HOLEDECK Active Basic: Comfort and invisible air conditioning of low consumption, the future of sustainable buildings.


From 2020, the energy consumption of buildings will be nearly zero (NZEB). But do we know how to achieve it?

Holedeck and Uponor have developed HOLEDECK ACTIVE BASIC an innovative thermally-activated concrete slab, result of the research project carried out with the participation of ¨Holedeck¨, the ¨Spanish Institute of Cement and its applications¨ and ¨Eduardo Torroja Institute of Building Sciences¨.

This Holedeck lightweight slab is already the most efficient solution of the market in relation to material consumption, minimizing the environmental impact. In addition, the use of perforations for the passage of facilities currently reduces the height required on the ground of non-residential building and promoting the possibility of having an additional plant for every x plants built. The design of the HOLEDECK ACTIVE BASIC slab allows integrating systems and elements specifically designed for standard modular ceilings, as well as geometries and adapt to conventional modulations.

In addition, this slab can thermally activate by the integrating system Uponor TABS (Thermal Active Building System). By a framework of integrated circuits into the slab, water runs into the structure previously heated or cooled by any source of renewable energy (geothermal, aerothermal, solar…) to modify the temperature of the concrete slabs and use its inertia. This way, the slabs contribute to cooling and heating the environment in a healthy way, silent, without air drafts and according to the needs and comfort of air conditioning required at all times.

HOLEDECK ACTIVE BASIC contributes to the achievements of buildings NZEB and European targets of Circular economy. Running costs are reduced by more than 30% regarding existing buildings, and energy consumption by up to 60%.
