Climacustic is system made of a sound absorption panel and a radiant part on the back of the panel in which circulates a liquid. The liquid circulates through an 8-mm PE-Xc w/ oxygen barrier pipe and, in order to avoid heat dispersion in height, the MDF panel is joined to an insulating polystyrene layer. An aluminium sheet makes temperature distribution even on the whole surface of the module. Such conditioning system guarantees the best level of wellbeing with a double advantage both from the acoustic and environment point of view and, above all, curbs energy consumption of over 30% in comparison with traditional systems.
