The Bilco Company (Booth # 1456) announces a new partnership with Colt Group, a United Kingdom-based manufacturer of smoke and natural ventilation products for commercial buildings. Beginning in January 2014, Bilco will serve as a distributor of the Colt Group’s line of ventilation products in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Natural ventilation is becoming an increasingly important design strategy for commercial buildings, particularly in GREEN building design. With careful design, buildings can be cheaper to maintain and operate and the addition of fresh air and natural daylight creates a more pleasant and productive working environment for building occupants. The Colt Group’s products provide an innovative and attractive solution for design professionals and building owners.
Bilco will initially focus its marketing efforts on the Colt Group’s actuated ventilators, specifically the Coltlite and Firelight product lines. Coltlite, a natural louvered ventilator that installs easily in the facade of a building, is offered with glazed or insulated aluminum panels that complement any architectural design. Firelight is a glazed natural ventilator that can be installed in a glass atrium or directly onto the roof of a building. Each of these ventilators provide both day to day and smoke ventilation and are available with several options for automated climate control. Colt ventilation products provide highly energy-efficient solutions to maintain comfortable internal climates and to control smoke in an emergency situation with extremely low operating and maintenance costs.
