“The W-Vent (natural ventilation) system offers a cool, fresh, cost-
effective alternative solution to traditional air conditioning, it is
regulated by our advanced intelligent control panel, all day every day"
The system is powered primarily by aerodynamic forces and so the only power required is to run the
low voltage controller unit. This offers substantial costs savings compared to traditional mechanical
ventilation systems that can potentially run into tens of thousands of pounds each year.
By its very nature, the W-Vent (wind ventilator), S-Vent, (solar-ventilator) P-Vent (passive ventilator)
L-Vent (combined wind & light ventilator) and our X-Vent (cross wall ventilation) systems all offer a
natural solution to health problems commonly associated with mechanical air conditioning units.
Rather than re-circulating stale air (and possibly germs), the natural ventilation system is continually
removing stale air and replacing it with a fresh supply. The system takes air from the roof level
eliminating a proportion of pollution, including hazardous carbon monoxide from roadside traffic that
is a common issue with low level ventilation methods.
Our Natural Ventilation products are suitable for many applications including schools, offices and
hospitals. They are also used in private, local authority and commercial premises including
gymnasiums, colleges, universities, reception areas, store rooms, changing rooms, libraries, meeting
halls and are also suitable for specialist applications. They provide an ideal solution for delivering a
'fresh' air supply to areas where conventional room ventilation is difficult due to critical noise issues.
The Ideal Solution
Our Natural Ventilation systems offer architects and consulting engineers not only a natural and
environmentally-friendly solution but an acoustically efficient, economical and aesthetic answer to
Our external terminals can be designed in keeping with the architectural design of the building or can
be manufactured to be of a contrasting appearance, adding and harnessing a feature aspect to the
buildings and its surroundings. Louvres are designed to ensure the maximum available free area of the

"The S-Vent (solar-powered natural ventilation) system offers
additional fresh air requirements during those hot summer months,
and provides a better comfort to the every day working environment”
How It Works
The S-Vent system benefits of a passive stack and an active stack
system, similar to our W-Vent range, but with the bonus of a free
power source. Our S-Vent terminal delivers fresh air and discharges
unwanted stale air (CO²) from internal spaces, effectively eliminating
the need for traditional methods. The system incorporates a solar
powered boost-fan which provides additional 200l/s, 400l/s or 700l/s of
fresh air within the compartment below.
The photovoltaic panel collects daylight and convert this to electricity
that is regulated via the charge controller which charges the battery
pack. The battery is charged whenever there is enough available
daylight to do so and even generates power on a dull day. The S-Vent
range have been designed to supply fresh air 24 hours a day.
The low powered fans are set as standard to simply switch on/off at
maximum dampers or as an optional feature they can be speed
controlled variably in conjunction with the damper positions.

FLUE Good Practise:
There are two methods that can be considered when
designing the dilution system:
DILUTION Air is directly taken from the outside.
Fresh air is taken from within the plant area.
Generally, the favoured option is to take the air direct
from the outside via a louvre situated on the external
face of the building or above roof level.
Further Considerations are:
The inlet and discharge openings shall be, as far as
possible, apart and located on the same building face
to prevent external wind conditions affecting the
overall operation and performance of the dilution

The Vertical Balance ‘FlueVent’ System
The FlueVent balanced terminal works by the process of heat
& aerodynamic principles. It is designed to allow the release
of products of combustion through a twin wall flue system
housed within the roof-mounted terminal, whilst
simultaneously drawing in fresh air through high
performance louvres to ventilate the room below. By design,
the unit is able to provide high or low level ventilation
requirements in accordance with BS 6644 & the IGE.
All terminals are constructed using fully-welded 3mm THK
aluminium outer casing incorporating air ducts sized in
accordance with BS 6644 and IGE requirements.
The standard internal twin wall flue system has a 316 grade
stainless steel fully-welded inner liner, insulated with 50mm
of high density insulation and a 304 grade stainless steel
outer casing. Terminals are available in a variety of sizes and
shapes (square, circular, rectangular, mitred or turret models
with the option of fire retardant GRP) and can be powder
coated to any BS/RAL colour. External louvres come complete
with a low resistance bird mesh guard.
Aesthetically pleasing, the FlueVent terminal provides
architects and consulting engineers with an effective and
economical solution where conventional ventilation
requirements prove difficult to achieve. Designs can be
produced to match any building structure and a three-
dimensional computer generated likeness can be provided for
approval, prior to manufacture. We are also able to supply
special designs to meet with architectural requirements.
The internal flue section of the FlueVent terminates with a
connection to receive one of our twin wall insulated flue
products and is sized to match the appliances used. The
terminal also incorporates removable outer skirts at it's base
to allow access to the roof plate.
An extended internal compartment is available complete with
internal flue and air ducts from the plant room ceiling to the
underside of the terminal.
All of our FlueVent systems are easy to install. The terminal
is designed to mount on either a builder’s curb or our factory
