Holiday Inn Express will be assured of optimum performance from its plant through the installation of Kingfisher louvres achieving double bank performance in a single bank application. The four storey, 120 bedroom venue in Dunstable features KW75HPG louvres, plus ancillary mullions, supplied by Kingfisher Louvre Systems.
The single bank of aluminium louvres, colour matched to RAL7015 (slate grey), are strategically positioned on the roof to protect and ventilate plant whilst adding an aesthetic dimension to the building. A double door of louvres to the same specification ensures continuous protection whilst allowing access for plant engineers.
The Kingfisher louvres are BSRIA tested with an A2 classification up to 0.5m/s. They deliver up to 99% effectiveness of water rejection to minimise risk of any damp or moisture penetrating tothe plant behind. By achieving a Cd value of 0.311 - a class B aerodynamic coefficient - they have improved airflow resistance when compared to virtually all double bank louvre systems and also many single bank systems.
Simon Prendergast, Vinci Construction project manager, said, “A double bank louvre system was originally specified; we felt the KW75HPG was more suited to the application because of the product performance and reduced system depth.”
