Glazed-in trickle vent with passive temperature sensing flow control
The Ventient EcoSmart Breathe (ESB) is precision manufactured aluminium glazed-in trickle vent that can be accommodated into a wide range of window frames.
The Ventient passive shape memory technology, without electric power, sensors or human intervention, automatically controls ventilation flow dependent on ambient temperatures, optimising the benefits of passive ventilation.
Improvements in construction create buildings that are more airtight than previously, with the result that infiltration or leakiness is no longer providing a pathway for make-up air for exhaust systems.
Although many buildings are complying with building code requirements by having sufficient operable windows, changing lifestyle patterns, concerns about noise and security and generational differences mean that ventilation from open windows tends to be infrequent.
Unlike conventional systems such as operable windows or louvres, Proctor Ventient ESB can get on with the job of providing fresh air circulation regardless of occupancy.
As part of the total ventilation system, Proctor Ventient can provide continuous ventilation to spaces even if they are unoccupied and is perfect for student accommodation, hotels, age care, healthcare and educational facilities.
Ventient is an ideal solution for residential buildings such as modern airtight homes and medium or high rise developments, as modern lifestyles mean that occupants are unable to manage purge ventilation and often return home to a stuffy environment.
