Launching Autumn 2017
Artus™ is a revolutionary, award-winning, hybrid AC system designed to save energy, money, and space. UK designed and developed in partnership with Arup; Artus™ provides fan coil unit (FCU) performance and flexibility, with the low energy consumption of a chilled beam, enhancing office comfort via swirl air distribution, eliminating unwanted draughts.
A smarter, smaller approach to air conditioning
A fully packaged system, Artus™ has a specific fan power of 0.08 watts/litres/second, 66% less than comparable ‘best in class’ FCUs. The sleek unit measures 572mm (W) x 572mm (L) x 200mm (D). Artus™ delivers smaller, clearer service zones, reducing storey heights and requiring no secondary ductwork making it accessible from below. A facility manager’s dream.
Artus™ provides a new approach to traditional air conditioning for comfort based applications. It's an advanced hybrid system. It combines the performance and flexibility of a fan coil unit (FCU), with the low energy performance of a chilled beam, without any of the associated drawbacks.
Artus™ is designed to improve working environments, enhancing office comfort and employee experience. It is your workplace; reinvented.
Marks & Spencer (M&S) Big Innovation – Winner!
Artus™ is already being recognised for its innovation and efficiency, having been selected as a winner in the Ecobuild and M&S ‘Big Innovation Pitch’. The winner was decided at Ecobuild 2017, 7-9 March at ExCel London.
Artus™ promises to solve the biggest complaints in comfort cooling, including; energy efficiency, draughts and dead spots, space claim of secondary ductwork, unit footprint, cluttered ceiling void services, and restrictive access for maintenance and installation.
Saves Energy – With a fan power of 0.08 watts / litre / second, it uses one third of the energy consumption of a comparable ‘best in class’ fan coil unit.
Saves Money – As a fully packaged system, there is no cost increase compared with a standard ac system. Artus™ is more affordable than a standard FCU, once diffusers, secondary ductwork, BMS controller, controls valves, and pipework are considered.
Saves Space – At 572mm (W) x 572mm (L) x 200mm (D), Artus™ is 43% more compact than conventional FCUs. This provides a smaller, clearer service zone, saving 300mm on the height of each storey.
Perfect air distribution – Artus™ delivers air in a swirl pattern, without the use of guide vanes creating a draught free environment, resulting in excellent thermal coverage in both cooling and heating modes, maximising comfort levels.
Function and Form – Artus™ has clean, design-led aesthetics. The perforated bottom fascia of the Artus™ is available in multiple designs providing virtually invisible, seamless integration into ceiling designs.
Hassle Free Maintenance – Artus™ represents a dream for facility managers, architects and interior designers. All component access is provided from below the unit via a drop-down fan plate.
