Invisible Radiant Heating

Heat Cloud is the high-tech radiant panel heating and cooling solution that uses  the latest D Tube heat transfer technology in conjunction with light aluminium sheet and thin gauge copper tube. Panels offer efficient heating performance from low water temperature systems as well as low inertia and fast response times.

Panels are low weight and manufactured from aluminium and copper, so totally recyclable. They are are available in bespoke sizes and a range of pipe configurations. Working on the radiant heating principle, they fit within a building’s ceilings, walls or a combination of both, hidden behind plasterboard and other materials such as metal ceilings. By utilising side profiles and/or a retaining clip system, Heat Cloud sits within the building’s sub-structure without reducing the ceiling height or room dimensions and is invisible to the occupants whilst freeing up wall space.

The panels make final contact with the finished plasterboards for activation and effectively elevate the room’s facing surfaces to temperatures above that of the surrounding space (typically 20-45°C). The warm surfaces then add heat to the room and occupants through radiant heat transfer. The air in the room is transparent to the radiant heat and only surfaces and occupants are directly heated by the radiant transfer. Room air is indirectly heated by convection across the heated surfaces. When using radiant heat, space air temperatures can be kept around 3°C below the temperatures used for convective systems with no reduction in perceived comfort. The result of this and the system’s rapid response times combine to reduced energy bills.

A correctly designed and installed radiant conditioned living or work space creates a neutrally comfortable, healthy, energy efficient indoor climate under both heating and cooling modes and this can be achieved using a single system. The SPC Heat Cloud is mechanically budgeted, designed, purchased and installed just as with any standard specification of radiant panels or radiators. When selecting Heat Cloud the engineer is able to design their own preferred control arrangement in line with the appropriate number of zones. The ceiling and/or wall sub-structure is as standard and the plasterboard is installed in line with normal building practice.

By reversing the cycle on the heat pump or condensing heat emitter, Heat Cloud can also deliver air tempering and seasonal cooling by adding low temperature air to the heated air stream and regulating the temperature.
