Comfort is a special characteristic of architecture that architects and planners can’t always easily create according to a set of standard formulas, whether in offices, public buildings or private homes. But there is, nonetheless, no shortage of high-quality elements which can be utilised to enhance the well-being of users.

The design decisions that architects make as well as the technical innovations they utilise naturally have a powerful effect on a room’s look, atmosphere and temperature. One area of a room that contributes to this but which may not always garner as much attention as others is the space above our heads, and it is here, on the ceiling, where OWA comes to the fore with its innovative air conditioning systems and solutions.

OWA’s acoustic solutions focus on the ceiling and ensure a healthy and pleasant room temperature. Changing requirements over the course of the room’s lifetime present ongoing challenges. For premium, holistic room concepts, OWA creates high-quality, affordable ceiling solutions for both existing and new rooms.

Depending on requirements and season, the single system of the new OWActive mineral climate control ceiling offers cosy warmth or pleasant coolness via radiation. Its functionality follows the lead of nature

Whether for unobtrusive, uniform, large-scale areas or small-scale spaces with expressive grid ceilings, OWA can offer a suitable, stylish solution for the most diverse of acoustic challenges. But in addition to excellent design and bespoke acoustic solutions, environmental concerns such as energy transition mean particularly sustainable and future-oriented architectural measures are also called for.

OWActive mineral climate control ceilings combine acoustic and climate solutions and offer a complete, highly effective modular system for every area of a building. The air conditioning is as comfortable as it is energy-efficient, because the principle of heat radiation consistently follows nature’s example. The air-conditioning technology is located completely within the system’s self-contained grid pattern. Water-carrying grids enable the easy integration of additional built-in technical elements and, at the same time, ensure the comprehensive acoustic strength of the mineral panels. The room temperature can be adjusted at any time according to the individual requirements of the user.

This natural form of air conditioning combines high levels of efficiency with pleasant comfort. Rooms are effectively and efficiently tempered by radiation, resulting in increased well-being for the user

OWA’s versatile mineral tiles can be easily exchanged, enabling great long-term flexibility. The high degree of serviceability offered by OWAcoustic false ceiling systems also means a high degree of variability as well as ease of maintenance. The air conditioning technology installed in the energy grid remains unaffected and fulfils its heating and cooling functions independently of the OWAcoustic mineral tiles.

Comfortable radiant heat ensures a greater sense of well-being in the room. Furthermore, the strong convection that is typically associated with underfloor heating and wall-mounted radiators is eliminated. This means that the OWA mineral climate control ceiling offers real added value, and not only for people with dust allergies. It also eliminates uncomfortable draughts within the room, as well as unwanted sound caused by the operation of air conditioning systems. The reduction of these stress factors automatically contributes to a higher level of comfort, and subsequently, can have a positive effect on well-being and performance.

In addition to the advantages of surface air conditioning, the mineral ceiling system is also highly effective both acoustically and climatically, and so ensures a holistically comfortable room climate

The high quality and timelessness of the design, which make a significant contribution to the positive ambience, are important aspects that also add value. As is customary with OWA, the new mineral climate control ceiling is characterised by economy, ease of installation and high variability in visual and technical design. As a complete system, OWActive mineral climate ceilings offer all the prerequisites for sustainable and future-proof interior design in sectors such as education, health, retail, administration, hotels and restaurants.

The company’s own ‘Cradle-to-Cradle”’ recycling concept ‘OWA green circle’ completes the overall sustainability package. All mineral ceilings from the OWAlifetime collection produced after 1 October 1997, are 100 per cent recyclable, and can be returned to OWA and used in the quality-assured production of new ceiling tiles.
