Ventilation for commercial buildings.

Bringing fresh air into your Commercial building can now be accomplished. A Riteflo ventilation system will move outdoor air into an interior space and distribute the fresh air within the building. By diluting and removing the pollutants from the building, your ventilation system will provide a healthy atmosphere.

Building ventilation consists of three elements:

    Natural Ventilation

    A natural ventilation system is a reliable and low-cost structure which achieves high air exchanges by natural forces. Natural ventilation is an efficient option, especially if heating is not a requirement and if well designed, can be utilised to access higher levels of sunlight. By using daylighting principles with natural ventilation, this science will provide sustainable solutions for commercial use. By introducing daylight into darkened spaces, stale and contaminated air and moisture will be removed safely.

     Damp timber in the subfloor can change the cell structure resulting in expansion of the wood. Warping, bending, and dry rot will lead to the floors supporting structures failing. A natural ventilation system will reduce condensation, keep insulation dry and discourage nocturnal insects and vermin; therefore, helping protect your valuable asset.

    Ventilation systems that have no running costs are silent and provide healthy air.

    Natural ventilation systems will provide healthier air and increased daylight to residents, clients, and staff. There are many known issues with older buildings with inadequate ventilation, namely fungal spores, mould, condensation, and dust mites. Health problems are a known outcome from these concerns.

    Newer buildings may exacerbate some issues because they are airtight with contaminants, and carbon dioxide can become trapped inside the building. A modern air exchange system will bring many benefits.

    How does the Ventilation System work?

    Consideration for Commercial buildings include climate (temperature and humidity), landscape and environment, wind direction, noise, pollution, temperature range, thermal comfort, occupancy and building use. Sustainability principles being considered for new buildings should include orientation and the relationship to the site, the organisational layout, floor plate depths, the location of the supply and exhaust openings.

    A natural ventilation system delivers fresh air into structures by using differential pressure, caused by wind or the buoyancy effect of rising warm air. Wind will create a positive influence on the windward side of the building and negative pressure on the leeward (calm) side. Pressure equalisation will occur between the two surfaces leading to horizontal cross ventilation of floor plates. Wind-driven systems need a reasonably direct route between the windward and leeward sides of a building.

    Vertical separation of supply and exhaust openings produce a stack effect. (a slight vacuum in the lower levels of the building, which then pulls fresh air into the building via windows on the ground floor). This process creates a natural airflow into spaces.

    Riteflo has the perfect natural ventilation system for your commercial building. Integrating their natural ventilation systems offer many benefits to your new or existing structure. Riteflo is a unique system. Once installed, there are no further costs for you. Protecting the occupants of your building, the environment and your financial assets are leading considerations for a reliable ventilation system.
