REHAU completes landmark chilled ceiling installation at 40 Chancery Lane

  • 12 Oct 2016

40 Chancery Lane, an eight storey building within the London WC2 conservation area, has been fitted with the UK’s largest installation of REHAU’s chilled ceiling system.

REHAU’s radiant CoolBoard plasterboard system was installed in more than 5,000m2 of ceiling as part of an overall specification designed to achieve challenging sustainability targets and a BREEAM Excellent rating.

The CoolBoard was specified throughout the entire office area of 40 Chancery Lane after it was discovered that the building would not accommodate traditional fan coil units.

The plasterboard panels feature integrated loops of REHAU’s RAUTHERM 10mm PE-Za pipe, in addition to pre-drilled fixing holes located on each panel for fixing to the ceiling grid. 

The pipe tails from the boards are connected using REHAU’s EVERLOC compression sleeve fittings to guarantee no leaks.  EVERLOC provides optimum comfort and fast reaction times and, because of the low thermal mass of the panels, good control response.

The project has helped REHAU to develop more efficient methods of designing and checking details before going out to customers. This has led to the development of what was originally a bespoke insulated manifold box assembly but has now become a standard article on the CoolBoard chilled ceiling system.
