What is Industrial Ventilation?

Industrial ventilation is a crucial field of engineering that aims to improve air quality and working conditions in industrial environments. Our engineers are involved from design, to installation through to maintenance of ventilation systems.

Industrial ventilation focuses on air exchange inside industrial buildings, where various processes can generate pollutants, fumes, dust and toxic vapors. The installation of a ventilation system represents a major challenge for many industries, as it plays a decisive role in safeguarding employee health, guaranteeing optimum safety and improving overall company performance.
