For the development of the think tank vetroCUBE, flexibility was a priority in the specifications. The think tank should be independent of the building structure and used where it is needed. The think tank should become self-sufficient. An elementary prerequisite for this independence is the integrated ventilation of the room in room system. The think tank does NOT have to be connected to the ventilation system of the building. The capacity of the integrated ventilation system is 60 m³/h per person. The fan runs very quietly and emits only 35dB. The volume flow rate is adjusted to the size of the think tank and to the number of people who are to use the room in room system at the same time.

- System ventilation
- Ventilation very quiet max. 35 dB
- Volume flow min. 60m³/h and person
- Maintenance-free components
- Automated ventilation through presence detector
- Ventilation individually adjustable via control panel
- After time-of-use phase Switch back to default setting
- thermally optimized flow through

- no draughts
- warmer exhaust air via the system ceiling
- cooler supply air via plinth area solid walls
- connection to on-site ventilation system on request
The Think Tank's own ventilation system ensures the supply of fresh air. An acoustically optimised fan box is located on the ceiling. The exhaust air is led to the outside via two shadow gaps to the right and left of the flush LED luminaire in the ceiling element of the think tank. The fan box collects heated and used air. The supply air is secured via the solid wall elements of the think tank. Airflow openings close to the floor allow fresh air to flow in from cooler air layers. This results in optimum thermal ventilation of the think tank. The entire system is acoustically decoupled on the one hand, so that sound insulation of 37 dB is guaranteed. On the other hand, the fan box is so quiet and emits a maximum of 35 dB. This results in optimum thermal ventilation of the think tank.
It is ensured that the ventilation works "silently" on the one hand and that the sound insulation of the think tank does not suffer on the other. The entire system is acoustically decoupled so that sound insulation of 37 dB is guaranteed. On the other hand, the fan box is very quiet and emits a maximum of 35 dB. The ventilation system is maintenance-free. There are no air filters or other components to be replaced or maintained. After all, the air has the same quality as that which the colleagues breathe in the open space, so that filters, for example, are obsolete and would unnecessarily increase the air resistance.
Ventilation control is automated. A presence detector is integrated in the system ceiling. It switches on the ventilation (also the light) when entering the think tank. The ventilation then conveys at least 60 m³/h and person. Now the user can adjust the ventilation individually. For example, the ventilation can be temporarily adjusted to twice the volume flow (air shower). Within a time window of 5 minutes, the ventilation falls back to normal performance in order to run as quietly as possible. At the end of the utilisation phase, after leaving the think tank, the ventilation switches to stand-by with a follow-up time of approx. 10 minutes. The stand-by mode then only delivers a minimum quantity (approx. 50 m³/h) to keep the think tank "fresh". At night, between 10:00 pm and 6:00 am the ventilation switches off completely. All parameters can be individually changed by a stored PIN function.
If the building can offer on-site ventilation at the planned parking spaces, it is also possible to connect the think tank to the building's own ventilation system. Supply air pipes can be connected via corresponding cut-outs in the system ceiling. The exhaust air can be passively discharged via the previously described overflow openings of the solid walls. If the size of the room in room unit permits this (distance between supply air opening and exhaust air opening), both connections can be made via the ceiling. This variant makes sense above all if there is a requirement to supply the room with fresh, filtered and possibly cooled air.
