Rehau focus on TABS
Rehau has created a brochure to introduce its innovative Thermally Activated Building Structures (TABS) technology to architects and specifiers looking for an environmentally-friendly heating and cooling system solution.
TABS uses the thermal mass of concrete in a building’s structure to adjust the environment inside throughout the day. It does this by running heated or chilled water through a network of PE-Xa pipes embedded within concrete slabs.
The brochure includes an introduction to TABS; an explanation of how the radiant heating and cooling works; and suggested applications. There is also a breakdown of the key benefits such as low operating costs (TABS can be used with renewable heat sources as it can be run using lower flow rate temperatures)’ quick and easy installation; and reduced maintenance requirements.
The guide features TABS case studies from across the UK and advice on the different types of installation possible.
Drew Clough, product manager, Building Solutions at Rehau said: “Architects, specifiers and contractors are increasingly looking for cleaner, greener ways to provide heating and cooling to their new build schemes and TABS is a great solution as it is sustainable and creates a healthier, more comfortable environment for the end user.”
