TROX has been selected by BAM Construction and development management firm Argent to supply PWX fan coils for the second building at Paradise, Birmingham - Two Chamberlain Square. The 183,000 sq ft office building, the vision of Glenn Howells architects, will join the first building in offering a cumulative 350,000+ sq ft of Grade I office space as part of the Paradise masterplan. The TROX PWX fan coil range was an ideal choice for the air conditioning system at Two Chamberlain Square, where comfort of building occupants and energy efficiency are key priorities.
Launched in 2017, the PWX fan coil was the result of an extensive research and development programme in which TROX rejected incremental product enhancements in favour of a comprehensive rethink of fan coil technology. When developing the PWX range, TROX put the new fan coils through thorough in-house testing, using their in-house test chamber (constructed to comply with ASHRAE 79, BS1397 and EUROVENT 6/3), in addition to extensive corroboration of results at an independent test facility.
TROX PWX units feature new inlet attenuators, inlet plenums and discharge attenuators capable of achieving outstanding performance across a wide range of applications. SFPs across the range comply with and exceed Part L requirements, with typical values between 0.15 to 0.25 W/(l/s) at 30 Pa ESP.
The availability of in-house testing laboratories at TROX's factory in Thetford means that fan coil performance can be trialled and tested during the design phase, ahead of installation.
The TROX PWX range is able to speed up the specification of projects significantly, streamline installation and commissioning, and provide valuable environmental and cost benefits whilst reducing levels of risk.
