Natural ventilation systems are ideal for improving indoor air quality. They are also more cost-effective, environmentally friendly and take up less space than mechanical ventilation systems.
Here at Teal Products, we have supplied them for a wide range of applications. To give you an idea of some of the projects we have been involved in, we have compiled our natural ventilation building case studies into this handy blog.
Harrow Library, University of Westminster
As part of the refurbishment work taking place at Harrow Library at the University of Westminster, we supplied 40 Windowmaster WMX chain window actuators along with a number of WCC motor controllers. We supplied them work across the building in various zones and many of the vents required 2 actuators for successful operation. Therefore, we pre-programmed several of the actuators to work as pairs.
Barons Quay in Northwich
For Barons Quay, a contemporary shopping and leisure development in the town of Northwich, Cheshire, we supplied Windowmaster WCC control units to operate the 7 high-level opening vents. We also supplied WLA 331 rain sensors and WLA 110 room thermostats from Windowmaster to automate the natural ventilation system.
University of the West of England, Bristol
We supplied a range of 24v motor controllers from Windowmaster for use at the University of the West of England in Bristol. These control units were linked up to their BACnet system, allowing for automated opening of the building’s windows.
Hillside Primary School in Dundee
In this natural ventilation building case study of ours, we supplied several Windowmaster WCC 310S/320S motorcontrollers with WCA 3FM interface boards to Hillside Primary School in Dundee. They linked up to this new school campus and community hub’s BACnet system, providing natural ventilation for 700 children in Menzieshill, Dundee.
Big Data Institute, University of Oxford
The Big Data Institute is the name for Oxford University’s new centre for medical research and is set be a new tool in the University’s search for new medical discoveries. What’s interesting about this particular natural ventilation building case study is that the opening vents and our Highline manual window opening system were pre-installed by GIG Fassaden, an Austrian Façade manufacturer, before they were shipped to Oxford and installed. We supplied Highline T150 chain openers and T260 midi operators for use in this project.
