Gilberts Blackpool has provided ventilation louvres for the new Windermere Jetty, Museum of Boats and Stories, designed by Carmody Groarke as part of a RIBA international design competition for Lakeland Arts.
The £16 million museum will rehouse one of the most significant collections of watercraft in the world. Made up of a cluster of buildings, the museum will comprise a boathouse, conservation workshop and a learning centre that reflects the site’s industrial heritage.
Project consultants ARUP specified 28 of Gilberts’ WHF75 flanged ventilation louvres to integrate into the external soffit zones of the castellated copper façade and provide efficient airflow and ventilation throughout the building range.
Installed by contractor Lakesmere, each of the ventilation louvres was fitted with a VN75 volume control damper, into the external façade of an SFS substructure with a copper profile rain screen skin.
The VN 75 ventilation damper provides an accurate and stable airflow, with a U value of 0.96W/m2/K and less than 5m3/hr/m2 of air leakage.
The WHF louvres also feature a 75mm blade pitch that delivers Class A weather ability and a free ventilation area of 50 per cent.
The Series WH is a core element of Gilberts’ air movement solutions, which incorporates grilles, louvres, and diffusers for natural, hybrid and mechanical ventilation.
