Ceiling heating/cooling

Pleasant room climate all year round

In buildings with increasingly better thermal insulation and a large proportion of glass surfaces, unwelcome increases in internal temperatures can occur on sunny days. It is recommended to use ceiling and wall elements for heating and cooling purposes to create a comfortable indoor climate, especially in the summer months. The systems can be used individually or together with a surface heating system. The combination with heat pump systems enables efficient temperature control of individual rooms or entire buildings.
The EMPUR® product range now includes two variations of a ceiling heating/cooling system. On the one hand, aluminium ceiling elements for heating and cooling for suspended ceiling grids and, on the other hand, ceiling and wall elements made with a special plasterboard.
Suspended ceilings have been the standard in modern office, commercial and administrative buildings for a long time. They look good, provide sound insulation and make large parts of the extensive building services invisible to visitors of the building. These drywall ceilings can also be used to air-condition the rooms. The EMPUR® ceiling heating and cooling system is simply inserted into the existing metal rail construction.
The new, ready-to-use ceiling and wall element for heating and cooling by EMPUR® is made with a special plasterboard with insulation on the back. In just a few steps, the EMPUR® system elements are used to create a drywall ceiling or a drywall that can efficiently control the temperature of the respective room. The element is ideal for renovation projects in which the floor cannot or only partially be used for surface heating, as well as for all new-build projects.

Aluminium ceiling elements

The ceiling heating and cooling system is designed for drywalls in new-builds or renovation projects. The ceiling elements consist of a powder-coated aluminium sheet. On the back, the elements are covered with 30 mm EPS thermal insulation (WLS 035) into which the high-quality PE-RT 5-layer pipe is integrated at the factory. The low weight enables simple and straightforward handling. The 600x600 grid size prefabricated with a heating circuit – alternatively without a pipe circuit as a dummy/compensating element – allows for flexible design of the ceiling surface. The ceiling elements can be installed in combination with standard ceiling substructures (e.g. T 24 support rail systems). Special plug-in couplings connect the elements.

The benefits of EMPUR® aluminium ceiling elements

  • Easy installation in new or existing suspended system ceiling grids
  • Low-maintenance and durable surface thanks to powder coating
  • Suitable for cooling and heating
  • Low thermal inertia, with good adjustment
  • Low weight, fast installation on standard ceiling substructures
  • High performance with low system temperatures
  • Noiseless, even and practically draft-free temperature distribution

Plasterboard ceiling elements

The drywall elements consist of a 12.5 mm thick plasterboard into which the high-quality PE-RT 5-layer pipe is integrated at the factory. On the back, the elements are covered with 30 mm EPS thermal insulation (WLS 035). The total board thickness of 42.5 mm ensures both sufficient and lightweight board stability. The position of the heating pipes is clearly printed on the surface of the panels to facilitate installation. Two prefabricated panel sizes with one or two heating circuits enable flexible design of the ceiling and wall surfaces. Another element, without a pipe circuit, can be used as a compensating/dummy element. The elements can be processed with standard profiles (e.g. CD 60/27/06), such as a standard plasterboard. The wall and ceiling heating and cooling system is designed for drywalls in new-builds or renovation projects.

ATTENTION: EMPUR® ceiling heating elements must be measured by the specialist planner and may only be installed and commissioned by authorised specialist companies. Installation and assembly must be carried out in accordance with the applicable technical rules and the latest technology. The specifications of the manufacturers of the rail system elements or the profile systems must also be taken into account and observed.
