One (1) Labyrinth Natural Ventilator - 14’ × 75’
Three (3) Labyrinth Natural Ventilators - 14’ x 25’
Experiencing high-temperatures and stagnant air Moffitt Corporation was called to help Evonik Stockhausen find a solution to their ventilation problem. Located in Garyville, LA, this chemical factory produces a range of products.
The problem was due to lack of airflow within the building. Exhaust fans placed on the wall and roof were not effectively venting the air, leaving warm air trapped at the roof and cool air only moving next to the building walls.
A double Labyrinth roof vent was installed at ridge of the roof and additional Labyrinth units were placed in other key locations on the rooftop. These Natural Ventilators allowed the heat to escape the building; preventing air from getting trapped and increasing air-flow throughout the facility.
Moffitt provided a complete turn-key solution for this facility designing the system, fabricating the Labyrinth units, and assembling them in place. The system was quickly installed. It was finished in time to weather the 20 inches of rain and 80 mph winds of Hurricane Isaac. Over the the three days in August 2012, the Labyrinth units experienced no rain infiltration or damage despite torrential rain and high winds.
