Trox has launched an active chilled beam that it says is suitable for new or existing buildings with low ceilings
Many older office buildings feature low floor to ceiling heights making it difficult to upgrade services to modern specifications. Called the DID632, the active chilled beam is 210m deep and can be used in buildings with floor to ceiling heights of 2.6m. The product is suitable for rooms with high cooling loads and has an output of up to 2,500W at a flow rate of 70l/s. The beam features adjustable blades, which reduce the velocity of air movement in the occupied area and control the air discharge. The beam can be used with both two pipe cooling or four pipe heating and cooling systems. The beams are available in eight different lengths, each with four different nozzle options.
