Fieger FLW 28 units at charity support centre for Scottish War Blinded

Fieger FLW 28 units at charity support centre for Scottish War Blinded

Fieger have provided their FLW 28 units for The Hawkhead Centre, a new activity and support centre for the charity Scottish War Blinded, which provides free support to ex-service men and women who have lost their sight during or after military service.

The design team at Page Park Architects specified natural ventilation using double-glazed louvres to complement the natural lighting effect, as well as a sustainable approach to maintaining a comfortable environment.

Gray & Dick Ltd selected Fieger FLW 28 units to meet the requirements for extract via the Rooflights and inlet air through the West elevation.

The vents were manufactured using Saint-Gobain Cool-Lite SKN 176 & 174 solar protective glazing with a Ritec coating and a RAL 7012 Basalt Grey polyester powder finish to the frame-work.

The low-level vents were fitted with D+H LDF motors, programmed to prevent trapping.

In addition to normal day-to-day use, the vents are the “SmoTec” type, tested to EN 12101-2 for use in emergency smoke venting.

A key characteristic of the vents is the energy efficient design, achieved by the class-leading low air leakage rate, together with low U-values.

To assist with enabling a flow of fresh air through the building, as well as in fire conditions, Fieger FLM single-glazed louvre vents were installed above an internal partition wall.

The design of the roof meant that the vents had to be manufactured with a sloping top frame.
