Ceilings with integrated cooling system create a pleasant working environment

Designed as the regional post office administration center by Robert Vorhoelzer in 1924 in the New Objectivity style with Art Déco elements, the palace was upgraded between 2008 and 2010. The listed building provides 43,000 m² of office and storage space for its tenants. The DGNB Gold pre-certificate proves that even buildings that are more than 100 years old can be energy-efficient and can also therefore save on costs.

Our solution
For the thermal activation of ceiling elements, the planners of this project opted to use a drywall construction method to install ceiling panels with RAUTHERM S pipes as a cooling system. The ceiling elements, which will be used as heating components in winter and for air conditioning in summer, are pre-insulated ex works, thereby ensuring that unnecessary heat loss is avoided.

Good reasons to opt for our ceiling with integrated cooling system

  • Optimum indoor climate with no drafts or operating noise
  • The drywall construction method makes our ceiling with integrated cooling system ideal for renovated properties.
  • Available in four different sizes, the active surfaces can be adapted to dimensions of the room.
  • No waiting for plaster to dry
