From the main shaft, we figured out, are two more channels. Classical ventilation has two additional channels, oval or rectangular cross-section. The dimensions of the ventilation ducts as standard 130 and 125 mm. If you previously did not notice, that your house has ventilation, then look lattice boxes in the kitchen or lavatory, they will find there. The fresh oxygen supplied through them into the room, and unpleasant odors disappear.

  • The high level of noise isolation;
  • impermeability.
