Energy cost, carbon reduction and legislation drive the need to find new and innovative ways to heat and cool modern buildings. Thermally Activated Building Structures - or TABS – is an innovative cooling and heating system engineered to meet these high requirements.
TABS utilises the large thermal mass of concrete building structures as a buffer for the changing cooling or heating loads during the day. It does this by running hot or cold water through pipes within the slab.
Underlined by its efficiency, TABS is currently a hot topic in climate control.
Thermally activated building structures have the following benefits;
Lower air volumes -
> less energy required &
reduced fan size
Higher temps (15-18°C)
compared to AC (6-12°C)
Increased comfort and
|Noise Reduction||COP uplift of chiller|
1C increase in room temp
= ca. 6% energy savings
Typical applications of Thermally Activated Building Structures:
In-situ concrete slabs
Precast concrete planks
Beyond the REHAU PE-Xa pipe, the jointing system plays a central role. Over 850 million fittings have been installed worldwide with NO LEAKS, REHAU EVERLOCTM consists of only 2 components making it the installers choice.
