The Systems

Chilled Ceilings and Chilled Beams are increasingly being used to provide comfort cooling in both new and refurbished buildings. Using well proven technology, they are flexible, simple to install and maintain, and can provide an energy efficient, cost effective alternative to traditional cooling systems.

The Association

The Chilled Beam and Ceiling Association (formerly the Chilled Ceiling Association), has been formed by leading companies within the building industry. The objective of the Association is to promote the use of Chilled Beams and Chilled Ceilings, and encourage best practice in their development and application. Members meet throughout the year to discuss relevant topics and issues, and to agree courses of action designed to achieve this objective.
