Freecool Commercial and Industrial Applications

iStock_000005784947XSmallComplex commercial and industrial workplace premises with high concentrations of personnel, computers, lighting, manufacturing, other work activities and solar gain will produce heat and CO2, good ventilation and cooling will reduce the build up of CO2 and heat, creating a fresh, comfortable, conducive and safer working environment.

Energy use and carbon emissions of Workspace Technology’s Freecool® is approx. 10% of traditional mechanical air conditioning systems, whilst delivering a cooling effect of between 10-12°C.

According to the Carbon Trust, air conditioning can use a huge amount of energy. In fact, air conditioning can increase a building’s energy consumption and associated carbon emissions by up to 100%.

Waiting AreaDeployment of Freecool® Evaporative Free Air Cooling by Workspace Technology will reduce operating costs by 90% in comparison to traditional mechanical air conditioning systems.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® systems can be integrated into existing Building Management Systems (BMS) systems or combined with a range of power and environmental monitoring infrastructure and software solutions provided by Workspace Technology.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® system provides 100% natural fresh air cooling and ventilation for offices, lecture theatres, manufacturing plants, call centres, warehouses, data centres, canteens, laboratories and research facilities.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® systems are deployed at commercial and industrial sites across the UK providing cooling and ventilation for multiple applications including;-

Education

Educational establishments like any other complex workplace with high concentrations of personnel, computers, lighting, other work activities and building solar gain will produce heat and CO2, good ventilation and cooling will reduce the build up of CO2 and heat, creating a fresh, comfortable, conducive and safer working environment.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® system provides 100 % natural fresh air cooling and ventilation for classrooms, lecture halls, kitchens, computer suites, gymnasiums and refectories, without the need for refrigerants.

The energy use and carbon emissions of Workspace Technology’s Freecool® is approx. 10% of traditional mechanical air conditioning systems, whilst delivering a cooling effect of between 10-12°C.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® systems unique atemperation technology provides close control of heat exhaust, the warm air can be used to manage and recycle heat, for re-use in the workspace.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® systems are deployed at Educational establishments across the UK providing cooling and ventilation for a number of differing applications.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® systems comply with Building Bulletin 101 -Ventilation of School Buildings published by The Department for Children, Schools and families in support of the building Regulations and the School Premises Regulations, and as such provides a guide to the legal requirements for ventilation and the control of overheating in school buildings.

Educational establishments are entitled to financial assistance under the Salix scheme contact sales on 0121 354 4894 to fin out whether your proposed scheme qualifies.

Numerous successful public sector Freecool® projects have been implemented with Salix funding.


Retail

Modern retail premises must be energy efficient, sustainable, and cost effective with a keen eye on reducing carbon emissions, energy consumption and operational costs, within this competitive sector.

According to the Carbon Trust, the retail sector comprises about 7% of the total UK building energy consumption and emits over five million tones of carbon dioxide per year.

Workspace Technology’s energy efficient Freecool® cooling systems will reduce energy use and carbon emissions by as much as 90% when compared to mechanical air conditioning systems, whilst delivering a cooling effect of between 10-12°C.

Freecool® can be deployed in both front and back of house retail environments, providing 100% natural fresh air cooling and ventilation for sales floors, stockrooms, and staffroom areas.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® systems unique atemperation technology will allow exhaust heat to be re-used within the workspace, or adjacent areas.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® systems can be integrated into existing building management systems or integrated with a range of power and environmental monitoring solutions provided by Workspace Technology.


Warehousing and Distribution Retail

At warehouse and distribution sites where large building structures, attracting high levels of solar gain, and housing high density storage systems, mezzanine floors, motorised conveyors and materials handling equipment, personnel and other work activities will produce high levels of heat and CO2; good ventilation and cooling is essential and will reduce the build up of CO2 and heat, enabling a clean air work environment.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® system can reduce cooling energy costs and carbon emission by up to 90%, ensuring significant annualised savings.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® system provides 100% natural fresh air cooling and ventilation for warehouses, distribution hubs, and general storage areas.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® systems unique atemperation technology provides close control of heat exhaust, the warm air can be used to manage and recycle heat, for re-use in the workspace.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® systems are deployed at Warehousing and Distribution sites across the UK providing cooling and ventilation for a number of differing applications from high bay warehousing to pick towers, automated handling and bulk storage.


Call Centres

Call Centre premises with high concentrations of personnel, computers, lighting, catering, breakout areas and other associated activities will produce high levels of heat and CO2, good ventilation and cooling will reduce the build up of CO2 and heat. Improving workplace air quality, for a more conducive work environment.

As the majority of call centres operate 24/7/365 the benefits of Freecool® are more pronounced as more energy is usually supplied to cooling the premises than to heat it, given the constant workplace activity.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® systems will reduce cooling energy costs by up to 90% when compared against traditional mechanical air conditioning systems.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® systems atemperation technology enables re-cycling of heat for re-distribution within the workspace or adjacent work areas.

Workspace Technology’s Freecool® can be integrated into existing building management systems.

Larger organisation that are subject to a carbon tax will also realise financial savings in reducing their carbon footprint.
