The fifth façade can make a valued contribution towards the overall aesthetics of a building, as Gilberts Blackpool has explained.
This is courtesy of taking advantage of bespoke options for both mechanical and natural ventilation solutions.
Gilberts Blackpool, through its innovative in-house R&D capability, can produce, from scratch, bespoke roof ventilation terminals.
Furthermore, the terminals can be designed to integrate clear acrylic or glass daylight solutions, be it domed or in-plane panels, which can potentially contribute towards a zero carbon strategy.
Roy Jones, Gilberts’ Technical Director, commented: “We enjoy a colourful, varied and exciting built environment, and the building components need to reflect that. Sometimes, standard options will not meet architectural demands, constraints.
“Any size, any shape, anywhere – we can develop a solution that combines effectiveness with aesthetic design, for flat and pitched roofs, that will function efficiently via mechanical exhaust, wind driven or stack effect natural ventilation strategies, whatever the demands of the design parameters and of course the challenge of local geography and climate.”
Gilberts has developed and manufactured bespoke options that have encompassed square, rectangular and even curved designs, for locations as diverse as Oxford boathouses to a butter packaging facility near the Irish coast and electrical converter stations on the Moray Firth.
The company has its own, in-house purpose-built test laboratory, which, combined with in house 3D modelling and Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) software, allows it to validate any bespoke penthouse design before manufacture and delivery to site.
