Education is a key sector that Airocle has significantly impacted, providing cutting edge ventilation solutions to primary schools, high schools, gymnasiums, universities, and other institutions.

Beyond our extensive range of ventilation and louvre products, we offer a comprehensive 360-degree Airflow Analysis. This step-by-step process guides clients from initial assessment to product proposals, ensuring complex buildings receive bespoke solutions.

Airocle leads the way in sustainable ventilation systems, pioneering a new era of architectural innovation and environmental consciousness. Join us as we build a greener, healthier future.

360 Analysis Steps:

At Airocle, we offer a comprehensive 360 Airflow Analysis designed for complex projects with high heat load problems. This process involves a thorough evaluation of your site and the development of tailored ventilation strategies. Here is a step-by-step breakdown of our analysis:

Step 1: Initial Enquiry & Site Assessment

We discuss your requirements and conduct site inspections. These inspections allow us to gather essential information and capture detailed images of your site, which are crucial for further analysis.

Step 2: Engineering & Compliance

Next, our team of experts collates all the data collected during the site inspections. We engage in brainstorming sessions to develop ventilation strategies that comply with relevant engineering standards and regulations. Our in-house experts comprehensively analyse, ensuring our solutions meet the highest engineering and compliance standards.

Step 3: 360 Airflow Analysis & Design

Phase 1: Analysis In this phase, we utilise advanced technologies and techniques to understand your building's airflow dynamics comprehensively. We create a 3D geometric model of your structure and employ Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations to predict convection airflow inside the building. Additionally, we employ thermal imaging to identify areas with problematic heat distribution. We also conduct a wind effect study to assess the impact of external factors on airflow. We contour critical temperature and humidity levels to enhance our analysis, providing valuable insights for optimising indoor conditions.

Phase 2: Design Based on the analysis results, we propose natural ventilation solutions that optimise environmental conditions for human occupancy and prioritise fire safety. Our designs adhere to industry guidelines, including the ASHRAE 5S for thermal comfort. We provide a cost-effective implementation plan that includes a simulation comparing the current systems in place with our proposed solution. This allows you to visualise the potential benefits and make informed decisions.

Step 4: Budget Cross-Check

We understand the importance of budget considerations. Our team reviews materials pricing and labour costing to ensure the proposed solution meets your financial expectations. We provide a transparent cost comparison, ensuring that our solution fits within the parameters defined in the initial client brief.

Step 5: Solution & Product Reveal

Finally, we present an executive summary of the audit findings and the proposed solution. This includes estimating the return on investment you can expect from implementing our recommendations. We also provide a detailed cost comparison between our proposed mechanical ventilation solution and alternative approaches, allowing you to evaluate the benefits and make an informed decision.

While the 360 Airflow Analysis is not mandatory for all projects, we highly recommend it for complex projects with high heat load problems. Our thorough and detailed process ensures we develop the most effective and cost-efficient solution for your needs.

The Importance of Inlet Air in Natural Ventilation Systems

Inlet air plays a pivotal role in the effectiveness of natural ventilation systems, which is crucial to improving indoor air quality and the performance of building occupants. By facilitating the entry of fresh air, inlet openings enable the displacement of stale indoor air, effectively removing pollutants and promoting a healthier environment. This influx of fresh air reduces the concentration of airborne contaminants and replenishes oxygen levels, enhancing cognitive function and overall well-being. Furthermore, introducing fresh air through well-designed inlet openings can significantly impact the thermal comfort of occupants, optimising their performance and productivity. Properly managing and maximising the intake of inlet air in natural ventilation systems is essential for creating a sustainable, healthy, and comfortable indoor environment that supports the well-being and performance of building occupants.
