Norbord OSB

The Norbord OSB plant in Guntown, MS had a humidity problem. The hot humid air generated by the wood making process was damaging the building’s insulation and corroding the steel.The plant required a solution that would reduce heat, minimize the moisture, and stand up to the harsh conditions.

Colt Labyrinth natural ventilators Prevents the humid air from gathering at the ceiling Lowers the internal temperature and controls humidity throughout the plant A cooler and more comfortable work space

Moffitt was contacted by Norbord to design a solution to their ventilation problem. Moffitt determined that a natural ventilation system was the best way to encourage air movement. Placing five Colt Labyrinth natural ventilators on the roof would allow the dirty air to flow up and out of the building, and prevent the humid air from gathering at the ceiling. Not only does this fix the corrosion problem but it also lowers the internal temperature and controls humidity throughout the plant. As a result, the entire building is a cooler and more comfortable work space.
