fans that operate on well-proven tunnel ventilation principles, producing a high velocity jet that, as it diffuses, imparts thrust to the surrounding air through mixing and entrainment. The range includes both induction and impulse ventilation models, specifically designed to serve as both general ventilation systems and for one-time emergency extraction of smoke during fire incidents, and are able to operate at temperatures up to 400°C. The product design eliminates the requirement for ducted systems, making efficient use of the limited space of enclosed car parks, in addition to reducing power consumption and associated running costs.

Recognising the critical nature of rapid smoke extraction in fire incidents, our emergency smoke extract fans are specifically engineered for high performance, and high temperatures. These fans are designed to efficiently remove smoke from affected areas, contributing to a safer environment for building occupants and emergency responders. We can offer F200, F300 and F400 models with a range of motor mounting arrangements, as well as both 50hz and 60hz versions available across the different models.

Complementing the comprehensive range of smoke ventilation solutions, we also offer advanced bespoke control systems designed to provide real-time monitoring and response capabilities. Seamlessly integrated within smoke ventilation systems, these intelligent controls provide building managers with precise and automated smoke extraction management. From emergency scenarios to routine maintenance,  control systems play a pivotal role in enhancing overall system reliability and effectiveness.

The fundamentals of the Elta product range are quality, performance and integrity. Our quality procedures comply with the requirements of ISO 9001, and all smoke fans are certified to EN 12101-3. We also have our own dedicated test laboratory facilities which are AMCA accredited, with products sound tested to BS EN ISO 5136:2009 and BS ISO 13347-2:2004, and air performance tested to BS EN ISO5801:2007.

Elta’s commitment to fire safety goes beyond complying with industry standards. We adopt an innovative approach, ensuring our solutions not only meet regulations, but also exceed expectations. Through ongoing research and development, Elta continually pushes the boundaries of what’s achievable in smoke ventilation, establishing new standards for safety in the process.
