Flakt Woods has enlarged its range of chilled beams with the Stella exposed multi-service chilled beam (pictured) and the integrated Astra. They are part of the IQ-Star range. The provide demand-controlled ventilation based on room occupancy to reduce ventilation and heating and cooling loads by 10 to 30%.

The free-hanging Stella aluminium profiled beam incorporates features such as direct/indirect lighting with either satin louvred or prismatic diffuser options, PIRs, smoke detectors, speakers and sprinklers. Flow-pattern control and comfort control functions allow flexibility in office layout. Good indoor air quality can be achieved despite organisational changes and renovations, without the need to change the installation.

The flow from the Astra chilled beam is adjusted automatically, depending on the level of CO2 in the room. The flow can be directed up to 45° through integrated vanes.
