ATC Electrical and Mechanical our Irish Partners and exclusive distributor in Ireland, in conjunction with a local electrical wholesaler and contractor, has recently supplied the Vario range of mechanical fans by VORTICE to the University of Limerick, in order to prepare for a return of students to the classroom. The Vario mechanical ventilation fans were installed in the windows of classrooms and lecture halls to maximise the intake of fresh air and guard against rising levels of CO2.
Vario fans were chosen after extensive research and they were colour coded to match the exact RAL colour of the external windows and frames to blend in seamlessly with the external façade. Easy to install, Vario has low noise levels so was the ideal solution for a classroom situation where noise interruption causes problems. The fans are operated by CO2 sensors within the lecture halls so that the required air changes occur when needed and adequate ventilation is provided for occupants.
The University of Limerick was keen to improve the air quality within its buildings and to keep staff and students as safe as possible. Research has shown that the wrong temperatures, humidity, air pollution and CO2, can all impair learning. High rates of carbon dioxide are also known to cause drowsiness, loss of concentration and headaches, so for students at the University of Limerick the Vario fans will play an important part in providing a healthy learning experience.
