Radiant Heat and Thermally Activated Room Surfaces

From every thermally activated room surface, whether ceiling, wall or floor, a heat exchange via radiant heat has an effect on the entire room, on the inventory and the people. This form of energy transfer is not only highly energy-efficient, but also particularly pleasant for the people in the room.

The choice of the thermally activated surface makes the difference

However, the technically possible heating and cooling performance and thus their energy efficiency differ depending on the arrangement and the structural design of the thermally activated room area. All BEKA systems are characterized by the fact that the heating and cooling elements are attached close to the surface. This not only achieves high specific heating-cooling performance, but also particularly even heat distribution.

In addition to the constructive differences, the choice of the room area to be activated also affects the heating-cooling performance. Therefore, we have compiled a comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of thermal activation of ceilings, walls or floors.

Important applications

Further applications

Numerous, sometimes unique, requests for special applications show in particular the versatility of the capillary tube mats when used as heat exchangers. High heat exchange capacities, good controllability and the flexibility of the material lead to ever new ideas for use.
