“I feel comfortable in this room.” You simply couldn't give building services designers a bigger compliment. But a whole raft of factors need to be taken into account to ensure (thermal) comfort.
A healthy indoor climate is about more than just ensuring virus-free air. The oxygen or CO2 concentration and air humidity need to be monitored.
The installation of chillers/heat pumps is considerably simplified by the use of the hydraulic box. Heating engineers can save themselves valuable design and installation time and the range of cooling solutions they can offer is finally extended with additional attractive products.
Grade H14 HEPA filters can now be retrofitted, on request, to enable Venkon fan coils (indoor recirculating air units) to help reduce the viral load in room air.
Kampmann supplies a wide range of Katherm trench systems, which have already been installed in innumerable projects.
The requirements are increasing to introduce cool air into high-ceilinged buildings and halls, as well as installing a warm air solution. The TOP C is the product of choice for this.
We have summarised answers to the most pressing questions relating to air conditioning and ventilation.
Air conditioning systems available on the market can essentially be divided into two groups DX or direct evaporation systems and Chilled water systems.
The air conditioning market has been growing at a rapid pace for some years now. A major sector of the market is dominated by direct evaporation systems, such as split air conditioning units or VRV/VRF systems.
It will mean important requirements for ventilation systems from 1 January 2016 that will be further extended from 2018.
Regulation (EU) No. 517/2014 on fluorinated greenhouse gases has been in place since 01 January 2015 and repeals Regulation (EU) No. 842/2006 on certain fluorinated greenhouse gases.
Due to the low noise emission, both systems are frequently chosen solutions for decentralised hotel air conditioning, but they both reveal in themselves advantages and disadvantages.
Beyond expectations: the luxury residence BEYOND by Geisel raises the bar. It is the most exclusive residence in Munich – and possibly even the most unusual.
A cosy atmosphere at 34 degrees – controlling large amounts of air cleverly. Euskirchen. A town with as many as 57,000 inhabitants. But without wanting to offend the town – if you don’t actually come from the Rhineland area, you do have to take a look to see where Euskirchen actually is.
Control and automation engineering is becoming increasingly important in the era of digitalisation. Kampmann keep pace with the times. Air moves. Or it doesn’t. And electricity? 1 = the current is flowing. 0 = the current is not flowing.
Ceiling cassettes are a classic for air conditioning office buildings, hotels, exhibition and sales rooms. And Kampmann’s KaCool D has counted among the leading products in this category for a long time now.
Bright prospects – the new Belvedere neighbourhood is being developed in the capital city of Austria.
Would you have known? Austria is the heaviest country in Europe. How is that measured? Put in simple terms, the Earth’s crust is “weighed”.
The classic Katherm QK is now supplemented by Katherm QK nano. The incentive for nano came from London: here, as in many export markets, the floor construction height varies between 400 millimetres in commercial buildings and merely 100 millimetres in residential buildings.
Kampmann incognito in the entrance areas of urban rooms. Millions of people have this feeling and this reflex. The feeling: a draught, for just a moment. The reflex: wipe your feet.
Many factors have an impact on whether we feel comfortable in a room. Dr Thorsten Wolterink, head of the FEC at Kampmann knows how to achieve that.
Slim, stunning, strong – the KaDeck raises the bar when it comes to ceiling air conditioning 160 millimetres. That is the construction height of the KaDeck, of the still new ceiling unit by Kampmann.
Planning catastrophes such as with the BER Airport can be prevented in the future. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is currently revolutionising planning processes in the construction trade.
Since 1st January, new statutory minimum requirements of the energy efficiency of air conditioning units have been in place. It goes without saying that trade chains are also affected – in new buildings and conversions, they have to adapt their ventilation-technical concept.
Every year, new pavilions by famous architects are exhibited at the Serpentine Gallery in London. Let’s zoom in: from the edge of outer space, we are looking down at Europe – to be more precise: at the British Isles.
The climate in hotel rooms is an ever-occurring reason for complaints by guests – an unavoidable situation. Hotel operators invest a lot of money to provide guests with a comfortable stay.
The global climate is changing – energy efficiency is an important factor in reducing CO2 emissions. Exactly my kind of climate. That is the corporate claim of Kampmann. It relates to the personal comfort climate that we create with the help of our products in any kind of room.
Valid as of March 2015: EN 16430 governs the measurement of performance on fan-supported trench heating systems and thus establishes at long last a comparability of these units. Even the cooling capacity can be measured.
