climasystem one of the newer, trend-setting developments now bears the name
aquatherm black system
After only 3 years as system for room climatisation on the market, it has already received many awards and found international acceptance as the next phase of room comfort. From ceiling cooling in open plan offices to wall heating in family homes, and special applications such as mobile
heating and cooling elements, the possibilities are nearly unlimited.
- For wet and dry construction
- No draughts
- Dust reduction
- Simple control technique
- Thermal properties of the building are enhanced
- System extendable
- Quick installation thanks to high degree of prefabrication
- Even temperature distribution
- Safe connection techniques by thermal fusion
- Push-fit connection for ceiling elements
- Oxygen barrier
- Minimal construction thickness
- Greater architectural design freedom
- Energy saving
aquatherm black system is exclusively made from fusiolen® PP-R. The exceptional good welding properties and fusion, result in an homogeneous unit, offering a maximum in security and life span. aquatherm black system is connected by fusion welding. The pipe grids can be welded directly in parallel as well as with series connection.
Dry Wall Heating Element
With the new dry wall heating element aquatherm offers a product, which provides a quick and efficient installation. That means reduced construction time and cost savings.
Whether in new buildings or in refurbishing the aquatherm dry wall heating elements release high heat, which means a convenient environment without dust dispersing. Energy savings are possible due to a subjective feeling of warmth though the objective room temperature is lower.
The dry lining system consists of 12,5 mm thick system elements made of gypsum fibre with oxygen tight aquatherm black system grids. Assembly occurs with the smooth surface towards the room. After gluing the joints the elements can be painted, wallpapered, flagged or plastered. For simple assembly at the wall or window parapet various sizes of elements are available.
- Large heating surfaces controllable by heating circuits
- Energy saving by low mean heating temperature
- Quick and safe installation
Heating and Cooling
with the aquatherm black system
An individual´s comfort and efficiency directly depend on the basic environmental conditions of his surroundings. Working efficiency varies according to temperature with every cooling degree.
Incorrect controlled room temperature, noise interference or draught are responsible for inefficient room conditions and therefore unsatisfactory performances. In offices, commercial premises, meeting rooms, etc., aquatherm pipe grids have become increasingly more popular for heating and cooling of ceilings and walls.
The ingenious aquatherm black system delivers pleasant room conditions without noise and forced air movement. With this technology cooling or heating is simply controllable.
Automatic designed change-over of heated or chilled water completes this system; allowing for individual room control within a building management system.
aquatherm black system – due to its compact dimensions within – fits under the plaster or the dry-lined wall. Construction thickness including manifolds, mounting with the aquatherm black system rail and connections amounts to only 24.5 mm.
The pipe grids have rectangular manifolds, which can be interlinked.
This allows an easy connection e.g. according to the reverse return principle (Tichelmann). The water volume for the required thermal output is distributed via square pipes (12 mm/25m pipe per m2) within the grids.
The velocity of flow and the pressure drop are minimized. Velocity of flow for a surface area of approx. 10 m2 is below 0.3 m/s.
The aquatherm black system can be installed, in the case of suspended ceilings, in tile size modules, dry construction behind gypsum wall board or wet construction, embedded in wall and covered with plaster.
Even stud framed walls with gypsum board finishes are not a problem.
The low weight of only 2.5 kg/m2 (incl. water filling) does not effect the design of the ceiling element construction. The ceiling elements should include 30 mm of fibre glass insulation. Depending on their design, the pipe grids are connected by means of thermal welding or by pushfit couplings, and connected to the cooling- and heating water circuits.
