Operable Louvre / Natural Smoke and Heat exhaust Ventilator

Louvreclad’s Galaxy Series® is a natural ventilation and smoke and heat exhaust louvred ventilator that provides a ready-made solution for both natural, smoke and heat ventilation purposes.

The Galaxy Series® has been Designed, engineered and CSIRO tested, to provide effective natural ventilation and failsafe smoke and heat ventilation. Fabricated from steel, aluminium or stainless steel, the Galaxy Series natural ventilator is a robust system constructed to withstand the most demanding of environments including Category C and D Cyclone Regions. With the ability to operate at the highest levels of reliability and safety while achieving complete weather performance provides peace-of mind for designers, builders and most of all occupants.

This Natural/Smoke and Heat operable louvred vent design is typically operated via spring return failsafe actuators and thermal links to enable full fail-safe operation as part of your passive smoke and heat ventilation solution.
Standard electric actuators and pneumatic cylinders operation is also available with manual operation available if easily accessible from behind.
Galaxy Series natural ventilation system boasts a Free Open Area of 87% and coefficient of discharge of 0.831 providing highly effective natural and smoke venting performance.
