Displacement systems are particularly suitable to cool and ventilate large internal spaces, such as high-ceilinged offices, auditoria, factories and exhibition venues.
Operating on simple convection principles displacement ventilation introduces cool air into a building at floor level. The cool air absorbs heat from sources within the room (computers, people, lighting and machines) and is forced to rise above the occupied zone. It is then extracted through outlets (such as grilles) at high level. Displacement ventilation offers very good indoor air quality as it introduces air at floor level, displacing contaminants with the air that rises out of the occupied zone.
