Under-Floor Air Conditioning Systems for Use in Office Environments
Seminar, by FläktGroup UK Ltd
Under-floor air conditioning offers occupants of both closed- and open-plan offices environmental control over their individual work spaces. Ceiling voids become unnecessary. The system uses under-floor space rather than a ceiling void for air distribution and ducting. Buildings benefit from a reduced slab-to-slab height, potentially delivering additional floors for total build height. Original, or designed ceilings or vaulted spaces, can be created without compromising comfort.
