The term HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. It will be no surprise that with the continuous increase of the regulations for energy-efficient domestic and commercial buildings heating and cooling installations will become accepted. Together with these systems more and more piping is applied to make and keep the internal atmosphere of the building as comfortable as possible.
Where the older building regulations were on four different ventilation methods, mechanical supply of fresh air and mechanical outlet, mechanical supply of fresh air and natural outlet, natural supply of fresh air and natural outlet and natural supply of fresh air and mechanical outlet, the new building and energy regulations will make more use of extensive installations with air treatment systems that treat air from outside to heat/cool and to humidify or dehumidify.
For a (air tight) seal and connection of these installations and ducting products this needs to be hygienic and safe to ensure a healthy climate inside the building. Sealants and adhesives for this market segment must be solvent free and free of silicones. Den Braven offers a product range that has been specially developed for these types of applications and tested according to hygienic regulations for this market.
