Developed to enable underfloor air conditioning to be delivered using a 150 mm-deep floor void is this slimline version of AET’s Fresh Air Module.

Advanced Ergonomic Technologies has introduced a slimline version of its Fresh Air Module (FAM) — an integral component of its Flexible Space Concept, which comprises Hiross underfloor air conditioning, raised access flooring and demountable partitioning systems.

This slimline module enables such underfloor air conditioning to be provided for refurbishment projects with restricted floor-to-ceiling heights.

Recessed into the floor void, the slimline FAM draws fresh air into the floor void plenum, which is mixed with return air and conditioned by Hiross Fan Tile Units before delivery into the space above. This Flexible Space System can be installed into a 150 mm-deep floor void.

The whole plenum under a raised access floor performs the function of ductwork, with each floor divided into a number of zones depending on the potential use and occupancy density of each area. Each zone is supplied with chilled or warm air by a conditioned-air module. The underfloor void is split into supply and return plena using airtight baffles that can easily be relocated.

AET has over 2 million m2 of reference projects workwide.
