Multi-service chilled beams achieve slimmer profile

Frenger multi-service chilled beams for this project in London are just 140 mm deep and operate below dewpoint to increase cooling capacity.

Frenger has supplied multi-service chilled beams for Saffron House in London that are just 140 mm deep. This listed building has minimal slab-to-slab height. As a speculative office development, it required exceptional heating and cooling capacities from the shallowest possible depth.

This requirement was achieved by coating the cooling/heating coils with Frenger’s Drpac technology, enabling these active beams to run below dewpoint and achieve 60% more cooling from a particular air supply. Chilled water is delivered at 9°C to deliver over 170 W/m2 with less than 2l/s/m2 of supply air.

These beams also provide 100% indirect lighting.
