Chilled beams and room acoustics - any views?

  • Comment
letters

Why is it that chilled beam designers have not produced a satisfactory way of dividing their units post-installation? For example, where dividing partitions are required that cannot possibly be placed on grids set by the chilled beam layout, in my experience chilled beam systems and subdivision of floor space are never compatible.

There is a possible chance when a chilled ceiling is incorporated (as compared with below ceiling units) as this does at least provide the option of a flat blanked area to which the partitions can be fixed. However, even these create major acoustic issues between office spaces. Has anyone else had this problem, and did they discover a satisfactory solution ?
