Monodraught and IES to Create New Cool-Phase and Sunpipe Performance Components
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 20 November 2012
The use of building performance analysis has grown extensively in the last 10 years, driven by the development of computer simulation and legislative requirements to reduce the energy consumption of buildings. Monodraught pioneered the COOL-PHASE® natural cooling system and SUNPIPE® natural daylight systems, but modelling these types of systems has been considered time consuming and complicated. The new Cool-Phase and Sunpipe Performance Components for the IESVE (Virtual Environment) will change all this.
Monodraughts COOL-PHASE® natural cooling system is a low energy cooling and ventilation system that creates a comfortable, fresh and healthy indoor environment and reduces the running costs of buildings. COOL-PHASE uses a thermal energy store utilising Phase Change Material (PCM) in combination with an intelligently controlled Air Handling Unit. The system can maintain temperatures within the comfort zone, while radically reducing energy consumption compared to conventional cooling systems.
Monodraughts SUNPIPE® natural daylight system directs sunlight into a room from roof level. The SUNPIPE collects daylight using a patented Diamond dome, using a silverised PVD coated mirror-finished aluminium tube to transfer light to a room, with a ceiling diffuser evenly distributing the light around the room.
