As leaders in the supply of high performance Fan Coil Units, we would like to draw your attention to the BSI Standards Development public consultation on the determination of Specific Fan Power relating to BS 8850 Fan Coil Unit Performance.
Deadline for comment: 15th June.
This British Standard sets out a controlled method to determine Specific Fan Power (SFP) of Fan coil units (FCU) as a function of the volume flow rate of air.
This British Standard covers ducted, non-ducted and cassette FCUs that can be standing on the floor, hung on the wall, or fitted into the ceiling or floor, with the inlet and outlet air sections located either on the front, back, bottom or top of the unit.
This British Standard also defines FCU configuration for test purposes.
Read the draft document of the new British Standard for Fan Coil Unit SFPs here and comment by 15th June.
Following the June deadline all comments received will be compiled and the working group will then attend a meeting to review/resolve.
For further information or inquiries relating to the specification of fan coil units in your upcoming projects, please contact our FCU specialist, Michael McCarthy.
