Barcol-Air are the European market leaders for chilled ceiling and specialist low energy air conditioning installations with the most varied of systems offered and installed in Europe and worldwide.
In the last 23 years Barcol-Air has offered bespoke energy solutions for offices, hotels and apartments based on chilled water systems with radiant cooling.
Barcol-Air takes on the design responsibility to ensure drawings are coordinated , hydraulic designs and cooling/heating capacities of all cooling panels/areas are accurate and self balancing techniques are employed so that balancing valves are not required thus reducing maintenance and controls costs. Barcol-Air produces actual chilled water designs and circuits to guarantee chilled ceiling outputs c/w ceiling grid layouts all coordinated to the project DWG architect drawings for final installation.
The use of relatively high temp chilled water systems (typically 16-19°C) creates large energy savings over conventional fan coil type operating temps with the obvious advantages of zero maintenance and coupled with a vav fresh air system where free cooling in temperate climates reducing chiller costs means the system is by far the most efficient in terms of ecological effect.
The Barcol-Air Hybrid system can operate up to 200W/m2 cooling and uses high temp chilled water to cool radiated panels but also to cool fresh air supply ducts utilising Barcol-Air's unique chilled elements system tried and tested over 20 years.
Recently Barcol-Air has supplied plasterboard chilled ceiling systems to the Shard building in London.
Barcol-Air has supplied its chilled ceilings to the prestigious "One Hyde Park" project in Knightsbridge London, with Britain's most expensive apartment. Barcol-Air designed all the run out pipework and hydraulic circuits for all the bedroom areas in all 4 towers and supplied high output chilled ceilings for plasterboard ceiling application giving silent, zero maintenance radiant cooling behind high quality finished ceilings.
