An innovative profile
The Clim® profile can generate 3 slot widths
Thanks to its patented open-work shape, Clim® allows air to flow through it a or by suction b between the volume of the plenum and that of the room. The non-perforated version c of the profile makes it possible to prevent the passage of air on certain walls. When the profile is used for suction, a partition wall d is introduced where the exhausted air is channelled through the air intake, which is supported by the profile.
For even air distribution and optimum comfort
* The Clim® system is compatible with all technologies of production of heat and cold by blown air. Contact your authorized Barrisol® installer for more information.
1 The room air is drawn in along the inner walls of the room and channelled through a partition wall d supported by the special Clim® profile.
2 The air is drawn into the air conditioning unit*, filtered, heated or cooled before being distributed to the plenum between the Clim® ceiling membrane and the structural ceiling..
3 A ventilation box can be connected to the system to inject hygienic fresh air into the plenum and/or extract room air from the Clim® air intake box d .
4 The conditioned air and the fresh air form a homogeneous mixture, distributed throughout the volume of the plenum.
5 The Clim® ceiling becomes a huge diffuser, radiating over its entire surface.
6 The conditioned air flows slowly down the outside walls.
A ceiling air conditioning system
1 In both summer and winter, the air-conditioning flow touches the outside walls. The unpleasant phenomenon of hot or cold walls disappears.
2 A natural air movement is created in the volume of the room at very slow, almost imperceptible speeds.
3 The entire surface of the ceiling radiates a pleasant, gentle feeling of warmth or coolness.
Use of radiation and convection
Arch. : Bertine Creemers - PUUR Binnenhulsachitectuur
Homogeneous wall temperatures, the combination of natural air movement and the large radiation surface of the ceiling, all contribute to Clim® providing unparalleled comfort in heating and cooling.
The occupants are enveloped by a gentle feeling of coolness or warmth, in complete silence and without draughts.
The radiation from the ceiling gives the system incredible responsiveness, in only a few minutes the sensation of heat or cold is perceptible.
An Homogeneous ventilation and no point source airflow for healthy air
Clim® provides perfectly homogeneous air mixing and distribution, without dead zones or inconsistent air flows, thus ensuring optimal indoor air quality.
Thanks to the supply and exhaust slots covering the entire length of the walls on opposite sides of the room, the entire interior volume is perfectly brushed with a slow and uniform air speed.
An essential factor in indoor air quality is the rate of hygienic fresh air is homogenised at all points of the occupied space. This makes it possible to dilute the rate of CO2 in a particularly effective way, as well as all the potential sources of released air of pollutants (such as VOCs) or pathogenic agents (such as viruses and bacteria).

A very high power capacity and unequalled thermal comfort
(1) without any risk of deformation of the stretched ceiling
(2) without any risk of condensation of the stretch ceiling
(3) up to 130 W/m2 according to laboratory tests
Thanks to the almost imperceptible air speed and the very small temperature difference between the feet and the head of an occupant (1.0 °C in heating mode and 0.5 °C in cooling mode), Clim® generates an unequalled thermal comfort with a homogeneity of the wall temperatures and of the air temperature in any point of the room.
Its almost unlimited power capacity of 600W/m2 for heating and 550W/m2 for cooling enables it to cover heating and cooling needs at all latitudes of the globe.
Pure Clim®, disinfection of your indoor air
UVC sterilisation is a particularly effective way of sterilising the air in a room. Used for many years, particularly in hospital operating theatres, this process removes viruses and bacteria from the air by destroying their DNA structure.
The longer the air is exposed to UVC radiation, the more effective the disinfection. Thanks to the installation of UVC light sources directly in the plenum between the structural slab of the room and the Barrisol Biosource® sheet, the Barrisol® Pure Clim® system allows an unequalled air purification.
With this configuration, the treated air injected into the plenum is exposed to UVC radiation throughout its journey inside the plenum. Due to its large volume, the exposure time is particularly long and therefore the disinfection is very effective.
As an example: for a 20m2 room (5 x 4 m) served by 800 m3/hour of treated air, the exposure time to UVC radiation of an air molecule before it exits through the air slot will be more than 20 seconds. This is almost 50 times longer than the exposure time in an air handling unit. This means that the air is exposed to the germicidal radiation for a sufficiently long period of time to remove all viral and bacteriological loads from the air.
Thanks to the use of 2 Barrisol sheets especially conceived to be perfectly tight to the UVC, the UVC radiation cannot escape from the plenum to reach the volume of the served room.
Our produits Clim® products are composed of a profile structure made of more than 80% post-recycled aluminium and 100% recyclable, making the raw material reuse circuit even more environmentally friendly.
They integrate the latest generation of toile Barrisol Biosourcée®, sheet, which is also 100% recyclable and whose plasticizer is of vegetable origin making up to 30% of the total composition.
Made of light materials, some of which are 100% recyclable and re- cycled, Clim® solutions minimise the carbon impact of your buildings, they have a B-s1, d0 fire rating and an A+ air emission rating.
The fabrics in the Biosourced® range contain a plasticizer made from plants. Our eco-citizen approach, for more than 50 years, has consisted in using only 100% recyclable materials.
The plant-based plasticizer is used in the composition of the Biosourcée® satin fabric up to 30% and up to 10% for the translucent version.
The tests guaranteeing air-conditioning were carried out with Biosourcée®, membrane, a product that is ideal for thermal diffusion due to its composition. In addition, Biosourced® membranes comply with with the ODDY test.

Implementation of a modular and flexible solution allowing the addition or removal of partitions according to the defined grid. Thanks to the use of the special Barrisol partition profile, the spaces can be converted at will. Terminal units with very low noise level, installed in the false ceiling of technical spaces.
Barrisol Biourcée A15 microperforated ceilings for acoustic treatment.
The realization of a 3D BIM model of the installations, numerical simulations CFD (Computational Fluids Dyna- mics) as well as acoustic studies allowed us to calibrate the Barrisol Clim®solution according to the requirements of the owner and to simulate the forecast performances.
The actual performance was tested in situ by the Danish Institute of Technology. These tests validated the theoretical results and confirmed the achievement of the most restrictive thermal comfort level of the Danish Indoor Climate Label, i.e. Class A, with notably imperceptible residual air velocities (less than 0.18m/s) but also a sound emission of less than 35dBA in open spaces and 30dBA in individual offices.
