Passive air ventilation

Postby roselath » Thu May 15, 2008 8:06 pm

Hi all, I'm coverting a single story barn with a vaulted ceiling and my architect has put a passive ventilation system from Glidevale into the Building Regs. I've spken to Glidevale and as I understand it their system requires 1.5 m of vertical space in between the air vent in the room and the exit point on the ridge.

As there is no ceiling in the rooms their solution won't work- what I need is a vent in the apex of the internal room linking directly to the exit vent on the roof.

ANY comments appreciated.
