REHAU has just launched a new chilled ceiling system designed to provide a cost effective and energy efficient heating and cooling solution in commercial environments with suspended ceilings.
REHAU CoolBoard is the first one piece system in the UK with polymer pipework pre-embedded into plasterboard panels. It features pre-drilled fixing holes to make it fast and easy to install and offers a simple and permanent jointing system.
REHAU CoolBoard comprises standard gypsum plasterboard panels with grooves milled into them to accommodate loops of pre-integrated 10mm RAUTHERM PE-Xa pipework.
These boards are supplied pre-assembled with the pipe secured in pre-routed grooves and come complete with fittings to secure the boards to the suspended ceiling hardware.
The pipe tails from the boards are connected together using the renowned REHAU EVERLOC compression sleeve fittings which guarantee no leaks, then onto a manifold system where the supply of warm or chilled water is circulated through the panels.
The standard REHAU CoolBoard with a cooling capacity of up to 65W/sqm², is designed for use in office environments, while the high performance version featuring graphite particles embedded in the board, achieves a cooling capacity of up to 75W/sqm.
