Window ventilation.

Description

A range of acoustic window ventilators. Ten-year warranty.

DucoStrip Acoustic:

DucoStrip is a sound absorbing aluminium “through-the-frame” slot ventilator. The sound-absorbing module can be fitted either on the inside or the outside, or both sides for even better sound absorption.

Note: DucoStrip Acoustic is only suitable for windows in low-rise buildings (up to second floor).

DucoTop 60 SR AK:

Sitting on top of the window frame, the vent is almost invisible. It does not interfere with the designed U-value of the complete window. The integrity of the window frame and glazing is untouched. The DucoTop 60 'SR' sits on top of any style of window frame, unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (PVC-U), aluminium or timber. From 68 to 188 mm in depth, and creates no visual distraction to the window. It removes the fitting of a vent from the window manufacturing process. The self-regulating vent equalizes the airflow thus avoiding uncomfortable draughts.

DucoTop 60 SR AK+:

Sitting on top of the window frame, the vent is almost invisible. It does not interfere with the designed U-value of the complete window. The integrity of the window frame and glazing is untouched. The DucoTop 60 'SR' sits on top of any style of window frame, PVC-U, aluminium or timber. From 68 to 188 mm in depth, and creates no visual distraction to the window. It removes the fitting of a vent from the window manufacturing process. The self-regulating vent equalizes the airflow thus avoiding uncomfortable draughts. The DucoTop 60 'SR' range is further enhanced by the addition of the DucoTop 60 'SR' AK+ for locations with higher noise levels.

GlasMax SR:

An acoustic and thermally broken vent engineered for installation on glazing. The acoustic air inlet is suitable for low-level noise disturbance; can achieve up to 37 dB. Suited to high-rise applications up to 40 m in height.

MiniMax SR:

A self-regulating, acoustic vent specifically engineered for ‘unobtrusive’ compact fixing above a transom. Where it sits above a transom, it comes with an extended cowl, making it suitable for applications in curtain walling systems. The acoustic air inlet is suitable for applications in situations exposed to lower levels of noise disturbance. MiniMax SR series vents are particularly well suited for use in combination with DucoMax SR series acoustic vents as they have identical inside views. Vent height, built-in height and compact transom mounting are also equal.

SkyMax SR:

This self-regulating acoustic natural ventilation unit has been specially developed for high-rise building applications. The SkyMax 'SR' has been subjected to an exceptional series of tests and trials at a height of 50 metres. The efficiency of the SkyMax 'SR' has been further improved in the Cauberg - Huygen laboratories to offer hassle-free performance in applications up to 70 metres.
