Guardian Glass chose Moffitt Corporation to design the ventilation system and supply the equipment for their new Float Glass plant in Mexico. This giant plant includes a warehouse, a glass kiln (lehr), and a utility area.
This building was designed to encompass a large space to surround the lehr. The size and high temperatures produced by the kiln make natural ventilation the ideal cooling method for this type of facility. Two very large Monovent natural ventilators were placed on the roof, and supply air was provided by a substantial number of wall louvers at ground level.
Hooded roof exhaust fans were installed at key “hot spots” around the building. These fans improve air movement in areas where natural ventilation may not otherwise reach. This ensures that the entire building stays cool and comfortable.
