Focus on Cross Ventilation
Cross ventilation is one of the most effective forms of natural ventilation. Acoustics plays a key role in the design of a cross ventilated building as air must flow freely through the building, while maintaining privacy across partitions. Cross talk attenuators within partitions adjacent to circulation spaces allow cross ventilation, as well as provide privacy.
One of the drawbacks of ventilating through the corridor wall is the need for an exceptionally large bulk head to accommodate big, heavy attenuators. The NAT Vent Attenuator provides exceptional levels of cross talk separation. We’ve undertaken extensive research to understand the required levels of acoustic separation across these partitions. Depending on the air flow and the required level of acoustic separation, the NAT Vent Attenuator can be as slim as 600mm deep, and increased to 1200mm.
