Air conditioning technology in harmony with architecture
Stuttgart based Kiefer Klimatechnik is expanding its well-known and proven Indusail System active acoustic sail to include luminous surface lighting integrated in the ceiling sail. The new light sail combines surface lighting with cooling, ventilation and acoustics. The new all-rounder from the Stuttgart-based air-conditioning experts offers, in addition to surface lighting for the first time, the functions of cooling, ventilation and acoustics, thus ensuring perfect room comfort in office spaces.
In addition to the surface lighting, the canopy offers the functions of cooling, ventilation and acoustics and thus ensures perfect room comfort in offices. The “tuneable white” variant enables circadian lighting control in close alignment with natural day and night lighting conditions. This is ideal above all for the perfect lighting of indoor workplaces, where an optimal working climate is required for fatigue-free, concentrated work.
The glare-free, energy-efficient LED panels are available in two versions: The standard version has a constant monochrome light color in white with 3,000 or 4,000 K, the brightness of which can be continuously dimmed. With the optional additional variant “tuneable white”, the light colour can be continuously adjusted between cool white (6,500 K) and warm white (2,700 K) as well as dimmed. This enables circadian lighting control in close alignment with natural day and night lighting conditions. This is ideal above all for perfect lighting of indoor workplaces, where an optimum working climate is required for fatigue-free, concentrated work.
As with the INDUSAIL SONIC family from Kiefer Klimatechnik, INDUSAIL LUMINOUS is available in three different versions: INDUSAIL LUMINOUS plus combines the four functions light, cooling, ventilation as well as acoustics and cools the room air via an attached secondary air cooler. The highly inductive integrated slot diffusers INDUL type P18 with specially developed discharge geometry result in finest individual jets on whose surface room air can be efficiently induced. With this decentralised cooling solution, you get optimum room comfort with pleasant feel-good temperatures without the risk of drafts. Via the integrated supply air connection, additional fresh air can optionally be brought in through the sail. The INDUSAIL LUMINOUS air version works without an air cooler and has been designed to introduce only conditioned fresh air. Due to the possible low blow-in temperatures, high cooling capacities and at the same time highest room comfort are also possible with this version.
The INDUSAIL LUMINOUS family is completed by the version INDUSAIL LUMINOUS silent. This version does not include any ventilation function, but by laminating the top side with a highly absorbent insulating material, it ensures very good sound absorption and thus improved room acoustics. All versions have integrated LED lighting. The control units for the lighting technology are optionally available from Kiefer, but can also be controlled via DALI-BUS. The 2,500 x 1,100 mm sails can be extended and combined as required and can be used individually or almost entirely. They are therefore equally suitable for new buildings and refurbishments. The elements are supplied ready for installation. The light sail with its state-of-the-art LED technology is long-lasting and maintenance-free. Regular filter replacement on the air cooler is easy and can be done from the outside without tools, and the sail can be folded down for cleaning. In addition to caloric calculations, Kiefer Klimatechnik also offers specific lighting calculations so that the perfectly matching ceiling sail systems can be selected depending on the room situation.
Kiefer develops and sells high-quality air diffusers, fan coil systems, chilled ceiling panels and concrete core cooling systems worldwide. In close cooperation with our engineering business we extended and implemented our practical experience in new developments of our ventilation components and systems.
