The Multi-Service Foil, a joint venture between Zehnder, one of Europes leading indoor climate solution providers, and Whitecroft Lighting Ltd, one of the UKs leading project lighting and controls suppliers, is a fully integrated heating, lighting, acoustics and classroom services ceiling raft for schools.
Offering complete flexibility in space management the Multi-service Foil revolutionises classroom design, with the ability to provide all the essential classroom services - heating, lighting, acoustics and data, plus fire alarms and smoke detectors, into just one ceiling raft. Stylish in design it creates a modern and uncluttered aesthetic whilst freeing up valuable wall space for teaching purposes.
Utilising the latest lighting and heating technologies from two leading industry specialists, the Multi-service Foil enables schools to reduce their energy load at the same time as ensuring a consistenly comfortable and productive learning environment for their pupils. By combining maximum use of daylight with long 54W T5 lamps the Multi-service Foil uses less energy than alternatives and offers savings of up to 25%.
Add to this the benefits of a highly efficient and exceptionally responsive radiant heating system, which can achieve energy efficiciency savings of up to 40% on other heating technologies and is suitable for use with renewable energy sources, and you have the ideal solution to providing sustainable and energy efficient school building services.
With numerous configuration possibilities the Multi-Serivce Foil can be customised to meet the requirements of any classroom and with a trouble free installation it helps save time and money on site. A plug and play system, with much of the service installation being carried out before delivery to site, the Multi-service Foil is simply hooked onto the brackets that were installed at first fix and the raft it is ready for use.
Fully compliant with DfES Bulletin 93, the Multi-serivce Foil has also been designed with integrated panels which are filled with anechoic material to reduce reverberation. This negates the need for additional costly acoustic cladding and again speeds up build time.
An intelligent, efficient and comprehensive unit, the Multi-service Foil is the perfect package for the demands of modern school building practices.
