Finalist in HVAC/R in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition
The BEKA cooling and heating system with microcapillary tubes system solves issues associated with traditional HVAC all-air systems. This Bio-Climatizing air conditioning system is based on the way warm-blooded organisms regulate temperature via a capillary system. The system provides air and heat through a combination of radiation (60%) and convection (40%). Capillary mats are installed in the ceiling and can be complemented with a wall and/or floor installation. BEKA mats, pipes, fittings, and valves are made of polypropylene random-copolymer Type 3, DIN 80780, which is nontoxic and can be safely recycled. The mats are flexible and can be custom-made.
