As part of the detailed plantroom calculation and layout program, Cyspace can also auto calculate your equipment and its associated ventilation requirements based on BS6644 and BS5410-2 according to the equipment and fuel type.
The ventilation dimensions can also be fixed by the user if required as shown below;
Simply click Basis, and toggle to select user. Then fix your high and low-level dimensions.
Different types of boiler vents are also included in the program and they include:
Natural HL and Natural LL
A pair of natural ventilation louvers, one at high level and the other at low level.
Natural HL and Mechanical LL
A combination of natural ventilation at high level and mechanical ventilation vent fan at low.
Mechanical HL and Mechanical LL
A pair of mechanical vent fans, one at high and the other at low.
Assumes door area is louvered providing both high and low-level vent. This requires a louvred door to be defined on the vent surface.
