Gilberts solution hits the roof

Air movement specialist Gilberts has further developed its hybrid system which uses internal heat to warm incoming air through wall façade louvres without using a heat exchanger.

The new version of the pioneering Mistrale Fusion System (MFS) has taken the same concept from façade to roof, with MFS-V (vertical).

MFS-V incorporates two Fusion MFS128 units placed vertically into a rooftop penthouse turret, with a shaft up to 1500mm2 ensuring effective ‘stand-alone’ ventilation of the space below. No additional ducting or plant is required. By routing the ventilation through the roof then internal spaces that have no external façade can still be efficiently ventilated, whether through natural or hybrid principles.

The concept has already been put into practice, at eight schools being built in the Midlands which feature enclosed single storey sunken garden ‘break out’ spaces over classrooms surrounded by a two-storey building: the single storey enclosed classrooms can still utilise the MFS strategy employed in the areas with an external façade by using the MFS-V units sited in the sunken gardens.

Roy Jones, Gilberts technical director says: “Developing a roofmounted MFS extends the practicality and usability of this technology.”
