Breezair to launch new AC concept in UAE
Dubai, July 10, 2010
Breezair, the leading air cooling technology brand from Seeley International, Australia has forged an alliance with Dubai-based air cooling experts, ClimaGulf Trading to launch its range of evaporative air-conditioning systems in the UAE.
Announcing this on Saturday, Sabu C. Abraham, managing director of ClimaGulf, said: 'We are pleased to forge this alliance with a prestigious brand like Breezair, the innovator of natural air cooling technology. Breezair will be a trend-setter for natural air cooling in the UAE, which supports eco-friendly and energy efficient sources of air-conditioning.'
ClimaGulf Trading said with this tie-up it has become the exclusive distributor of Breezair (Seeley International) in the UAE.
With the size of the Middle East market for air cooling systems estimated at 100,000 units per annum, ClimaGulf plans to tap the UAE market in the initial phase before expanding across the region, he noted.
According to Sabu, th evaporative cooling technology from Breezair is ideal for hot, dry climates like the Middle East, as it cools air naturally, effectively and efficiently.
'It is a simple process, wherein the cool breeze is created by hot air passing over water soaked cooling pads. Natural evaporation helps soak up the heat and cools the hot air. The effect created by evaporative air cooling is similar to the cooler conditions found at or near large expanses of water,' he added.
Breezair evaporative air conditioning is suitable for a range of residential, commercial and industrial applications, and is immensely beneficial in partially covered / ventilated places, which require constant flow of cool fresh air and helps in controlling heat build up, smoke, fumes and ensures flow of cool natural air.
Some of the places where Breezair can be used include factories, warehouses, commercial kitchens, outdoor Majlis, kitchens, tents, restaurants (outdoor), airports and hangars, bus stops, zoo, sports grounds, outdoor swimming pools and in poultry farming, said Sabu.
Seeley International said it foresees numerous growth opportunities for this type of air cooling systems in the Middle East.
Kym Garrick, export manager; Asia, Middle East and South America of Seeley International, pointed out that the sales of its innovative Breezair machines was on the rise in the Middle East region where evaporative cooling can be successfully used.
'Even on the coastal areas of the Gulf countries Breezair machines can provide cooling solutions to many commercial and industrial applications. Our cooling systems have been manufactured in a novel way to address environmental and health concerns that are gaining momentum in today’s society,' he stated.
Durgesh Verma, general manager, ClimaGulf, said: 'Breezair is suitable for places where the normal air conditioning system cannot work or be installed. Summer temperatures in the UAE can rise in excess of 45 degree C in factories and warehouses.'
'The unpleasant working conditions could affect the morale of workers and in turn could affect productivity. To continuously use the traditional air conditioning systems in such places would be extremely expensive, and the advanced technology developed by Breezair is an affordable alternative cooling system,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
