Halton CSW - Not All Beams Are Square
The CSW swirl comfort unit is a compact air-conditioning unit providing swirl jet air supply. A combined cooling, heating, and supply-air unit for flush installation within a suspended ceiling. Chilled beams usually distribute air in two or, at maximum, four directions. Operation with the Halton CSW active chilled beam is based on a swirl jet air supply that distributes air to the room space by utilising a swirling flow action, guaranteeing a comfortable and draught-free indoor climate.
The updated Halton CSW introduces a new feature: automatic adjustment of supply air flow on the basis of the room air temperature or CO2 content, for a substantial increase in energy-efficiency. This new feature makes it easier to implement demand-based air conditioning either in the construction stage or in a finished building without the need to change the product.

Better Classroom Air Quality with Displacement Ventilation
Several international studies have found that indoor air quality in schools remains poor. This causes an increase in symptoms and illness, shortens attention span, while good air quality can enhance children’s concentration and also teachers’ productivity. The most common indoor climate problems are inadequate ventilation and thermal comfort.
In a recent article on indoor air quality in classrooms Panu Mustakallio and Risto Kosonen compared different air distribution methods and their effects on air quality in the classroom using a fullscale laboratory test to measure their performance. In their article, “Effect of Air Distribution Methods on Classroom Air Quality” originally published at Indoor Air 2011 conference, Mustakallio and Kosonen found that the average indoor air quality in the occupied zone was best with displacement ventilation, which also produced very good thermal conditions. For best results they recommend placing diffusers in all four corners of the classroom.
Displacement ventilation is also incredibly energy efficient, which makes it an excellent choice for ventilation in classrooms. Read the full article
