First Uponor Comfort Panel project in Hungary
A system for the liveable environment
Traditional air conditioning, air processing systems are less hygienic, less efficient economically, their installation is more difficult, and they are less flexible. These systems are based on air flow, which is distributed unevenly, causing a draught in the space, and providing relatively low humidity and temperature. These airflows dry eyes and upper airways. Due to low air heat capacity HVAC system installation requires large ventilation ducts that needs significant space within the building. These ducts get rapidly contaminated and may easily cause health problems. Unlike traditional HVAC systems Uponor Comfort Panel is a very efficient cooling system installed in the ceiling, often used in commercial buildings, offices, hospitals, gyms for educational buildings and buildings for public administration. The system is suitable both to renovation and new buildings. Especially in modernization, it is important that the flexibility meets the requirements of the building. The ceiling cooling system consists of two panel types. One is the comfort panel with heating & cooling pipes, and the other is the so-called passive panel with no pipes. The panels are available in four sizes, in dimensions of 1250x625 mm, 1200x600 mm, 625x625 mm, and 600x600 mm. Inside the Comfort panel the cooled water flows in Uponor PE-X 10 x 1.5 mm flexible pipes, providing even temperature. The blind panel have no pipes, and can be used as part of the suspended ceiling, for example near the walls, or at places where fixing points are necessary, for the connection of lighting, etc. Pieces are connected to each other and the base line by Uponor quick coupling fittings, bushings and jointing reducers. All panels are easy to install on a metal support structure, just like to the structure of the traditional suspended ceiling. The panels are covered by white fibreglass-reinforced fabric that provides a look of the traditional suspended ceilings right after their installation. Therefore full ceiling surface can be used for cooling. Cooling output of Uponor Comfort Panel is up to 92,5 W/m2. However, just like in all other building engineering projects, it is worth designing the system, which can be supported by Uponor.

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.
Le bâtiment d’enseignement supérieur et de recherche pour l’Institut Mines-Télécom intègre un système de dalle active sur une surface de 40 000 m2. Le bâtiment économe en énergie accueillera une gamme variée d’activités propres à l’Institut Mines - Télécom : formations, recherches, transfert et innovation.
Thermal concrete core activation with Uponor Contec provides economical, energy-efficient and sustainable building temperature control in the new landmark Adlershof Science and Technology Centre.
A hygienically optimal drinking water installation was integrated into the new office complex – thanks to Uni Pipe PLUS within a very short time.
First radiant ceiling cooling renovation project in tropical climate – Singapore
La dalle active Uponor est intégrée depuis 2017 dans l’immeuble Delta Green, bâtiment tertiaire de 4600m2 comprenant 4 niveaux. Celui-ci est le premier bâtiment de la région tout à fait autonome en énergie.
Uponor were nominated as the sole supplier for radiant heating systems for the Sunesis Schools schemes, with Main Contractor Willmott Dixon. Sunesis is a Joint Venture between Scape and Willmott Dixon, built on the combined experience of public sector know-how and private expertise. They are the market leader in delivering pre-designed buildings across a range of market sectors. Every design has a defined layout, specification, fixed cost and timescale to construct. The full benefits of a full BIM model are also utilised.
