CoolZone Ceilings

CoolZone ceiling tiles incorporate BASF Micronal phase change material (PCM) into Armstrong’s plain metal ceiling tiles. The phase change material encased in the cassette stores and releases large amounts of energy, reducing cooling costs and maintaining a comfortable temperature within a building.

How does it work?

Phase change material within the ceiling tile melts when it absorbs heat, and then in cooler periods, reforms expelling the heat back into the room.

Key Benefits

  • Prevents overheating, without the use of air-conditioning
  • Acts as thermal mass – returning stored heat to a room in cooler periods and overnight
  • Tiles can be fitted to standard grid support system.
