Levolux designed, supplied and installed its Infiniti Timber Box Fin screening solution at the £44 million Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC) building at Cardiff University’s Innovation Campus.

The timber fins are virtually maintenance free and will be allowed to weather naturally as they develop an attractive silver-grey patina. Indeed, the timber fins were also selected for use inside the building, being used to form an architectural feature in the reception and circulation areas.
Levolux also provided its Ligniti Ventilation Louvres to screen plantroom areas at high level. Levolux’s Contour and High Performance Ventilation Louvres were utilised to provide an attractive, yet highly weather-resistant facade. Extruded aluminium louvres feature an effective ‘S’ shaped profile. This delivers the optimum performance, both in terms of airflow, resistance to wind and rain and their aesthetic quality.
The Ligniti Louvres were set at a pitch of 75mm and are incorporated into a number of sections extending up to 42 metres in length and 2.8 metres in height. The louvred facade at roof level is fitted with integral double louvred doors, to facilitate easy access to plant and equipment for routine servicing, maintenance and cleaning.
