Keep employees safe and break the link between high temperatures and low productivity in 1 easy click

Since pioneering the science of climate control back in 1931 Colt has remained at the forefront of technological advances. Over 85 years of experience developing custom-designed climate control systems and protecting the health of workers and their productivity, means our knowledge, support and advice are industry-leading. So, let us improve your building’s environment and your productivity.

In light of the Coronavirus pandemic our experience and expertise has never been more valuable. The government has said that it is vital to have well-ventilated workplaces to reduce the spread of the virus.

We can help you create a well-ventilated working environment that keeps staff healthy without risking the temperature dropping to uncomfortable and unproductive levels.

They key criteria to identify when choosing the correct ventilation system for your building.

Low productivity

Some Causes


Getting the right temperature is key in achieving a comfortable working environment for your staff. As part of a survey, we will asses the temperature of the building, as well as look specific machinery heat loads.

Our tools include thermal imaging cameras which allow us to identify exactly where the source of the heat is and assess its impact on neighbouring machinery or equipment.  They can also be useful, in winter, to establish where heat is lost from the building.


Often overlooked, ensuring a good source of supply air is critical to an effective ventilation system.

If your factory has no ventilation system, we can measure elements such as droughts, air currents and distribution velocity to gauge how this would affect any proposed ventilation system. Where your factory has an existing ventilation system, we can evaluate it's performance and suggested upgrades as necessary.


Depending on where your factory is located, you may have to adhere to strict noise restrictions so as not to affect the outside environment. Where your staff are concerned, you will also need to keep to HSE guidelines on levels of noise exposure.

Where noise is an issue we can carry out an acoustic survey that will provide the basis of a solution which will not impact your staff or your neighbours.
