Title (EN) FLOOD PROTECTION FOR UNDERGROUND AIR VENTS
(FR) PROTECTION CONTRE L'INONDATION POUR ÉVENTS D'AÉRATION SOUTERRAINS
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus allowing ventilation through a ventilation shaft to an underground ventilation duct fluidly communicating through the ventilation shaft to an atmospheric opening of the shaft and on threat of flooding operable to prevent downward flow of surface water into the ventilation duct includes support sidewalls fitting in the shaft providing a ventilation passage between support top and bottom openings and a suspension member supported on opposed lateral sidewalls proximate the top opening holding one or more hinge connected panels that manually release to rotationally close the passage and are manually rotationally liftable to a home position allowing ventilation. A panel drain automatically closes when the panel is raised to home position. A releasable latching system between panel and a suspension member holder catches rising panels to hold them in home position. The suspension member may include end keys received in keyed supports so a specific panel faces a specific sidewalk.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil permettant la ventilation à travers un puits de ventilation vers un conduit de ventilation souterrain en communication fluidique à travers ledit puits de ventilation vers une ouverture atmosphérique du puits et, en cas de menace d'inondation, permettant d'empêcher l'écoulement vers le bas de l'eau de surface dans le conduit de ventilation, qui comprend des parois latérales de support s'ajustant dans le puits offrant un passage de ventilation entre les ouvertures supérieure et inférieure de support et un élément de suspension supporté sur les parois latérales en regard à proximité de l'ouverture supérieure, maintenant un ou plusieurs panneaux reliés par des charnières qui se libèrent manuellement pour fermer le passage par rotation et qui peuvent être élevés manuellement par rotation jusqu'à une position de repos permettant la ventilation. Un drain de panneau se ferme automatiquement lorsque le panneau est soulevé jusqu'à la position de repos. Un système de verrouillage amovible entre le panneau et un support d'élément de suspension vient en prise avec les panneaux montants pour les maintenir en position de repos. L'élément de suspension peut comprendre des clavettes d'extrémités reçues dans des supports clavetés de sorte qu'un panneau spécifique est tourné vers un trottoir spécifique.
