In Floor Chilled Beams


In Floor Chilled Beam Details

An AirFixture In-Floor Chilled Beam (IFCB) is a cooling and heating device mounted in a raised access floor. The IFCB utilizes air from the underfloor plenum that passes across a chilled/hot water coil to create efficient, high-density cooling or heating capacity for perimeter zones in a commercial building.

  • Central AHUs can be 30-40% smaller and quieter with these systems.   
  • The IFCB makes it possible to have simultaneous heating and cooling on opposite sides of the same floor plate with a 2-pipe system.
  • The IFCB will likely eliminate most underfloor ductwork, saving first cost.
  • These systems make lower access floor heights possible.

I’m always worried about trying something radically different in our projects. What if it doesn’t go to plan? What if there’s something we haven’t considered? Those concerns were completely unfounded with UFAD. it was far less complex, and way easier to plan and install than a traditional system.
