With society’s focus on envelope airtightness, have we overlooked the importance of ventilation?

With society’s focus on envelope airtightness, have we overlooked the importance of ventilation?

Studies have shown that operable windows are rarely used to maximise natural ventilation. Additionally, our reliance on heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems for airflow has become all too common. As a result, poor indoor air quality (IAQ) has become a growing concern for architects and building occupants alike.

The AWS Ventient solution incorporates state-of-the-art trickle ventilation into Australia’s leading range of residential and commercial windows and doors.

A trickle vent is a very small opening in a window or other building envelope component to allow small amounts of ventilation in spaces when major elements of the design like windows or doors are otherwise closed.

As building standards improve, we can no longer rely on air leakage as a mechanism for ventilation within the building envelope.

Without electric power, sensors or human intervention, AWS Ventient devices passively control ventilation volumes dependant on ambient temperatures, optimising ventilation without uncomfortable cold drafts.

Key Features:

  • Temperature sensing flow control
  • Insect, rodent and ember screens
  • Intumescent fire barrier
  • Air Filter
  • Integrated system
  • Sound Absorption
