Heating & Cooling Method to Transform NZ’s Offices


Office Heating & Cooling Method to Transform NZ’s Commercial Market

Managing thermal comfort in the workplace is paramount for staff wellbeing, but New Zealand is lagging behind – until now.

In early 2019, importer & distributor Waterware introduced a radiant heating and cooling solution, popular in Europe and the United States, to the residential market in New Zealand. The system known as Active Ceiling was designed by Messana to provide radiant uniform comfort and energy throughout living spaces via the installation of panels in the home’s ceiling cavity.

In the second stage of their launch plan, Waterware have now launched Active Ceiling into the commercial market, allowing building and business owners to reduce their carbon footprint and utilise radiant heating and cooling technology in the workspace.

Waterware spokesperson and company Director Darren Yearsley says building and business owners can now enjoy a form of heating and cooling that takes up minimum space but has maximum impact.

“The commercial Active Ceiling solution regulates your room temperature using radiant heating and cooling technology. Its exceptional performance and customizability make it thermally and acoustically ideal for a wide range of applications; from offices, schools and conference rooms to restaurants, hospitals and airports.”

“The beauty of Active Ceiling is that it substantially reduces your energy consumption and lowers maintenance costs, not to mention the added health benefits of no air movement or dust circulation so it’s much healthier,” Darren Yearsley says.
