This Jungle is a popular children’s indoor soft play facility maintains a comfortable 21’C all year round with an air conditioning solution from Daikin UK.
The key contributor to the enhanced experience at The Jungle is the Daikin air conditioning system, installed by local Daikin D1 Partner, Profreeze.
The installation included a Dakin D-AHU Modular R air handling unit, with a pair of Daikin ERQ-AW1 heat pump condensers to provide both cooling and heating capacity to DX coils inside the AHU.
The size 7 AHU delivers a supply and extract air volume of 7,776m3/h. Its rotary wheel heat recovery device exchanges heat between exhaust and fresh streams – tempering the incoming fresh air to ensure the most efficient use of the two air cooled condensing units. Each 10hp condensing unit has a nominal cooling capacity of 28kW and heating capacity of 31.5kW.
The AHU and condensing units are in a service area at the rear of the building and are enclosed by a wooden fence for security. The factory control system enables separate programmed operations during the week and at weekends.
Daikin ERQ-type condensing units are designed for pairing with Daikin modular AHUs. The R410a based, inverter controlled heat pumps offer high efficiency and fast response to changing loads.
There are 10 standard sizes of Daikin Modular AHUs, capable of supplying air volumes of 500m3/h to 25,000m3/h. Further development of the range has seen the introduction of the new Modular P, incorporating a plate heat exchanger as the heat recovery device.
