It's Not Just Pipe... It's a System with 360o Customer Support
Pipe is pipe, you might say, but not at REHAU. We offer advanced design and hands-on installation support for all our hydronic technologies, including Pre-insulated Energy Transfer Pipe, Radiant Heating and Cooling, Geothermal Ground Loop Heat Exchange and Snow & Ice Melting. And be assured, members of our Team are always ready to go “wheels up” and visit your jobsite to provide expert guidance during installation.
So, now that we’ve answered a few of your questions, here’s one for you: When do we start?
With more than 50 international airport construction reference projects spanning 14 countries, REHAU is a global leader in integrated building systems for modern aviation facilities.
|High Altitude Aviation Training Site - Gypsum, CO|
This LEED® silver military pilot training facility with a 50-ft (15.24 m) tall hangar features REHAU Radiant Heating and Cooling and Snow and Ice Melting (SIM) systems. Indoor and outdoor temperature sensors are placed throughout. Pre-insulated PEX pipe runs the underground mains from the mechanical room to the radiant systems and fan coils, as well as out to the SIM system.
The radiant system's crosslinked polyethylene (PEXa) piping rests on a steel grid within a 9 in (23 cm) concrete slab. The extra-thick slab required to support heavy aviation equipment creates an efficient thermal mass, retaining much of the heat close to the floor for worker comfort and operational savings.
FedEx Air Hangar – Anchorage, AK
Opening an airplane hangar door in Alaska's frigid climate can result in a drop of 60º or 70ºF (33º or 39ºC) in minutes. To ensure the comfort and safety of employees and to keep machinery running smoothly, FedEx chose a radiant/forced-air combination heating system for its 72,800 ft2 (6,763 m2) airplane hangar in Anchorage.
The REHAU radiant system acts as the primary source of heat, circulating a heated water/glycol mixture through 43,000 ft (13,106 m) of 1 in. RAUPEX O2 Barrier crosslinked polyethylene (PEXa) pipe resting on steel within the concrete slab. When the system is engaged, the floor acts as a thermal mass, retaining much of the heat even when the hangar doors are opened, minimizing need for the forced-air system, which keeps energy costs low.
Bilbao Airport – Spain
A REHAU Radiant Heating and Cooling System was installed to provide air conditioning for the terminal, and because the PEXa pipes are embedded in the concrete floor slabs, Calatrava had greater freedom in designing the modern structure. In addition, the pipes are maintenance-free and help keep operating costs low thanks to effective heat distribution and low supply temperatures.
Ataturk Airport - Istanbul, Turkey
The new hangar, at 25,000 m² four times bigger than its predecessor, was completed in January 2011. REHAU radiant heating was chosen. The hangar provides space for 16 narrow-bodied aircraft or four wide-bodied aircraft plus up to 8 narrow-bodied aircraft.
Stuttgart Airport - Germany
The new Terminal 3 at Stuttgart Airport was built between 2000 and 2004. The capacity of the terminal is 4 million passengers per year. REHAU's were chosen to control temperatures inside the building.
A total of 100,000 m of PEXa pipes laid over an area of 16,000 m² provides state-of-the-art temperature regulation – technical and architectural perfection.
Kiev-Boryspil Airport - Ukraine
A positive experience with REHAU led to an additional installation of a radiant heating and cooling system in the new Terminal D.
