WINDCATCHER: Harnessing the environment for building ventilation

The WINDCATCHER is an energy free Natural Ventilation system encompassing the benefits of both top-down and passive stack ventilation. The system consists of four external louvre banks, to stop the ingress of precipitation, which are protected internally by TriLayer weather protection. The simple, but effective design of the system provides fresh air during the daytime as well as night-time cooling. Due to the flexibility of the WINDCATCHER, the system can be tailored to suit the needs of almost any area. The systems technological ability has been proven within schools, colleges, healthcare environments, commercial properties, as well as many other areas.

How does a WINDCATCHER CLASSIC work?

The main advantage of the WINDCATCHER Natural Ventilation system over other forms of Natural Ventilation is that it doesn’t matter which way the wind blows, the louvres on one side will always encapsulate the prevailing wind and turn that air movement down through 90°due to the internal dividers that split the system into four quadrants. Stack effect is achieved as a result of the difference between the air temperature inside and outside of a building - and the subsequent imbalance effect on air density and pressure gradient of the internal and external air masses results in the warm air rising up through the quadrants, dispersing to the atmosphere.
