Product Information -

The Floor Mounted Price Active Beam, ACBC, is an exposed perimeter unit suitable for office spaces, schools, hotels, lobbies, or any application where occupant comfort demands are high. The upper portion of the ACBC induces room air to pass through a heat exchanger and mix with the primary air. The mixed air is then discharged evenly from the lower portion of the ACBC across a louvered or perforated face at a low velocity. During cooling, the cool air flows down to the floor and spreads across the occupied space. During heating, the warm air rises and will heat the perimeter. The ACBC can be used as a standalone product or can be connected in series by interlocking plenums with other ACBC units to create a continuous look.

  • 2- or 4-pipe configuration
  • Heavy gauge face
  • Quiet operation
  • Internally painted black to hide internal elements
  • Pressure port for air-side balancing and flow verification

  • Chilled Beams Come of Age

    Architect Focused Webinars

    April 2015 – One alternative technology to an all-air system that is gaining traction is the active chilled beam. The active chilled beam incorporates the distribution of ventilation air and uses room air induced across a water coil to transfer sensible thermal energy for both heating and cooling to the occupied space. This webinar discusses the market place acceptance of chilled beams, common questions and concerns as well as, presents several case studies.

  • Chilled Beams in Healthcare

    Architect Focused Webinars

    October 2015 – A variety of chilled beam solutions are available for many different healthcare applications. Chilled beams in healthcare can reduce system horsepower by up to 40 percent, with minimum air changes satisfied through induction. This webinar discusses the market acceptance of chilled beams in healthcare, classifies common design considerations for appropriate spaces, and reviews real-life application of chilled beams through our case studies.

  • Applications of Active and Passive Beams

    Engineer Focused Webinars

    June 2014 - We are increasingly seeing beams applied in educational facilities, office environments and even healthcare settings such as patient rooms. Learn about opportunities for the application of beams and discuss real world examples.

  • Benefits, Challenges & Integration of Chilled Beams

    Engineer Focused Webinars

    April 2015 – This presentation will discuss the concept of active chilled beams in healthcare, the common questions and concerns, the potential energy savings and the typical installation issues. Two case studies are presented for existing hospitals using active chilled beams and the impact on the patients and staff as well as the overall application of active chilled beams in hospitals is discussed.
