Current Project – University of Otago Research Support Facility

Project overview

This new facility is a state-of-the-art 3936m2, five storey development that supports Otago Universities animal based research and teaching, meeting stringent animal welfare and health and safety regulations. Designed by Jacobs and under construction by Naylor Love, the project joins others that have been developed by the University and that have used Ventüer products to ensure effective and efficient ventilation.

Ventüer products being used on this project:

1. VL-2SD double bank weather louvres

Weather Protection: The Ventüer VL-2SD ventilation louvre system is an excellent rain defence louvre. Rated as Class A under BS/EN:13030 for air volumes up to 1.5 m3/second, and Class B for air volumes up to 3.5 m3/second it is ideal for exposed locations where high wind speeds and levels of rainfall can be expected.

Fixing Methods: The VL-2SD louvre blades are supported on a two-piece pressure equalised mullion system, and bordered by a 150mm frame that ejects captured water to the front of the panel. It shares the same support frame as the VL-3SD, VL-50CM and VL-100CM, and can be combined with these products to provide cost saving configurations. The standard frame can be fixed in to a wide range of primary support structures and cladding types, including profiled metal cladding, fibre cement sheet, window joinery systems and others.

Ancillaries: The Ventüer VL-2SD can be fitted with a sealed solid backing panel to provide a water-tight rainscreen in areas where the louvres are “inactive”, or not required for air flow. It can also be fitted with bird or insect mesh, and can be coupled with the Ventüer range of air control and fire dampers.

2. VL-3SD triple bank weather louvres

Weather Protection: The Ventüer VL-3SD ventilation louvre system is the ultimate in weather protection. Rated as Class A under BS/EN:13030 for air volumes up to 2.5 m3/second, it is ideal for exposed locations where high wind speeds and levels of rainfall can be expected.

Fixing Methods: The VL-3SD louvre blades are supported on a two-piece pressure equalised mullion system, and bordered by a 150mm frame that ejects captured water to the front of the panel.

3. HD-100 slimline acoustic louvres

The Ventüer AL-100 louvre system is a slimline acoustic attenuator ideal for situations where space is restricted and high levels of sound absorption are not required. Aerodynamically designed, it offers very low pressure drop allowing for excellent airflow. Fabricated from sheet metal, the blades are filled with high-density mineral wool and have the rear faces perforated to enable maximum sound absorption. Bird mesh, insect mesh or dust filters can also be integrated as required.
