Natural ventilation of rooms is important for the health, comfort and performance of occupants and also significantly reduces building running costs by reducing energy consumption. Effective air flow is also paramount for meeting building regulations.
Natural ventilation controls are also available, including wind, rain and temperature sensors, humidity and CO2 monitors, remote controls, and time controlled opening and closing. They are designed to provide advanced switching options to control comfort ventilation for electrically opening rooflights. The controls are compatible with both modular and continuous rooflight ranges and all building types. Various options can be used in conjunction with each other.
Available options for ray.lux Glass rooflights:
Hinged Manual Spindle Opening
Hinged opening vents provide the maximum ventilation area to allow rapid air movement. The manual spindle operation can be opened to any point up to 300mm and is operated by a Winding Rod available separately in 1.5m, 2m, 3m or 4m lengths – please enquire for more details.
Hinged Electric Actuator Opening
Powered hinged opening vents provide the maximum ventilation area to allow rapid air movement opening to 200mm.
