Vertical Discharge Unit

A vertical discharge unit is generally fitted to rooves to ensure that fumes are released into the air, this unit is designed to automatically close when the fan is not running. The vertical expulsion of air helps in avoiding the recirculation of air that could potentially draw in contaminated or unconditioned air into the system, ensuring a more effective control of the indoor air quality and thermal comfort.

Our units are made from galvanised steel, and come in different sizes dependent on the fan size.

Vertical Discharge Unit

General Information:

Vertical discharge units are specialised equipment designed to expel air vertically upwards, often used in settings where horizontal space is limited or where it is preferable to direct airflow away from adjacent areas. These units are commonly deployed in commercial and industrial environments, such as in rooftop HVAC systems, where their vertical discharge design minimises the footprint of the equipment on the roof while efficiently distributing conditioned air or expelling heat and exhaust gases upwards into the atmosphere.

The design and operation of vertical discharge units are tailored to meet specific building requirements, incorporating features that enhance energy efficiency, such as variable speed fans and heat recovery systems. This orientation allows for the strategic placement of units to mitigate noise pollution and visual impact, especially in dense urban environments where space and aesthetics are significant considerations. Additionally, the vertical discharge mechanism facilitates the integration of these units into a building’s overall HVAC strategy, working in conjunction with other system components to optimise airflow patterns, reduce energy consumption, and maintain a comfortable indoor environment. Their adaptability and efficiency make vertical discharge units a practical and effective solution for a wide range of HVAC applications, addressing both spatial constraints and environmental control needs.
