Natural ventilation at The Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics

Natural ventilation at The Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics

D+H UK supplied and installed natural ventilation systems at The Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics, Durham University.

The large skylights provide additional lighting for the central atrium, meeting areas and social gathering spaces below. It's an integral part of the building and therefore needs to be properly ventilated.

Working alongside window fabricator Topside Group, D+H UK used their synchronised rack and pinion drive sets to provide the perfect balance of current consumption and power. This technology packaged in such a light, compact frame offers perfect day-today natural ventilation solution.

D+H UK also supplied and installed window chain drives, operated by a flush mounted wall switch to provide natural ventilation to the offices. The drives were RAL coloured to match the skylight and window frames.

Controlled opening of these windows generates an exchange of warm, stale indoor air and fresh outdoor air. The control provided by D+H UK creates a healthy living, working and learning environment for all.
