Artus™ - Hybrid low energy fan coil unit

Fan Coil Unit Manufacturers UK

The problem with existing ceiling based systems are that they are not supplied as the full package, they are energy hungry, bulky, and inflexible. There's no integration with the ceiling membrane, units are problematic to install, comission and maintain, and they provide more noise and draughts than thermal comfort.

Why do we put up with products that don't work properly?

A smarter, smaller approach to air conditioning

After years of designing air conditioning units, we knew there had to be a better way.
In partnership with Arup, Artus™ was born - A hybrid low energy fan coil that combines the flexibility of a fan coil unit with the low energy consumption of a chilled beam. Addressing current ceiling based AC challenges; it saves energy, saves money and saves space.

Artus™ Hybrid Fan Coil 1.9kW - 2.4kW

A fully-packaged, plug-and-play, single-supplier system

Artus™ offers a fully-packaged, plug-and-play, single-supplier system and a host of benefits. These include self-access, reduced ceiling clutter and minimised ceiling void heights. As the unit is fully-packaged, there is no need for the specification of ancillary controls, valves, diffusers or spigots. The packaged system, sourced from one supplier, is of enormous benefit to installers, reducing cost and significantly increasing the speed of commissioning. It is perfect for cost-sensitive new-builds, height constrained refurbishments and energy conscious end-users.

Where form meets function, in perfect synergy.
