The challenge

A new facility was erected at the Vredenburg Campus (South Africa) in December 2008. Ventilation was not considered in the development stage of the facility and was, therefore, very poor with only natural air flow through open doors and windows and some ‘whirlybirds’ in the roof of the building.

It was clear that - with welding being the main training activity to take place in this new facility - the fumes would be a major problem.
