With our focus on airtightness, have we overlooked the importance of ventilation?
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.
The AWS Ventient solution incorporates state-of-the-art trickle ventilation into Australia’s leading range of residential and commercial windows and doors.
Key features include the following:
- Temperature sensing flow control
- Insect, rodent and ember screens
- Intumescent fire barrier
- Air Filter
- Integrated system
- Sound Absorption
- Manual Override
As building standards improve and our focus on airtightness increases, 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.
