How UfAC works – An introduction to underfloor air conditioning


This ebook from AET offers an introduction to the features and benefits of underfloor air conditioning

Underfloor air conditioning (UFAC) systems make use of the space beneath a raised access floor to create the air ventilation zone, eliminating the need for ceiling-based services and associated duct and pipework.

There are a number of benefits to using UFAC, including greater design freedom, having a single system for both heating and cooling, reduced maintenance and maximising the use of space. Eliminating ceiling-based services and ductwork can reduce building height by around 10% in new build projects and increase floor-to-ceiling heights in restricted spaces, helping to achieve British Council for Offices recommended standards.

AET provides a range of flexible and modular UFAC systems, including standard and bespoke hybrid configurations.

This ebook includes a product overview of the CAM-C system, a fully underfloor design ideal for maximising headroom in height-restricted buildings, and the CAM-V system, which allows complete freedom to maximise a floor plate.

It also includes a look at fan terminal units and accessories, such as raised access floors, air grilles and acoustic attenuators, as well as the different controls available, including the touchscreen, wall-mounted Flextouch, which controls fan speeds and monitors CO2, and the Flexmatic, which offers visual access and control of CAMs.

Finally, the ebook includes a look at selected projects in the UK, Europe, Africa and Asia.
