Suitable for all buildings with LEED and BREEAM requirements or where primary thermally broken thermal insulation and superb airtightness is required.

Description

Kingspan Optima energy-efficient louvred ventilator for both smoke and heat exhaustion and ventilation. The Optima offers an optimum contribution to the fire safety, comfort and energy management of a property and is suitable for use in sustainable buildings. In contrast to other louvred ventilators, the Optima is completely thermally separated. Not only the louvres, but also the base gutter construction is thermally insulated, thereby combining the advantages of a louvred ventilator and the unique performance of a double flap ventilator.

The system is extremely airtight. With a pressure of 600 Pa, the system more than meets the requirements for Class 4 in accordance with BS EN 12207. The air leakage loss with a positive pressure difference of 100 Pa is 0.4 m³/hour/m². The Optima also performs well in other areas, it achieves high insulation values from 1.1 W/m²K, depending on the type and version. Water tightness testing up to 1050 Pa in accordance with BS EN 12208. The system has been tested and is certified in accordance with BS EN 12101-2 and is CE marked.

Features and benefits:

  • Multifunctional application (facade and flat roof application (0–15°).
  • Very large geometrical surface - up to 9.75 m².
  • Can be fully customized in louvre height and flange type to fit the exact specifications for optimal installation.
  • Fully thermally broken solution, with high insulation value.
  • High performance on air tightness (air leakage of 0.4 m³/h/m²).
  • Designed for LEED and BREEAM high performance buildings.

Applications:

Suitable for all buildings with LEED and BREEAM requirements or where primary thermally broken thermal insulation and superb airtightness is required.
