Frenger Systems is a world-renowned specialist manufacturer of space conditioning products for indoor climate / environments. Frenger has extensive experience dating back some 80 years and is at the forefront of the design, development and manufacture of water driven cooling and heating technologies. Over the decades, Frenger has earned an enviable reputation as a dependable supply partner capable of developing effective space conditioning solutions for the most complex of projects.
Frenger In-House Design Services
Frenger’s UK technical facility is dedicated to Multiservice Chilled Beam (MSCB) technology. Frenger design and manufacture in-house and are able to meet the specific requirements of the professional teams for various landmark building projects. This ranges from the overall appearance, to the provision of a comfortable working environment for the end user. Frenger offer clients a full lighting design service, CAD drafting and 3D rendering of MSCB’s in the environment, climatic simulations and full scale Climatic Testing in any one of their three BSRIA calibrated Climatic Testing Laboratories at their Pride Park facility, in-house Thermal Imaging, two Photometric Lighting Laboratories and also an Acoustic Sound Laboratory.
Multiservice Chilled Beams
Frenger’s UK technical facility is dedicated to Multiservice Chilled Beam (MSCB) technology. Frenger design and manufacture in-house and are able to meet the specific requirements of the professional team for various landmark building projects. This ranges from the overall appearance to the provision of a comfortable working environment for the end user. MSCBs can utilise either passive or active beam technologies. The MSCB removes the need for the monolithic ceilings that we have become accustomed to in office developments, instead providing visually stunning yet 100% functional building services which are 100% pre-fabricated off site in a controlled factory environment.
- Ideal for minimal floor-to-slab height
- Low running costs – minimal maintenance
- Delivers many services in a single unit
- Extremely high level of thermal comfort
- Beam aesthetic can be customised to client requirements
The following building services can be integrated within Frenger MSCB’s:
- Control valves
- Fire alarm
- BMS sensors
- Acoustic insulation
- Fresh air requirements
- Power / ductwork trunking
- Pipework / ductwork
Active Chilled Beams
Many large projects with cooling requirements in excess of 100 W/m² are now utilising Frenger’s active beams supplied with fresh air rates of just 1.2l/s/m².
Frenger offer active chilled beams to meet a multitude of needs. Frenger’s low profile active beam has a <135mm construction depth and is ideal where the ceiling void is restricted. Frenger’s high performance beams can handle large air volumes (up to 70l/s per beam) and consequently delivers the highest cooling capacities.
Passive Chilled Beam & Chilled Ceilings
Frenger’s “Radiant” passive chilled beam ‘X-Wing’ out performs any other beam on the market today. Also X-Wing has no joints in the pipework coil hence, no risk of leaks. Positioned above a perforated metal ceiling system, these Radiant Beams deliver unrivalled levels of cooling capacity and occupancy comfort; up to 150 W/m² of cooling with no draughts and no noise. Furthermore, Radiant Beams can be used with very small ceiling perforations (2.4mm diameter holes and 28% free area) making it virtually invisible from below. Frenger have designed, supplied and installed Radiant chilled beam ceilings on many major UK projects, and tower buildings for Australia and other countries.
Multiservice Radiant Panels (MSRPs)
Frenger’s Acoustic, Lighting and Heating Rafts, otherwise known as Multiservice Radiant Panels (MSRPs) consist essentially of a free hanging Radiant Heating Panel coupled with other services such as:
Lighting, acoustic sound absorbing materials, apertures for sprinkler heads, compartment trunking for other electrical services, apertures for PA and VA speakers, lighting control, PIR sensors and Photocells.
The radiant heating element is the same technology as utilised for Frenger’s Modula panels.
Modula is a high performance heating cassette with a smooth surface finish. The design and special bonding process employed in the manufacturing of the panel ensures maximum heat exchange. Modula has been specifically developed to be integrated into standard exposed-grid ceiling systems, for use in schools and healthcare environments, where an easy-to-clean and simple-to-install panel width with high heating capacity (567 W/m² at 56 dTK) is the preferred solution.
EcoStrip is suited for heating large buildings, sports halls, aircraft hangers and factories. Units can be wall mounted or free hanging and are available in lengths of 4 to 120m. Panels are available in RAL 9010 white or RAL 9002 grey finishes. EcoStrip has been performance tested to EN 14037.
