Invisible air conditioning integrated into a technical raised floor in a renovated office building
Uponor's Invisible Air Conditioning solution for underfloor heating (heating and cooling) - with the Uponor Klett Self-fixing system - has been integrated into the raised floor Matrics technical screed.
- Invisible climatization with radiant heating/cooling
- Uponor Klett wet underfloor heating system
- Integrated into the Matrics technical floor of systems made by Subway company
Invisible water based underfloor heating and cooling for a renovation project
In the words of Daniel Díaz, "This alternative solves the deficiencies of conventional raised technical floors, and addresses their problems by providing solvency and durability of the installation, a system capable of admitting any program of present but above all future uses, and especially suitable for office buildings, for long-lasting cultural spaces or for spaces for multipurpose use”.
A highly innovative integration process
Based on the requirements of the basic project of the architecture-engineering studio, the ideal technical solution was agreed upon. “Uponor's technical office developed the characteristics of the radiant installation, and it was integrated into raised floor Matrics system to offer a single, optimized and coordinated solution. The resulting product is the required technical flooring”, describes Daniel Díaz.
Users, owners and tenants, will have the ability to develop any present and future use in the best conditions of comfort and efficiency known today, as well as the possibility of using any type of flooring with technical installations and comfortable air conditioning.
“If raised floor Matrics system also incorporates its network of air ducts and floor diffusers, the client solves all the air conditioning with a single product, consuming a minimum thickness. Working with Uponor provides the security of incorporating the advances in this type of facility that allow raised floor Matrics system to always be at the forefront”, affirms Daniel Díaz.
The challenge of sustainability in the tertiary sector
For Daniel Díaz, "The paradigm of sustainability is increasingly common in architecture, and 'green' certifications such as LEED or BREEAM are also increasing in the tertiary sector, although in Spain, with regard to technical floors, the use continues majority of raised floors with service boxes, which do not follow this line, being solutions that have to be replaced in the short or medium term”.
Despite the progressive incorporation of efficient products and facilities in the tertiary sector, this trend continues to be a minority. “Fortunately, the use of underfloor heating —both as a superimposed installation and as thermoactive slabs—, the forced improvements in building envelopes, and permanent solutions such as raised floor Matrics system —which allow technical and radiant to be combined in a truly efficient way— are helping to increase the degree of sustainability of architecture”, concludes Daniel Díaz.

Varicool heating and cooling panels were installed to the meeting room's ceiling. The new hydronic system replaced the old fan coil unit system. Varicool system is a radiant heating and cooling system. The panels do not heat or cool the indoor air directly but the surfaces what radiant covers.
