Fläkt Woods - A Fresh Approach to Ecobuild from Fläkt Woods (Stand S1618)

Renewable Heating - Heat Pumps - Heating Systems - Cooling Systems

Flakt The Green Agenda

Fläkt Woods will be showcasing its latest range of ventilation products at Ecobuild 2013 - the world’s biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment.

As part of the company’s Green Agenda, the interactive stand (S1618, ExCeL, London 5-7 March 2013) will highlight a ‘Roof to Room’ philosophy and holistic approach to ventilation system design. This will encompass the launch of two new pioneering products from the FreeFlow range of natural ventilation, plus the world’s first ‘active’ room diffusers – Optimix.

Fläkt Woods will also be displaying its highly efficient e3co Crown and e3co Star energy recovery units (ERU), as well as the latest window actuators and state-of-the-art control systems.

Following its successful attendance at Ecobuild last year, the products displayed on Fläkt Woods’ freshly designed stand will help specifiers and building services engineers expand their knowledge of ventilation systems, as well as demonstrate a passive approach to system design. This is spearheaded by the FreeFlow range of natural ventilation products which includes ground-breaking ‘pop-up’ air stacks, intelligent fixed wind turrets, rotating wind cowls, specialist ventilation turrets and solar shading systems. These provide continuous natural ventilation and heat management to achieve appropriate standards of indoor air quality while reducing a building’s CO2 emissions.

With its official launch at Ecobuild 2013, Optimix is an ‘active’ diffuser that incorporates a newly designed actuator to regulate the air flow and air throw. The unit is capable of delivering a pattern of air flow that is independent of air volume - significantly reducing draughts and noise while maintaining the comfort levels of room occupants, no matter how many are in the room. The Optimix can also be used as a combined VAV and diffuser by changing of the actuator to display airflow, this means that one product is suitable for two distinct applications.

Finally on show is the e3co Crown ERU which captures the energy contained in exhausted air and recovers it to provide additional heating and/or cooling for a building, reducing the requirements of the main plant. It also has a thermal efficiency of over 90% - an improvement of over 35% on commonly used heat recovery products on the market.

Allan Hurdle, Managing Director, Fläkt Woods said: “Ecobuild is now established as the exhibition to attend if you have even a passing interest in sustainable building and construction. Of course, we’ve been developing technologies for years which help specifiers and building services engineers optimise energy efficiency and help meet new rules and regulations, so we are sure the new ventilation system products on show this year will provide invaluable information to all our visitors.”
