Hybrid fan coil unit’s EcoBuild success

A hybrid fan coil unit developed by Airedale International Air Conditioning from a concept by Arup associate director, Roger Olsen (pictured), is claimed to address ‘the biggest complaints in comfort cooling’, including energy efficiency, draughts and dead spots, space claim of secondary ductwork, unit footprint, cluttered ceiling void services, and ‘restrictive access for maintenance and installation’.

Set for launch this summer, the Artus Hybrid Fan Coil Unit system was selected last month as joint winner, with Protomax Plastics’ Storm Board – ‘a sustainable alternative to plywood produced from mixed waste plastics’, in the Marks & Spencer Big Innovation Pitch finals at EcoBuild 2017 at London’s ExCeL. The Big Innovation Pitch stems from M&S’s ‘Plan A’ commitment, which encourages ‘responsible sourcing, reduced waste, and community support’. 

Arup and Airedale International Air Conditioning say the Artus hybrid low energy fan coil unit offers ‘a fullypackaged, plug-and-play, single-supplier system’. Benefits include self-access, reduced ceiling clutter, and minimised ceiling void heights, while with the unit fully packaged, there is no need for the specification of ancillary controls, valves, diffusers, or spigots.
