Products

The design of all Air Conditioning Centre products takes into account the subsequent recycling and/or eventual safe scrapping of each component used. Air Conditioning Centre’s in-house rules set strict standards in this respect. The selection process used for choosing raw materials includes full consideration of their recycling characteristics¸ and of the breakdown and separation properties of subassemblies.

We also take fully into account the environmental and health hazards involved in recycling and in the disposal of non-reusable waste items.

The Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) is a number that refers to the amount of ozone depletion caused by a particular substance. All Air Conditioning Centre systems have an ODP rating of 0 during normal operation.

The Global warming potential (GWP) is a measure of how much a given mass of greenhouse gas is estimated to contribute to global warming. Air Conditioning Centre’s systems have a rating of 0 in this category during normal operation.

Packaging

Air Conditioning Centre endeavours to keep the amount of transport packaging used for its equipment to the bare minimum necessary. Subsequent re-use is taken into account when selecting packaging materials.

High-quality cardboard has long been a valuable secondary raw material for the card and paper industry. The sections of EPS are required in order to protect equipment in transit. EPS is 100% recyclable and CFC-free.

The EPS foam packaging used in all Air Conditioning Centre’s Systems is manufactured using substances that do not contribute in any way to the ODP and subsequent disposal of the foam will not release any harmful emissions that lead to global warming.

The securing straps are likewise made of recyclable plastic.
