Renovating to improve energy efficiency

In the course of the energy-oriented renovation at Stadtwerke Karlsruhe, a new interior and workplace concept was developed. The task assigned to architectural office Scope,
based in Stuttgart, was to come up with a design language for the newly modernised offices that would reflect the values of the company whilst retaining its traditional heritage. Through its INDUCOOL panels, Kiefer was able to meet both the technical and visual requirements to bring about this exceptional working environment.

Zoned ceiling design

The Kiefer INDUCOOL chilled ceiling panel forms a visual and functional whole, in combination with fabriccovered acoustic sails. The overall visual tone, with understated white surfaces, is deliberately accentuated with elements of colour, and the work islands of the open-plan offices are reflected in the zoned ceiling design. In addition to optimum room acoustics, the partly hinged acoustic sails make these ceiling areas accessible for maintenance and enable access to control equipment. Furthermore, the INDUCOOL chilled ceiling panel occupies just 5 % of the total ceiling area, making such tasks even more straightforward. For the larger, openplan areas, a cooling load of 50 W/m² can be comfortably attained with just a double air exchange rate.

Function Chilled Ceiling Panel INDUCOOL

INDUCOOL cools with air and water. Most of the thermal energy is removed quickly and economically by cooling water. High-quality air diffusers ensure a high degree of comfort and optimum air distribution


System advantages

  • Greater thermal comfort with low air velocity
  • Chilled ceiling panels require only 5-10% of ceiling area
  • Reduced energy costs by exploiting the cooling potential of outdoor air
  • High cooling capacity, up to 500 W/m
  • Temperature differences up to -14 K
  • Integration of cooling panels into cost-effective standard ceilings
  • A full-surface cooling-water system is not required
