TRANE INTRODUCES NEXT GENERATION BALANCE
HEATING AND COOLING SYSTEM
Increases sustainability in commercial
buildings through energy recovery, and
is one of the first in its category to meet
Eurovent performance standards
Trane, a leading global provider of indoor
comfort solutions and services, and a brand
of Ingersoll Rand, introduces Balance CMAC,
the next generation multi-pipe heating,
ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC)
system for simultaneous heating and cooling.
Trane Balance can be configured in more than 100 di erent ways for
multifunctional buildings like large o ice buildings,
hospitals, theatres and hotels that need simultaneous heating and cooling
in di erent areas.
It uses renewable energy and can repurpose energy rejected from the
compressor during cooling to heat buildings. Energy is recovered through a
simplified multi-pipe unit that simultaneously delivers hot and chilled water,
versus a separate boiler and chiller. This reduces investment costs, use of
floor space and total operating expenses while improving the sustainability of
operations for the building owner.
Additional sustainability benefits from the Trane Balance system comes
from the fact that the energy is distributed through water, versus refrigerant,
reducing refrigerant piping and risk of leakage. It is also one of the first multipipe
units on the market to earn Eurovent certification, which is a voluntary
industry performance standard certifying the performance ratings of airconditioning
and refrigeration products.

SUSTAINABLE NEW DRIVEWAY SURFACE FOR
MANSFIELD COLLEGE OXFORD
The appearance of a quintessential
seat of learning, an Oxford college
where an architecturally acclaimed
new structure stands alongside
elegant Victorian elevations,
was being let down by its hard
landscaping – until a sustainable
new driveway surface, featuring
Clearmac paving, was completed
The work to upgrade the striking circular driveway has been undertaken by
Beard Construction, with the assistance of Dartford based Gaysha Limited.
Prior to this project the surface to the driveway had become uneven and
unsightly, with rutted patches of subsoil showing amongst the remaining,
badly potholed tarmac.
Crucially, the Clearmac resin bound paving specified for the contract
encapsulates a light quartz aggregate, now presenting a pristine appearance
that will be both hardwearing and also sustainable. The constituent materials
o ering a low environmental impact, while also being water permeable to
Sustainable Drainage System (SUDS) standards.
Once the remains of the old tarmac had been removed and the formation
level prepared, the contractor initially laid an open-grain tarmac. This was
then followed by the 20mm thick wearing course of Clearmac, which is itself
permeable to rainwater.
Available from Gaysha, cold applied, Clearmac can be supplied in any
