Commercial Applications

 

Fan coil units (FCUs) can offer heating and cooling with responsive control, layout flexibility and high energy efficiency, making them ideal for commercial applications. Our bespoke FCUs can be adapted according to your project requirements, including adjustments for specific duty and noise performance, unit depth and competitive pricing.

The recent market trend towards exposed building services installations dictates careful acoustic and aesthetic considerations. The latest range of Ability horizontal units has been engineered to satisfy these design-led requirements.

Addressing Commercial Requirements

Our patented, self-balancing Matrix unit is ideal in commercial projects as it reduces commissioning time and allows water and air flow rates to be adjusted via the BMS rather than traditional manual adjustment via the ceiling. We also utilise EC/DC motors that can reduce power consumption by up to 60% compared to traditional AC motors. 

Our standard EVO range of fan coils is fully customisable to your requirements, allowing for adjustments to the acoustic intake plenums, flexible spigot positions and a range of control options. This makes them suitable for most applications. 

Multiroom Fan Coils

Commercial offices are often designed open plan, leading to a fit out by a future tenant who requires the space to have individual offices and meeting rooms. Our Matrix unit can be supplied 'Multiroom Ready', allowing adaptations for individual control to separate rooms without the need to remove or change fan coils.

A Case in Point

The Palestra building provides Transport for London with an iconic headquarters right in the heart of the city. During construction back in 2007, Ability supplied 750 Titan AC Fan Coils to provide air conditioning throughout. As part of an ongoing commitment to energy efficiency and environmental impact, the units have since been upgraded to utilise the latest EC motor technology, dramatically reducing energy consumption.

The upgrades were so successful that we were commissioned to undertake full refurbishment work on two additional TfL buildings, further reducing their running costs and carbon footprint. The buildings contained over 700 units from several different manufacturers, which created some unique challenges, all of which were overcome on time and within budget.
