Innovent have recently supplied a range of Halton AFA displacement terminals to the new Council Chambers Building in Kilmarnock. Working with East Ayrshire Council building services consulting engineers, we assisted in the design and selection for the displacement ventilation system. With comfort and acoustics being a priority for this very high-profile council building, displacement ventilation offered the solution which satisfied the strict design criteria the client and consultant were looking for.
The Halton AFA displacement terminals were located along the outside wall of the council chambers and were hidden behind a decorative stainless steel cover plate (see photograph). The units were fed via ductwork from below and the system was balanced using a Halton PRA conical iris damper which offered optimum balancing performance and low noise, ideal for this type of system.
