Gilberts delivers sympathetic services in Lake District

Published:  02 February, 2017

Gilberts, Blackpool, natural ventilation

Keswick’s Theatre by the Lake by the foreshore of Derwentwater at Keswick has recently seen the addition of a £700 000 cafe. Designed by architect Andreas, the concept is sympathetic to the building’s location, with wood, natural light and natural ventilation prevailing in the monopitch structure, which reaches 10.7 m at its highest point.

Gilberts Blackpool delivered the natural-ventilation strategy, with three Mistrale WHF75 flanged high-weather-performance louvres integrated at high level into the wall at the lowest point of the roof, behind the kitchen area.

Each louvre has Gilberts’ integrated VN75 volume control dampers. One of the louvres also includes an LPHW coil to make up air to the kitchen extract.

Mistrale 75 is designed to provide a smooth, accurate and stable airflow. The system attains a U-value of 096 W/m2/K with air leakage of less than 5 m3/h/m2. The 75 mm blade pitch of the core WHF louvres has Class A weatherability and a free ventilation area of 50%.
