In part 1 of our Silverline series, we gave a general overview of what Triumph’s Silverline building systems are all about, including:
- General features
- Common industries and uses
- How to implement Silverline
The overview should give newcomers to Silverline a pretty good idea of what to expect from Silverline and how these modular buildings set themselves apart from the competition.
However, to really understand the beauty of Silverline, we’ll need to discuss how our healthy building design features can benefit industries across the board. This is something that was briefly touched upon in part 1, but we’re going to go a little more in-depth here.
So, what are the Silverline healthy building design specifications that we’re referring to?
There are four main ones:
- Improved air quality/ventilation
- Thermal control
- Noise control
- Moisture control
Let’s discuss why these are important to businesses and organizations in any industry.
Improved Air Quality and Ventilation
It should be a given that indoor air quality needs to be a top priority in modular construction. For those with respiratory issues, buildings without proper ventilation can be a challenge. Even small children and the elderly can be susceptible to respiratory issues due to poor air quality.
We ensure that our Silverline building systems exceed air quality expectations with two main practices:
- The conscious selection of healthful building materials – Certain design elements, such as fully operable windows which open for fresh air, are examples of materials that improve air quality and ventilation
- Increased ventilation throughout our modular buildings – A Silverline single wide is capable of completely recycling the air within 30 minutes.
Because of these practices, Triumph ensures that our Silverline buildings provide the highest quality air and accommodate even those with respiratory illnesses, such as asthma.
Proper thermal control is a must-have for modular spaces, regardless of their use.
For example, imagine being in a modular classroom. It’s blistering hot and you’re meant to try and concentrate despite the uncontrollably high temperature. Sounds unpleasant, to say the least.
In some cases, improper temperature control can actually render a modular building completely useless.
Thankfully, through careful material selection and insulation quality, Triumph’s Silverline building systems provide essential thermal control in order to avoid these scenarios. Rigid insulation board in the exterior walls, roof, and floor combined with DIG windows provide excellent thermal control. With this, you’ll be able to rest assured that your modular building can be used exactly the way you need it to be used.
Typical modular buildings have been plagued with moisture control issues for ages. And what do these moisture control problems cause?
That’s right. Mold.
No matter what industry you find yourself in, dealing with mold would be completely detrimental to your business or organization. And without proper moisture control, that’s exactly the problem you’ll find yourself dealing with.
Triumph’s combination of careful material selection and conscious building design provides essential moisture control to our Silverline building systems. To keep moisture out, Silverline uses both EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) roofing and Tyvek exterior wall vapor barrier. You can rest assured that you won’t be dealing with mold or moisture-related problems of any kind.
Add to this state-of-the-art ventilation, and you will be well protected against moisture in Silverline buildings.
Ample lighting is another important aspect of healthy building design.
No matter what industry your business is in, your modular building needs to have sufficient lighting in order for you to get the job done. Not only does it improve visibility, but it’s also an issue of comfort. If your building is going to be occupied by workers or staff for the better part of an entire day, you’ll want a building with comfortable, natural lighting.
To ensure optimal lighting, Triumph’s Silverline series modular buildings combine an open floor plan with a sufficient amount of windows dispersed around the structure to allow as much natural light in as possible.
Healthy Building Design is Crucial to Success in Modular Construction
In order to have the best experience with modular construction, regardless of industry, these four aspects of healthy building design need to be considered. All four combine to provide a quality, premium modular building.
Thankfully, with Triumph’s Silverline building systems, we’ve covered these for you. No guesswork needed. You can have a worry-free experience knowing you’ve chosen a modular provider with healthy building design features at the top of the priority list.
