Darren will be responsible for commercial, industrial and fire ventilation ductwork contracts at Hargreaves.

Heating and ventilation ductwork manufacturer and contractor, Senior Hargreaves, has appointed Darren Webster as the new operations director. In his new role Darren will be responsible for all commercial, industrial and fire ventilation contracts from order to completion.

Darren started as a draughtsman in 1986 with Hargreaves, quickly progressing to engineer, senior engineer and contracts office manager. “It was as contracts office manager that I realised that there is a real potential to expand the market share for our fire resistant ductwork product. This will be one of the key challenges in my new role,” he explained.

“We enjoy a good reputation in the industry, but there is a need to build further on this and ensure that we align our focus our clients’ requirements to meet and exceed their growing expectations for quality, safety and competitiveness wherever possible.” Darren observed.

Welcoming Darren to the board, managing director, Kevin White, commented, “Hargeaves is a long established company that has succeeded by continuously adapting to meet customer needs. Darren’s appointment will bring fresh ideas at a time when our industry is changing rapidly.”

Fire resistant ductwork has a special role in life and asset protection. In compartmentalised buildings it enables safe transport of smoke and toxic gasses to a point of discharge.

Essential requirement for fire ducts within a fire zone are stability and integrity. Stability is the ability to remain intact and operable when conveying high temperature gas. Integrity is the ability to remain gas-tight without leaks of products of combustion from ductwork joints. Where fire ducts pass through adjoining areas, fire ducts must also have insulation such that outer surfaces remain cool and cannot propagate fire by radiation. Hargreaves answer to these exacting technical standards is the HFD product range. These are heavy duty engineered ducts in various configurations that are tested to provide from 30 minutes to 240 minutes security.
