PRODUCT FINDER Fresh air and quiet
In any large, busy building, noise transfer from one area to another has always been a problem- but no more, with a revolutionary yet simple product by Passivent developed in association with Arup.
SoundScoop combines natural
ventilation with noise attenuation. It significantly reduces sound transmission from one area to another, whilst enabling low resistance airflow which is essential in naturally ventilated buildings. This can help reduction in energy consumption as part of the continuing drive for zero carbon buildings, without compromising acoustic performance targets as described in British Standards and Building Bulletins. SoundScoop is positioned at high level in the partition/wall
between two internal spaces, enabling natural air movement with minimal pressure drop. A patented sound absorbing lining optimises attenuation of mid frequency sound, typically the most problematic.
Accredited laboratory testing has
demonstrated that an acoustic performance of up to Dnew44 can be realised. SoundScoop’s innovative design of an ABS sleeve with foam lining enables it to be flat-packed for easy transportation, with 16 product models available to suit most situations. Further enhancing its green credentials, SoundScoop is manufactured from 100% recycled ABS and recycled foam.

New from Delmatic
The new Micro Multisensor from Delmatic is the smallest addressable multisensor on the market providing presence detection, absence detection and daylight-linking. It also accepts user switching, dimming and scene-set commands via an integral infra-red receiver and receives temperature and set-point data for integrated control of HVAC.
The unit is radical not only in size but also in operation,
offering the perfect solution for a range of applications and variety of installation approaches. The Micro Multisensor plugs into ceiling-mounted modules, daisy-chains on a common bus and connects directly to a Dali buswire.
Designed to optimise energy efficiency and sustainability, Delmatic’s Micro Multisensor combines passive infra-red presence and absence detection with daylight linked dimming, so that lighting is related to occupation as well as the extent of daylight contribution.
The Micro Multisensor includes an infra-red receiver that
enables users to adjust lighting levels to suit their individual preference via a personal infra-red transmitter. The Micro Multisensor also accepts room temperature and temperature set-point data from infra-red thermostats and Delmatic smart touchpads enabling lighting, heating and cooling energy to be linked to occupancy.

A UK first from glow-worm
Glow-worm is introducing a revolutionary new domestic heating system, which uses hybrid renewable technology to provide homeowners with a heating system that will automatically choose the most cost effective method of heating their home. The unique Glow-worm Clearly
Hybrid system is the first innovation in the UK heating market that couple’s renewable and traditional energy sources to offer homeowners a heating system that is environmentally conscious and cost efficient for domestic heating and hot water. Clearly Hybrid uses its advanced control system to automatically choose when to use low carbon renewable energy from the heat pump or traditional energy from the high efficiency boiler depending upon which source provides the most cost effective option, based on your customers heating requirements, energy tariff and outside temperature. Clearly Hybrid enables installers, house builders and social housing providers to offer heating and hot water systems marrying traditional and renewable technology, optimising system running cost and reducing the carbon footprint of the user. Thanks to the advanced design, homeowners can take a step into renewable technology heating, whilst having the comfort and security of their traditional boiler and familiar controls in their home.
Rada’s new timed flow controls
Rada has brought out an improved range of Timed Flow controls that will help specifiers and facilities managers meet the increasingly stringent rules governing both energy and water consumption.
The latest models combine the best of contemporary design with the rugged practicality needed for the most demanding applications - every product in the range has undergone a rigorous 250,000 on/off test cycle. Ease of maintenance (a crucial factor in minimising downtime and costs) is guaranteed with an all-in-one cartridge. Importantly, each model enables the flow rate to be adjusted to meet various benchmarks for water and energy consumption, such as those laid out in BREEAM. The BREEAM Water Use Benchmark says that in the best of buildings water consumption is less than 1.5m3 worst would be 4.5m3
per person per year but in the or more. This range of timed flow
controls will enable compliance with BREEAM (and other benchmarks) in a wide range of conditions and applications. The hand washing range of taps is grouped into Timed Flow, Timed Flow Plus and Timed Flow Select to reflect their added specifications.
New from Climaveneta
Climaveneta now provides simultaneous heating and cooling, multi-functional outdoor units over 900kW. The Integra range is an intelligent four-pipe system able to generate both hot and chilled water in the same building. The four-pipe configuration also enables heat to be redistributed around the building, extracting heat where cooling is required and delivering it to areas requiring heating, thus improving overall energy efficiency.
As such, Integra is ideally
suited for buildings with variation in solar and internal heat gains through the day, typically offering around 40 % reduction in primary energy consumption compared to a conventional boiler and chiller combination. The system is highly responsive to changing heating and cooling loads, with the ability to control the two hydronic circuits independently of each other in response to the precise requirements of each conditioned space. Integra units are available in air-cooled and water-cooled configurations with cooling capacities from 36kW to 924kW and with a choice of scroll, screw or inverter screw compressors. In addition to the energy savings, Integra enables significant cost savings through reducing the amount of central plant (compared to boiler + chiller) and the time required for installation.
Condair Mk5 from JS
JS Humidifiers is launching the Condair Mk5 resistive steam humidifier, offering close
humidity control and maintenance costs that can be up to 65% less than electrode boiler humidifiers. Unlike electrode boiler humidifiers, which require replaceable boiling cylinders when scale builds up inside, the Condair Mk5 manages scale so that it’s easy to remove and eliminates the need for expensive disposable boiling cylinders. Scale that forms on the Condair Mk5’s heating elements is detached during normal operation. It falls down into the scale collector tank at the bottom of the unit, which is easy to drain and empty. This makes the Condair Mk5 very simple and economic to maintain and reduces downtime. The Condair Mk5 can operate on a wide range of water qualities and will deliver ±1%RH control when used with reverse osmosis water. Sizes range from 5kg/hr to 80kg/hr with 0-100% modulation. Construction quality is very high and features an extremely robust CrNi stainless steel heating cylinder, incoloy heating elements and a steel powder coated case.
The control panel has an ergonomic keypad and backlit
display that shows operational status, fault and service requirements.
