Chilled beams have variable airflow and direction

Solid Air, OKNI, chilled beam

Solid Air has overcome many problems associated with traditional designs of chilled beams by adding both variable-air-volume and air-direction control to its OKNI range of active chilled beams. Called eXtravent, this feature enables the volume of primary air to be changed if, for example, the space served changes from standard office space to a meeting room.

The eXtravent nozzles run the full length of the beam in distinct sections, and the size of their outlets can be adjusted via a sliding magnetic strip accessed through the face of the beam. The further addition of flow-pattern control allows the airflow from the beam to be adjusted over a 45° angle.
