When a building is inadequately ventilated, it creates a build-up of heat, moisture and chemicals that can cause health problems for occupants. Natural ventilation creates a natural airflow in the building, ensuring higher air quality and a better working environment. It’s the natural choice that’s also cost effective.
By adding high-level operable windows, which allow the hot air to escape, together with lower level windows, which draw cooler air into the building, you create a natural airflow. This provides effective ventilation and comfortable temperatures within the building without reliance on mechanical means thus reducing energy consumption and reducing emissions.
Arens International is Australia’s leading manufacturer and supplier of remote control window systems, and recently developed the Ventilation Control panel which, when used in conjunction with the electric actuators, controls the opening and closing of windows to achieve ideal conditions. This integrated system results in more comfortable temperatures and can drastically reduce energy consumption and associated costs.
Arens International ventilation systems can also be incorporated into smoke dispersal systems, with one of our first major projects being the Hong Kong Shanghai Bank Headquarters in Hong Kong twenty-six years ago.
For over 50 years Arens International has been providing technical expertise and design advice to help architects and designers incorporate the principles of natural ventilation in their projects. We work with our clients from the design concept through to practical completion of a project – and we offer after sales service.
Our trained installation teams not only install our products, they follow the project through to full commissioning.
