Swegon scores Gold with modular AHU
Swegon has launched two new modular versions of its Gold air handling unit. The Gold Top and Gold L-Concept address a problem encountered all too frequently by design engineers – the shortage of space made available for building services plant.
Design teams are often instructed to make sure plant rooms and other service facilities take up as little room as possible in order to free up maximum usable or lettable space. This creates a particular set of challenges for AHU installers, especially when equipment is being retrofitted as part of refurbishment projects.
Swegon’s new Gold Top and L-Concept have been designed to allow specifiers and installers to customise the AHU in a way that gives them much greater installation flexibility. Thanks to the modular design, it is easy to combine the units to suit the space available. They can work with right or left, one, two, three, or four duct connections that are side-mounted or top-connected and – depending on the application – the specifier can also choose a rotary or counterflow heat exchanger.
As the name implies, the ductwork connections on the TOP units are on the top of the unit and the L-Concept AHUs take the air through the unit at a right angle making both ideal for fitting into awkward plant rooms.
These new designs are part of Swegon’s drive to simplify project delivery and help create improved indoor climates. It aims to ease the process from early stage design through installation and commissioning to ensure best results throughout the product’s operational life.
