Mumbai, February 26, 2016: Schneider Electric India - the global specialist in Energy Management and Automation today launched their first B2C product ‘Under Floor Air Distribution System’ (UFAD) at Acrex India 2016 in Goregaon, Mumbai. Mr. Alberto Carporali, General Manager Access Floor Business, Schneider Electric was present at the event.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Alberto Carporali, General Manager Access Floor Business, Schneider Electric, said, “India is one of the most promising markets for us and we are glad to be a part of this major launch event in India. Through the launch of UFAD (Under Floor Air Distribution), which is a new concept of comfort cooling, Schneider Electric IT will mark its entry into B2C space as UFAD is meant for office space and other public utility structures’ cooling needs.”
Mr. Thanik B, Director – Strategy and Business Development, ECO Buildings, also commented on the launch saying “India is a strong market for Schneider Electric. Through this launch of UFAD, we will have a strong foothold in the country, which is a major benchmark in the growth of Schneider Electric globally. We envision in expanding our services in the country and making it a key market and Acrex 2016 is the best platform for us to introduce the same.”
The UFAD system uses the space between the structural concrete slab and the underside of a raised access floor to deliver conditioned air directly into the occupied zone of the building. This principle can be developed in different configurations, according to the customer’s needs and project requirements.
Pressurized Plenum configuration
This configuration consists of an air handling unit delivering air through the under floor plenum, maintaining a pressure that allows air to be delivered into the space through passive floor air diffusers.
Fan-powered air diffusers (UTCT) can be integrated in closed meeting rooms and offices where the temperature requires rapid and personalized adjustments.
In this configuration the central air handling unit delivers conditioned air to the underfloor plenum, but in this case the plenum is maintained at very nearly the same pressure as the conditioned space. Active fan-powered diffusers supply the air into the occupied zone of the space.
0% waste of Space
Saves more than 20% of energy
40% faster construction time
and 100% flexible.
