According to the EU, buildings are responsible for 40 per cent of all energy consumption in member states. Ventilation is one important contributing factor and in any building, whether it be a school, a commercial property or a private house, the ventilation system constitutes approximately 30 per cent of the total energy consumption.
Ventilation requires energy to work but poorly functioning systems often lead to unnecessarily high consumption. Duct systems that have not been assembled in a correct manner or components that do not fit are reoccurring problems that result in air leakage and high costs. The obvious way to minimise wasteful consumption is to develop air-tight ventilation systems. This is a priority for ventilation manufacturer Lindab.
The highest standard of airtightness
For several years, Lindab Safe and Lindab Safe Click, have been the circular duct systems of choice on the market. Both systems meet the highest standard of airtightness or what we refer to as class D. The airtightness classification stretches from A to D where every step represents airtightness that is three times better than the former.
However, to raise the standards in the industry and as part of their ’Good Thinking’ philosophy, Lindab want to do more.
Certification – a push for the entire ventilation industry
The market-leading circular duct systems Lindab Safe and Lindab Safe Click have been certified for strength and leakage according to the toughest tightness class D by Eurovent.
Lindab is the first company in Europe to receive such a certificate for a duct system from the renowned organisation.
”We are delighted by the news. The certification is an acknowledgement of Lindab as a leading provider of modern indoor climate solutions, but also a milestone that will hopefully raise the overall standard of production in the ventilation industry”, says Torbjörn Bruzelius, Strategic Product Manager for Lindab Group.
The certification is a reminder that high-standard ventilation solutions are a necessity in our efforts to reduce energy consumption and minimise strain on the environment.
