Passive system BASWA Core, which literally transfers the output of thermally activated components to the room with minimal loss also delivers acoustic absorption effects. This system is installed exclusively with activated concrete surfaces. In these applications, BASWA Core can either be installed in the concrete ceiling of the building’s shell (inlay) or can be mounted to an existing ceiling retroactively during the interior build-out phase.
The BASWA Core System is used in combination with TACS ceilings (thermally active component systems). Its purpose is to lead the energy generated in the room to the thermally activated ceiling through the sound absorbing BASWA Core panel. In new construction projects with the TAC system, pipes (usually made of plastic) are installed above the lowest reinforced steel layer in solid concrete ceilings. Water is used as the heating or cooling medium. The solid concrete ceiling is thermally activated in the vicinity of the pipes, which serve as transfer and storage mass. To ensure that the thermal energy is transferred from the activated concrete ceiling through the sound absorbing system, a specially shaped aluminum profile with a slit is used, which is one of the core components of the BASWA Core panels.
