Frenger Systems manufactures and supplies a range of active chilled beams. They draw upon high performance technologies and patented design features to deliver efficient cooling to commercial, educational and healthcare environments.

The vertical batteries that characterise Frenger’s range of active chilled beams enables the units to deliver unrivalled levels of cooling capacity with a given air volume. The units are so efficient that they can provide in excess of 200w/m2 with fresh air supply of as little as 1litre /s/m2.

Active chilled beam units are designed to integrate into suspended ceiling systems. They fit easily into the most common ceiling designs and have removable faceplates that can be perforated to match perforated metal ceilings where required. This removable faceplate provides access to the factory-fitted motorised valve, drain cocks and controls.

Active cooling systems are also designed to ensure very low noise levels. They incorporate a patented nozzle design which delivers cool air to the room very quietly, and makes them suitable for discreet installation in hotels, offices, hospitals and schools/universities.

Where greater air volumes are being delivered Frenger’s Active Chilled Beam technology untilises patented air chamber design to generate a coanda effect within the chilled beam itself and variable air distribution patterns available such as a fan shape distribution to create a short air throw even with high air volumes. This fan shape distribution makes it possible to achieve a low draft risk as the short air throw avoids converging air streams when two active beams positioned side by side.

Frenger Systems :: Multiservice Chilled Beams, MSCBs

The concept also provides the specifier with a single source of responsibility for the design, supply and integration of all services, ensuring reduced costs and on-site time as all services are prefabricated offsite in a controlled environment and any site connections linking one MSCB to another is a simple matter of plug and play.


Passive Chilled Beams & Chilled Ceilings

The Carat unit is a passive “Radiant” chilled beam designed to be installed free-hanging from the soffit and positioned above a perforated metal ceiling system. Unlike traditional finned coil batteries, Carat uses both convective and “Radiant” principles to cool the space, offering exceptionally high levels of comfort.


Frenger Systems :: Technical Facility

Product testing will establish the cooling or heating capacity of the individual product, however it makes no allowance for asymmetrical heat sources (hot or cold perimeter wall), temperature gradients in the space or the effect of the ventilation system. This will necessitate building a ‘mock up’ of the ceiling arrangement, together with the heating / cooling device, appropriate heat loads, lighting, solar gain, air delivery and air extraction.
