EcoCooling provided its Evaporative Cooling Systems to Herman Miller's PortalMill site.
Heating, ventilation and cooling play a crucial role within manufacturing facilities, however, getting it right can be difficult and costly due to the open nature of these sites.
With a large number of employees working on the shop floor, Herman Miller needed a solution that would keep working areas that were prone to overheating from intensive machine-based manufacturing cool whilst reducing fatigue.
The solution also had to insulate the site during the cold winter months.
Another consideration for Herman Miller was the government legislation around reducing emissions and its corporate social responsibility to be more energy efficient.
Herman Miller chose EcoCooling’s UK manufactured units as they were cost-effective, energy-efficient and proven to work in similar industrial spaces.
Nine evaporative cooling units were installed at the site, giving Herman Miller complete control of the air temperature and humidity levels in the assembly and manufacturing machine areas.
With the need for an all-year-round solution, the EcoCooling ECP units were installed as part of a wider air handling system that allowed for cooling via evaporation and fresh air during summer and the recirculation of fresh air in the winter months.
During the summer fresh cool air is ducted into the offices via acoustic lined flexible ducting and 16 4-way diffuser grilles.
The cooling solution has improved the working environment for Herman Miller’s employees and has delivered significant energy savings.
