HCP, a division of SAS International, specialises in Radiant Heating solutions; a water-based energy-efficient space-heating alternative to traditional wall-mounted radiators and air-conditioning systems.
Radiant panels warm occupants and surfaces rather than air, combined with room zoning, this results in only occupied areas being heated. Radiant panels can also be easily incorporated into acoustic lighting rafts.
The use of Radiant Heating systems frees up valuable floor and wall space, leading to an increase of up to 10% in the net usable floor area. Additionally, the use of radiant heat reduces cross-infection risks associated with traditional radiators, helping meet infection control targets. Radiant ceiling panels are easy to clean with flat surfaces featuring no moving parts; resulting in low service and maintenance requirements, and whole life cycle costs.
Those involved in the refurbishment of buildings have to seriously consider the overall energy efficiency of heating, cooling and ventilation systems, and HCP's Radiant Heating products can contribute to meeting these targets.
