2022 – AIRAH Product of the Year – Winner

The Smartair Team is thrilled and honoured to accept this year’s AIRAH award for Product of the Year for our SMARTEMP Helical Vari-Swirl™ Diffuser, type HSC-VS

This low profile electronic VAV diffuser has patent-pending cyclone swirl damper technology, integrated IEQ, and both supply temperature- and static pressure-independent VAV damper control. Sensors for supply pressure, supply and room temperature, PIR (occupancy) and IAQ (CO2+RH or VOC), as well as a Bluetooth enabled controller, are integrated in the diffuser hub. The diffuser operation may be stand-alone or networked. The latter may be via an intelligent, diffuser-plant integrated, Vari-Smart™ Controller (VSC) with patent-pending supply temperature and supply pressure optimisation sequences.

2022 – AIRAH Product of the Year – Finalist

2022 – PHIVE, 5 Parramatta Square, NSW, Australia

PHIVE, Parramatta’s new $136 million community and civic building, is to become a cultural hub in the heart of Parramatta’s CBD. It is also set to be Australia’s most sustainable government building.

As part of its cutting-edge design, PHIVE boasts a smart mixed-mode ventilation system. This automatically opens louvres to fill the building with fresh air as needed, and – depending on weather conditions – provides energy efficient mechanical cooling, heating and ventilation via motorised, variable geometry SMARTEMP Helical Vari-Swirl™ Diffusers, type HSC-VS and associated Vari-Smart™ controls for individual thermostatic VAV operation per diffuser. Thermal comfort is optimised as thermal loads shift, and both supply temperature and fan speed of the VRV AHUs are continually optimised for energy savings.

Other SMARTEMP products at PHIVE include:
