Pacific Ventilation has acquired Ravenscroft Fire Dampers, a New Zealand-based business that has been developing fire dampers for more than 23 years.
Ravenscroft recently released an upgraded Series 2 fire damper range, which Pacific Ventilation will expand to the South Island of New Zealand and Australia. According to Pacific Ventilation, the Ravenscroft Series 2 fire damper meets the latest AUS and NZ standards including AS 1530.4:2014, and requires no separate balancing damper or duct access hatch.
“I am pleased to see the Ravenscroft circular fire damper business going to Pacific Ventilation,” says Ravenscroft Fire Dampers owner Malcom Ravenscroft, who is retiring after 40 years in the HVAC business.
“They have been supporting Ravenscroft Fire Dampers in North Island for eight years, and now take over the Australasian distributorship. Pacific Ventilation will continue manufacturing and distributing Ravenscroft circular fire dampers to the very highest standards.”
Pacific Ventilation Managing Director Peter Gibson, Affil.AIRAH, of Pacific Ventilation, says the addition of Ravenscroft circular fire dampers to the business is a “big win” for Australian and New Zealand customers.
“We look forward to supporting Ravenscroft’s existing North Island customers and offering these outstanding fire dampers to our South Island and Aussie customers. Ravenscroft’s high-quality circular fire dampers are a perfect fit for our business.”
