KCW – Water Wash ventilated ceiling (CE)

With Capture Jet™ technology and low velocity makeup air

CE Marked (UKCA pending) – The KCW ventilated ceiling combines several functions: extraction, supply air, uniform lighting and rigid suspended ceilings above neutral areas. Equipped with Water Wash technology, it washes down the grease filters without the need for removal of the filters from the ceiling. This eliminates the need for a second set of filters.

The KCW ceiling is also equipped with the new generation of Capture Jet™ technology. It requires up to 15% less exhaust air volume than traditional ceilings to remove an equal heat load.

The visual comfort and the impression of space are incomparable. In the unlikely event of fire, it also provides an excellent protection, limiting its spread through the building.
