Daikin Europe’s Fully Flat Cassette – Design & Genius in one

Climate Control - Air Conditioning - Split Systems - Ventilation Systems

Daikin Office

Daikin Europe has launched the Fully Flat Cassette for its Sky Air and VRV commercial climate control systems. This new indoor unit has an iconic and unique design, providing high energy efficiency and comfort levels.

Combining design with function
The Fully Flat Cassette is the first commercial indoor unit developed specifically for the European market. The cassette’s unique styling means it blends seamlessly with modern commercial building interiors and is the first to fit completely within a standard European ceiling tile, enabling lights, speakers and sprinklers to be installed in adjoining panels.

Available in white or white and silver, the Fully Flat Cassette combines design with function perfectly, with its flush fit, four-way air distribution and optional intelligent sensors that ensure it meets the highest demands of architectural design, while delivering excellent comfort and exceptional seasonal energy efficiency (up to A+).

Sensor-driven comfort – easily controlled
The Fully Flat Cassette can be fitted with an optional intelligent sensor kit, including a presence sensor and floor sensor, to further improve efficiency and comfort.

The presence sensor can reduce energy consumption by up to 27% by switching the unit off when nobody is in the room. The sensor also adjusts the air flow direction depending on where people are to ensure comfort throughout the room.

As hot air rises the natural temperature distribution in a room means that it is warmer near the ceiling. The floor sensor detects the temperature difference between the floor and the ceiling and re-directs air flow to ensure a more even temperature distribution.

Improving comfort and air quality - quietly
The Fully Flat Cassette’s 25dBA sound pressure level makes it one of the quietest on the market. In addition to the optional presence and floor sensors, it has a number of automated functions designed to enhance occupants’ comfort. For example, the Fully Flat Cassette has advanced filters to remove dust particles to ensure high levels of air quality. The system is also able to reduce humidity levels, without varying room temperature.

A flexible solution for modern building design
Modern commercial buildings are designed to be flexible, allowing businesses to reconfigure spaces using temporary and permanent partitions. However, this can mean that indoor units end up close to a partition or in a corner, creating problems with air flow.

The Fully Flat Cassette’s four flaps can be opened and closed easily using the wired remote controller to redirect air flow as required, avoiding this potential issue, providing increased design flexibility for architects and reducing potentially costly issues for building owners when it comes to interior refurbishment.

Reducing environmental impact
Architects and building engineers increasingly have to design climate control systems to meet ever-tightening environmental legislation. The Fully Flat Cassette, which can be used with Daikin’s class-leading Sky Air Seasonal Smart (model FFQ-C) and VRV systems (model FXZQ-A) cuts energy use dramatically and reduces carbon emissions.

Daikin’s new Fully Flat Cassette – Design and Genius in one
With the launch of the Fully Flat Cassette, Daikin is once again leading the way in the design and technology of climate control systems. The Fully Flat Cassette’s iconic design makes it suitable for any contemporary commercial space, without compromising on comfort levels, air quality and energy efficiency.

Whether it is part of a Sky Air or VRV system, the new range offers architects, building engineering consultants, installers, building owners and businesses a flexible and stylish solution to climate control.

Daikin products are distributed in the UK by Daikin Airconditioning UK Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Daikin Europe NV, and Space Airconditioning plc, the largest independent Daikin distributor.
