Gilberts slimline Mistrale 75 natural ventilation for sustainably built Lake Farm Primary School

Mistrale 75 natural ventilator

The slimline Mistrale 75 natural ventilator supplied by Gilberts of Blackpool delivers the best performance for U values and air leakage for sustainably built Lake Farm Primary School.

  • ventilation meets the Council’s commitment to the DSCF sustainable school framework
  • maximises use of the building design, being single storey one side rising to two storey
  • delivers the best combined performance for U values and air leakage of its type
  • surpasses current and medium-term future Regulatory requirements
  • one of the slimmest ventilators available, enabling easier integration into the façade with minimal requirement for boxing in etc. 

Mistrale louvres draw in fresh air

Strategically positioned Mistrale louvres along one façade draw in fresh air, using convection principles to draw the air through the building, and the stack effect to exhaust the warm, used air.

Manual control in each classroom enables teachers to adjust airflow depending on the room’s use and pupil numbers to retain a comfortable ambient temperature and air quality.

  • natural ventilation works 24/7
  • continuously circulates air from outside into the building
  • delivers free night cooling to reduce any requirement for supplementary air conditioning or heating

Colum Sheppard, project manager for JBE Mechanical Electrical, building services provider for the scheme: “The aim was to make use of natural ventilation throughout the building as far as possible. Gilberts gave us the best value for money to achieve the brief.”
