Architectural Windows: Time For A Fresh View

Architectural Windows: Time For A Fresh View

Giving occupants total control of airflow and their overall environment opens the possibilities for improved health and healing, enhanced productivity and maximum satisfaction within a space.

 

BOOSTING OCCUPANT WELL-BEING

There’s no denying the positive impact of outdoor integration on psychological and physiological well-being. Vented commercial windows empower this integration through trusted and proven ventilation technology.

Studies have linked increased airflow and natural ventilation to:

  • Lower student and employee absences related to illnesses
  • Improved student performance and test scores
  • Increased worker productivity

MAXIMIZING AIRFLOW IMPACT

No matter what the room size, using a single vent can provide effective ventilation. Two vents in the same room improve ventilation even further, allowing air to flow in one vent and out the second.

Location Matters

Strategically placing vents in the wind zones that meet a building’s requirement is key. Locating vents in areas where higher wind speeds are expected could lower the number of vents required for the building, thus saving costs.

  • Same Wall Placement: If the two vents are on the same wall, the effect will be less air movement based on prevailing winds and the internal pressure of the building.
  • Angle/Opposite Wall Placement: If the second vent is on right angle walls or opposite wall to the original vent, cross ventilation will result again based on the internal building pressure and prevailing wind direction.

YKK AP was able to replicate the historic look of the original windows and keep in theme with the building while also providing performance and sustainability. There was a significant thermal performance and improved u-factor with the new YKK AP windows. Basically the architect sat down on the table, hand sketched what he wanted and we replicated.
