AET Flexible Space System Under Floor Air ConditioningAET Flexible Space

AET Flexible Space System

Under Floor Air Conditioning (UFAC) systems make use of a raised access floor to provide the air ventilation duct, eliminating the need for traditional ceiling based services.

The system can create quality indoor environments and comfortable work space for commercial applications.  See how it works…

The whole plenum under the building’s raised access floor becomes the “duct”, with each floor divided into a number of zones depending on the potential use and occupancy density of the area. Each zone is supplied with chilled or warmed air by a conditioned air module (CAM). The underfloor void is split into supply and return air plena using easily relocatable, airtight baffle. The conditioned air is delivered into the space using a recessed (Fantile) or floor standing fan terminal.  Air travels back to the CAM for re-conditioning via return air grilles located over the return plenum

System Choice

AET Flexible Space offers a variety of standard configurations as well as bespoke hybrid solutions. Zonal systems use downflow units (CAM-C or CAM-V) and air terminals (Fantile).

1) CAM-C: zonal system: under floor supply, under floor return
2) CAM-V: zonal system: under floor supply, high level return
