The capillary tube mat is fixed on the inside of the metal canopy, usually with glue. The metal canopies are suspended freely in the room from the ceiling. On the visible side, there are perforated or unperforated metal canopies floating freely in the room, revealing views of the concrete ceiling. The system is used for the dissipation or supply of sensitive heat loads. The water circulates noiselessly in the capillary tube mats and regulates the room temperature largely by radiation, partly by convection.
Metal canopy & Capillary tube mat
All standard metal canopies, usually made of sheet steel or aluminium, with or without perforation, can be used. The Clina capillary tube mats type OVAMAT U 10 / UM 10 or OVAMAT G 10 are recommended for this design.
Length & Width
The capillary tube mats are custom-made in length and width for each project, the dimensions are 10-20 mm smaller than the inner dimension of the metal canopies.
The connections of the capillary tube mats or metal canopies to each other as well as the connection to the supply and return lines/ceiling sub-distributors are usually made on site using a proven push-lock system with flexible hoses.
The capillary tube mat is fixed directly to the metal in the case of unperforated metal canopies and to the fleece in the case of perforated metal canopies, which are usually covered on the inside with an acoustic fleece, mostly with adhesive.
According to the common rules of drywall construction. Active and inactive surfaces can be easily combined.
Lamps & Ventilation
Lamps can be perfectly integrated.
The system can be regulated room-by-room.
Fields of application
Suitable for modern interior finishing of rooms with special architectural, acoustic and aesthetic requirements, such as office buildings, residential buildings, public buildings, whether new construction or renovation.
In the case of unperforated metal canopies the capillary tube mat is fixed directly on the metal and in the case of perforated metal canopies, which are usually covered on the inside with an acoustic fleece, it is fixed on the fleece, mostly with adhesive.
The metal canopies are suspended freely in the room from the ceiling.
The connections of the capillary tube mats or metal caonpies to each other and the connection to the supply and return lines/ceiling sub-distributors are made on site usually via a proven push-lock system with flexible hoses.
recommended capillary tube mat
The capillary tube mat OVAMAT U 10 / UM 10 bzw. G 10 consists of an oval mat distributor pipe (20 x 12 x 2,0 mm) and capillary tubes (3,4 x 0,55 mm).
The constant distance between the capillary tubes (centre-to-centre distance) is 10 mm and is guaranteed by the omega ribbons.
- more exchange surface due to the oval mat distributor pipe
- lower installation height of the connections
Cooling and heating with one system
In most buildings, the heat requirement to be covered is so low due to the well-insulated building envelope that capillary tube mats invisibly integrated into metal canopies not only provide excellent cooling in summer, but can also heat very comfortably and energy-efficiently in the cold season
The open design allows more convection and the specially developed capillary tube mat with an oval mat distributor pipe results in a larger contact surface.
Good acoustics - perforated version
The capillary tube mat does not require any heat-conducting profiles that would cover the perforation and thus reflect the sound. The open construction helps to improve the acoustics in the room. The sound absorption values of the metal canopies specified by the manufacturers are maintained without restriction.
Optimized room comfort
Perforated metal canopies noticeably and efficiently improve room comfort both thermally and acoustically.
Free design possibility
The application with metal canopies is an excellent solution for spaces with special architectural requirements, such as conference rooms, cinemas or open-plan offices. The metal canopies can be freely adapted in shape and colour as well as in the arrangement according to the requirements.
Clina capillary tube mats turn any metal floating ceiling into a heating and cooling floating ceiling, quickly and economically.
Individual room control
The system can be regulated room-by-room.
Maximum degree of activation
The dimensions of the capillary tube mat are individually adapted to the size of the metal canopies.
