Lindab’s Solus chilled-beam system has been chosen to deliver energy-efficient climate control for a landmark building in Sweden — the Round House in the Munksjöstaden district. Pairing Solus with renewable-energy sources such as free cooling and ground-source heat pumps can achieve energy savings of up to 45%. The system includes nearly 600 Solus chilled beams and the entire ducting system. Pascal VAV system are being used in areas where the heating load can change very quickly, such as conference rooms.

Following a presentation of the system, Jonas Skörd of consultant FS Service commented, ‘It met the requirements of architects Tolust & Yellon for an indoor-climate system, and we immediately realised that it was very interesting indeed.’

Gunnar Järvhammar of Tolust & Yellon, said, ‘Several advantages led us to choose Solus — energy savings, simple installation, low maintenance costs, but above all a constant temperature in the whole building around the clock.’

The Solus temperature-equalising chilled-beam system creates a stable temperature in all rooms of a building by using the thermal energy in the building’s water circuit to move energy from rooms that require cooling to those that require heating — all based on actual need.

By mixing the return water from the various zones of the building, the temperate water and energy can be recirculated rather than being constantly cooled or heated as in conventional systems.

The primary function in Solus is energy equalisation.
