1. Feasibility analysis
Based on the customer’s individual requirements in terms of efficiency, sustainability and energy efficiency, we provide targeted advice with respect to the most appropriate solutions for a building
3. Technical planning
We transform ideas into technical implementation, taking into account all relevant data and the applicable standards. Our Uponor planning experts, who manage your specific project, have many years of experience.
4. Installation and project management
We support your project team in planning, organization and in the management of resources. In close cooperation with neighbouring trades we provide for an optimum flow of materials and efficient and trouble-free installation.
5. Commissioning and handover
The systems undergo extensive testing and are commissioned by us before they are handed over to you.
6. Customer services
To ensure long-term system availability, we offer professional inspections and maintenance along with quality control using modern testing techniques, such as thermographs, flow measurements and water quality analysis.
The VARICOOL Opti Y high performance cooling elements are made of extruded aluminium sections (lamellae) with integrated pipe routing. Several parallel lamellae are factory-fitted with a copper serpentine pipework and interconnected. The elements can be easily suspended with threaded rods through slots in the U-mounting rail. The elements can be brought into exact position via a suitable support structure. The elements mounted to the ceiling can be connected by means of flexible and oxygen diffusion tight connection tubes, which can be plugged together and connected to the power supply.
Several parallel lamellae with front end plates form a ceiling module which can be fixed with adjustable
hangers to the ceiling. These modules are installed for example above air permeable ceilings. Heating/cooling modules with diagonally mounted heat conducting lamellae (45 °angle) can be implemented as an option.
The circulating water volume (mass flow) required for heating and cooling is calculated from
the surface area-related capacity q and the desired temperature difference αS between the forward
and return flow (spread). The amount of water is usually determined based on the following relationship when planning the cooling capacity of a cooling water temperature of approx. 16 ° C and a spread of 3 or 4 Kelvin
Building temperature control, energy supply and power generation with Uponor Energy Solutions everything under one-roof
Building temperature control
Uponor Energy Solutions surface systems, such as heating and
cooling ceilings and concrete core temperature control are established technologies for regulating room
temperature and have been a market leader for more than 50 years. The numerous technical developments have made us a pioneer in the field of advanced building system technology.
As an ideal basis for the sustainable, ecological and highly economical supply of commercial real estate with thermal energy, Uponor Energy Solutions have many years of know-how in the use of geothermal
probes, energy piles, ground heat collectors and geothermal groundwater wells.
For commercial buildings, we have developed a large geothermal heat pump, as a ready for connection power station with its own integrated hydraulic system:
The multifunctional heat pump simultaneously produces heating and cooling energy as needed and
is manufactured according to individual requirements in modular design ready for connection.
