The operation of the ceiling
The ‘engine’ of the PareauLux climate ceiling system consists of elements of finely meshed expanded metal on which copper pipe grinders are soldered. In these so-called climate elements, cold or hot water is supplied, depending on whether there is a need for cooling or heating in the room. The heat exchange takes place on the basis of a combination of radiation and convection, which is experienced as very pleasant. This in contrast to so-called all-air or convective systems, such as fan convectors or split units, where energy transfer takes place exclusively by means of air. In climate ceilings, the air supply is determined on the basis of the need for fresh air and not the required cooling capacity. The air circulation in the room is therefore lower than with convective systems and the risk of draft is minimal. The temperature is adjustable per room or control area.
The benefits at a glance
Benefits of a climate ceiling
• Climate ceilings can be adapted to the modulation of the building.
• The climate technology is non-visible integrated in the ceiling.
• The ceiling forms a distinctive part of the total architecture.
• Stylish integration with built-in components such as lighting and air vents.
USER / BUILDING OWNER
• Low operating costs:
- Low energy costs
- Maintenance-free system.
• Long service life (> 20 years).
• Positive influence on sustainability certifications like BREEAM.
THE WORK CLIMATE
• Always a comfortable and even temperature due to radiation and high cooling and heating capacity.
• Low air speeds and therefore no draft and dust displacement.
• High acoustic comfort; quiet system and pleasant acoustics due to the soundabsorbing capacity of the ceiling.
• The possibility of controlling room temperature on an individual basis.
SUSTAINABILITY OF A CLIMATE PATCH
Climate ceilings are energy-efficient. The for cooling and heating required water temperatures are perfectly in line with sustainable generation systems such as heat pumps and other sources and also have a positive influence on the efficiency of heat and cold generation systems in general. This results in a substantial reduction in energy costs compared to conventional cooling and heating methods. Not only financially attractive, but also beneficial for the environment. Climate ceilings are in line with the integration of
sustainability in society and in particular within the labor process. Employees’ health and well-being are paramount because they are the most important capital of a company. The fight for good staff, the fascination and binding of millennials requires another type of accommodation and process approach.
SUSTAINABILITY OF INTECO CLIMATE SYSTEMS
The materials that are part of the Inteco climate system are of a high quality level so that a long life is guaranteed. As a result, Inteco ceiling applications run parallel with the lifecycle of a building. In addition, when designing our products and the choice of materials, we take into account life after use, ie the circular economy. Within our own R&D department maximizing the value retention of the components is an important item. We do this by working on technical innovations such as using natural materials or improving the recyclability of a product. The production process of Inteco is ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 certified.
Two top players join forces for an ultimate comfort experience.
The PareauLux panel climate ceilings have been created through a collaboration of two top players in the (climate) ceiling industry. Hunter Douglas for the distinctive design and material use of the panels and Inteco for the innovative climate system with an extremely high cooling capacity. With this product you are assured of a comfort experience in the widest sense of the word. Read more on this unique cooperation.
