Train Shed Fume Extraction System

Ducting Express was contacted by one of Wales’ oldest steam railway companies to design & install a system to remove steam from within their new railway building. Part of our challenge was to ensure that steam from the trains was removed from within the building but also ensure that visitors could still view the trains from a new viewing gallery.

Following enquiry, we conducted a site visit and worked alongside the customer to agree a design.

Once the design concept was agreed between the customer and Ducting Express, the installation of the system took place over a three-week period by our skilled installation team; Installing three large 21 metre canopy hoods to three individual train lines. The ducting had to terminate to a central louvre compartment of the roof as hole penetrations were not allowed to the walls and roof of the building.
