Our PCM Eco-Energy Tiles work to bring thermal mass back into buildings. PCM Eco-Energy Tiles take their cue from nature: materials absorb heat when they melt and release heat when they solidify. Basically, FREE ENERGY FROM NATURE!
As the ice melts at 32ºF it absorbs tremendous amounts of energy and keeps the cooler at 32ºF until fully melted. If a shock winter cold event were to take place, plummeting temperatures below that 32ºF (0ºC) level the water would then begin to re-freeze and actually “heat” the cooler. The result is a cooler that stays well within the 32ºF range without the need for any heating or cooling equipment.
Now, add doors and windows to your cooler and people constantly creating heat inside the cooler. Would you even consider removing the ice from the cooler in favor of spending money on refrigeration? Absolutely not! You’d be sure to keep that ice in the cooler and use refrigeration to supplement and manage the ice, so it is constantly freezing and melting.
Eco-Energy Tiles are 24"x24" and designed to sit on top of your existing drop ceiling.
Yes. Eco-Energy Tiles are made primarily of inorganic PCMs due to their inherent safety concerning flammability (Class A Fire Rated). They are non-toxic, have a high density, and are abundant in nature.
By placing Eco-Energy Tiles inside your structure, the PCM acts just like ice inside a cooler to help regulate temperature. But unlike ice, our PCM will freeze and melt at a chosen temperature setpoint, allowing it to constantly and passively freeze and melt.
