AET Flexible Space is the leading market provider of Under Floor Air Conditioning (UFAC) systems.  By using the plenum beneath a raised access floor as the ventilation zone, ceiling duct and pipework can be virtually eliminated leading to huge savings in construction materials, installation, fit out and reconfiguration costs, and the potential to save height and space.  Zonal downflow units condition the air which is then introduced into the workspace using fan terminal units.  The system is inherently flexible; Fantiles are easy to relocate according to changing occupier requirements and feature integrated personal control.  We have worked with leading developers, architects and corporate end users and many of our buildings have won industry awards for innovation, energy efficiency and sustainability.  Build ten floors, get one for free!
