Launch of new space saving indoor AHU

Swegon has launched another variant of its Global space-saving air handling units (AHU) with heat recovery, designed for light commercial and refurbishment projects.

Global LP from Swegon.

The Global range of AHUs compliment Gold, as a more standardised and cost-effective solution to meet the rising energy efficiency requirements set by the European Energy Related Products (ErP) directive.

The Global LP (low profile) units provide airflows of up to 3,720 m³/h (1,030 l/s) from a compact, low noise product that is designed to be mounted horizontally in the ceiling. They operate at 85 per cent efficiency, thanks to the use of a plate heat exchanger for heat recovery, plug and play controls, low energy consumption EC fans and high-performance DC motors.

The company has also developed increasingly effective control strategies with ‘open’ communication via Modbus, TCP/IP, BACnet and KNX to ease integration into the overall management of the building.

Global LP ventilation units are supplied with plug and play, and have the basic functions pre-programmed and most of the accessories pre-installed, pre-wired and pre-configured in the factory.

The units’ generously sized doors ensure ease of access for maintenance purposes and the new enlarged electrical cabinet introduced this year features an integrated safety switch and better access to the control board.


The plate heat exchanger complies with standard EN308 and is Eurovent certified and the powerful EC fans ensure that sufficient external pressure is available even in applications where high airflows are specified. The composite fan blades also deliver higher operating efficiency than standard aluminium alternatives – a feature that is also in line with ErP requirements.

A 100 per cent modulating bypass is a standard feature on the Global units, this allows end users to take advantage of the ‘free cooling’ function, which is automatically controlled depending on the indoor and outdoor temperatures.

An additional external heating coil (electric or water) and/or cooling exchanger can be linked to the units and managed by the built-in controls. The units can also be supplied with supply air and exhaust air dampers and are fitted with high quality particulate matter bag filters in line with standards EN779 and ISO16890.

Specifiers can also select the right Global air handling unit by using Swegon’s user-friendly sizing tool and export technical data and sketches
