AW System used:

Aralco 501 Louvers

Aralco Pyracoust ventilators

AW Louvers and Ventilation Limited have completed the design and supply of Aralco ventilators and louvers to both the concourse and the tower block of the Brunswick House project in the heart of Southampton. This development was a total refurbishment of a concrete framed existing structure and now gives a fresh new look to this student accommodation building.


Through a strong working relationship with facade contractors, LSC Facades Limited, AW Louvers and Ventilation were able to meet the challenging specification and site build programme requirements for both the extract louvers and the acoustic ventilators.


The Aralco Pyracoust acoustic ventilators was considered the best solution to achieve both the requirement for a 2500 mm2 free air movement and a sound reduction of 39Db whilst in the open position. This market leading product fitted easily into the outside of the window head section and was powder coated in RAL 7005 Matt to match the window profiles.


The Aralco 501 flanged louver was manufactured at AW Louvers factory in Tewkesbury and was the perfect aesthetically pleasing louver that could not only be fitted into the Kingspan panels but was also powder coated in the same Silver Metallic colour as the Kingspan panels. The louver was only 240 x 240mm in size but was still able to provide the necessary physical free area to allow for mechanical extract for each studio apartment.
