“People feel better in Colt conditions”
We help people to feel healthy, comfortable and safe in their working and living environments with our natural ventilation, performance louvres and smoke control systems. People in Colt conditions enjoy optimal air and lighting quality, comfortable temperature and humidity levels, and better health and productivity. In the case of fire, they can count on smoke-free escape routes for safe evacuation and access routes for effective fire-fighting.
Colt is part of the Colt Group, which is present around the world through locally staffed companies and strategic partners backed by a global organisation. This means that our local teams are able to support its customers with the best expertise and first-hand knowledge developed in projects around the world, using the resources of a global company.
