When decorating buildings with a large area, there is complexity in embellishing ventilation outlets. While in the case of roofing structures, it can be resolved quite easily, decorating wall air intakes and similar systems may require significant investments and labor.
One of the most popular recent solutions is the installation of ventilated blinds facade panels. They possess sufficient strength and resistance to external factors while not obstructing ventilation. A brief overview of the practice of using blinds panels in air duct decoration will be discussed in our article.
Ventilation outlets are used for air intake or the expulsion of exhaust air from ventilation passages within the premises. In large buildings, such as commercial or industrial facilities, warehouses, and residential multi-apartment complexes, the outlet area can be substantial, and therefore, the construction requires treatment considering several factors.
Decorating a ventilation duct should address several tasks:
Another aspect often overlooked by construction manufacturers is the external appearance of the ventilation outlet treatment. The structure should harmonize with the facade finish while not being too conspicuous or drawing unnecessary attention. From this perspective, the ideal solution would be blinds facade panels, the construction of which we will examine in detail in the next section.
During the installation of a ventilated facade, the building is adorned with lightweight metal panels affixed to a supporting frame. For the decoration of air ducts, ventilation outlets, air intake shafts, and other objects with high air permeability requirements, blinds panels are used.
The panel construction is quite simple:
Like regular facade panels, blinds panels are straightforward to install. They are mounted on the frame opposite the ventilation outlet, providing concealment and protection while not obstructing the free airflow.
The use of blinds panels can be an optimal solution for decorating ventilation shaft outlets. Such constructions are most justified when placing ventilation passages on building facades and other visible surfaces.
The advantages of this approach are evident:
The lightweight of each panel is also an advantage, as it does not impose additional loads on the building’s structural elements. The frame around the ventilation passage perimeter also does not require reinforcement; standard components can be used without fear of damage or deformation.
There are several solutions available in the market for treating the facade outlets of ventilation systems. However, from the perspective of aesthetics, reliability, and practicality, blinds panels will be the optimal choice.
