    CLEARANCE OF EARLY-STAGE SMOKE IS A VITAL, LIFE-SAVING MATTER

Home

The Nationwide Group has over ten years of experience of working with architects, consultants and contractors.

We have developed Vent-Guard to provide optimum levels of safety in multi-storey residential properties, hospitals, care homes, commercial premises and educational establishments.

Whilst Vent-Guard is an all-encompassing system, it should not be viewed as a single entity. Rather, it is the optimisation of all the various elements that make up a conventional smoke ventilation scheme.

Through Vent-Guard, the Nationwide Group offers a complete range of services covering every aspect of smoke ventilation – design, supply, project management, installation, commissioning, service and maintenance.

Our way of working is based on shared information and open protocols. With no allegiances to any single equipment manufacturer, we build our smoke ventilation systems around the technologies that are most appropriate to your needs and your building’s design.
