Schools & Auditorium Ventilation
HVAC ventilation requirements in schools require care and attention to achieve the best air comfort conditions for learning and developing.
Creating the best environment for learning
Educational facilities provide a variety of differing indoor spaces that all come with their own challenges.
When considering this applciation type we must consider the reduction of noisy distractions that would affect a young persons concentration. We also consider air temperature, draughts, odour control and in some cases where a building is large enough fire safety solutions for safe exit of a building. At FläktGroup we take these needs into consideration and have created solutions that manage the needs of small and large capacity schools and colleges, focusing on class room learning, gynamisums and even comfort in corridors between class time.
Ventilation of Auditoriums
Ventilating large rooms with variable occupancy
Large rooms with lots of volume pose specific challenges to a ventilation system. Large crowds, sometimes bringing outerwear, can produce large amounts of dust.
The variable capacity of a room must also be dimensioned to deliver enough fresh air that will ensure comfort when the room is nearly empty or crowded. Quiet moments during a concert or monologue might require almost complete silence in order that the audience can appreciate the full experience.
