Award, iF Design Award, Panasonic, R32

Panasonic has received an iF Design Award for its residential Floor Console Air Conditioner. The iF Design Award, presented by the International Forum Design, celebrates outstanding design amongst designers and manufacturers, providing a gold standard for pioneering products. Judges consider everything from environmental impact, functionality and cosmetic appearance.

Panasonic’s Floor Console Air Conditioner with R32, which offers a stylish alternative to traditional radiators, won the prestigious accolade thanks to several innovative features.

Stylish and modern design

The pure white aesthetic complements modern interiors and the compact design means it fits into most living spaces or bedrooms. It has a narrow depth for easy installation (600H x 750W x 207D mm) and can be mounted directly on the floor or fixed under a window, adapting to varying spaces. It can also be partially concealed in a wall for even more discretion.

High environmental and energy performance

Using R32 refrigerant, the floor console can operate with higher efficiency levels, compared to R410A solutions, providing a cost saving solution. R32 is easy to recycle, has zero impact on the ozone layer and 75% less impact on GWP (global warming potential)[1], helping to lower the carbon footprint of a building.

With a high energy performance rating of A ++ / A ++, the console can efficiently operate in heating mode up to -15°C, and cooling mode up to +43°C.
