Fieger have provided their FLW 28 units for Boroughmuir High School in Edinburgh, a striking new design by Allan Murray Architects.

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

O’Hare & McGovern Ltd, the main contractor, selected Fieger FLW 28 units to meet the requirements and a total of 77 vents were installed complete with Saint-Gobain Cool-Lite SKN 165 solar protective glazing.

Due to concerns about traffic noise from the nearby Dundee Street, a 40 dB acoustic foil was also included in the external laminated pane.

At high level in both sides of the central atrium, Fieger louvre vents with insulated aluminium blades were installed to provide day-to-day ventilation.

These are fitted to both sides to allow for variations in prevailing wind conditions.

The vents were manufactured with a polyester powder finish to the framework: RAL 7024 to the glazed louvre vents and RAL 9006 to the Atrium vents.

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.
