About AET Flexible Space (Advanced Ergonomic Technologies Ltd)

AET was founded in 1993 as a principal worldwide distributor of the “Hiross” Flexible Space underfloor air conditioning system, taking ownership of production in 2010 under AET Manufacturing Ltd, and developing the AET Flexible Space brand.

With over 300 projects worldwide and a portfolio of notable world class developments, AET are the undisputed authority on underfloor air conditioning technology. We have the widest equipment range on the market and can help design bespoke systems to meet client requirements.

What is UfAC?
Underfloor air conditioning makes use of the space beneath a raised access floor for the distribution of air, eliminating most ducting and pipework.

Zonal downflow units, or “CAM” generate conditioned air which is delivered into the supply plena. Fan terminal units, or “Fantiles” supply the conditioned air into the workspace. Systems can be designed to receive spent air either at floor level (CAM-C system), or at high/ceiling level (CAM-V system).

How UfAC works
Underfloor air conditioning (UfAC) systems make use of the plenum beneath a raised access floor to create the air ventilation zone, eliminating the need for ceiling based services and associated duct and pipework.

Each floor is divided into zones of up to 300m2 depending on the potential use and occupancy density of the area.

Why use UfAC
Our systems are proven to offer solutions to unique design challenges, and that’s not all. UfAC systems are inherently flexible, modular in design and equipment is installed at floor level, making it easy to maintain and re-arrange to suit the demands of today’s commercial workspace.
  • Space saving
    Less waste, a better use of space is our ethos. By eliminating ceiling based services and ductwork our systems have helped achieve around 10-18% reduction of building height in new build projects, and increase floor to ceiling heights in height restricted refurbishment projects, helping to achieve British Council for Offices (BCO) recommended standards.

  • Flexibility
    UfAC systems are inherently flexible, modular in design and equipment is installed at floor level, making it easy to install, maintain and re-arrange to suit the demands of today’s agile workspace. The plug and play Fantiles can easily be relocated, offering huge savings when reconfiguring and adapting workspace.

  • Sustainability
    UfAC systems are sustainable by design, with prefabricated and modular fan air terminals and zone downflow units. As there is no ductwork, individual zones operate at very low pressure, encouraging energy efficiency.

  • Comfort cooling
    “I’m too hot or I’m too cold” is a commonly heard complaint about air conditioning, as well as complaints of draughts and cold feet. Underfloor systems create minimal draughts, and feature high levels of filtration and individual control of temperature and fan speeds, creating comfortable and adaptable working environments.

  • Design freedom
    In older buildings, historical and architectural features can be retained by locating all services under the floor, leaving ceilings fully exposed. Planning constraints can be overcome by reducing new building heights, or by preserving listed features and the inherent flexibility of UfAC systems satisfies unusual layouts and configurations.

  • Healthy workspace
    We believe in cooling people, not machines. Underfloor systems constantly filter air to provide the optimum, most comfortable and productive working environment. Personal control puts decision making on cooling levels literally in the hands of the individual to create a healthy indoor environment.

  • Speed of fitout
    Modular “plug and play” equipment and the reduced need for duct and pipework allows for much faster installation, reduced worker time on site and as a result, can attract earlier rental income. Adapting space from Cat-A shell space to Cat-B for tenant occupancy is fast and easy, making UfAC an ideal option for speculative and multi-tenancy developments.

  • Construction cost savings
    Buildings with UfAC systems have in the past demonstrated in the region of 5-7% saving in total construction costs. These savings are typically realised through building height savings and the subsequent reduction in construction materials and reduced time on site.
Fitout & Maintenance
Underfloor air conditioning can easily accommodate workplace changes due to the modular, flexible design and with the trend of office and tenant leases becoming increasingly shorter term, lease renewal and refurbishment is often preferred over securing new lease terms and moving to new space. The Flexible Space system is the ideal solution to meet the demands of today’s agile workspace.
