Growing interest in schools' indoor climate
Lindab Pascal provides demand controlled, energy efficient ventilation that measures the room occupancy and adjusts the air flow accordingly via presence sensors and C02 sensors.
St. Michael School
In Denmark, there is a growing interest in improving the indoor climate in the country’s schools and institutions. St. Michael’s School in Kolding is the latest in a series of schools that have chosen to install a demand-controlled and energy efficient Lindab Pascal ventilation system. “Good ventilation is simply a good investment in the future of our children,” says headteacher Jette Bonde Mikkelsen at St. Michael’s.
Energy optimised and reliable solution
In schools and institutions, where the premises can go from being empty to suddenly accommodating 25 people or more, flexible and energy-optimised ventilation that provides a constant good indoor climate is crucial. “Lindab Pascal is a very good school solution, as it can regulate the air flow completely as needed and keep the CO2 levels down,” says John Harboe of Airteam, who has installed the Pascal solution at St. Michael’s School. Lindab Pascal is a so-called Demand Controlled Ventilation (DCV) system, which is basically temperature controlled, but which also measures the room occupancy and adjusts the air flow accordingly via presence sensors and CO2 sensors. Many old ventilation systems are either on or off, while Pascal is always at an operating level that provides optimal and energy-efficient ventilation.
Clearly increasing demand
Lindab sees a clear increase in demand for demand controlled ventilation in schools. “In the last 5-10 years, schools’ interest in our ventilation solutions have increased significantly,” says Stephan Jensen, sales engineer at Lindab. “The building regulations are moving towards less energy consumption, which is why several schools are choosing an energy efficient and reliable solution like our Lindab Pascal” continues Stephan. Lindab’s Pascal delivery at St. Michael’s includes control components Regula Master and Regula Combi, VRU air regulators, LCP supply air diffusers, exhaust air fittings and a complete air duct system including silencers.
