The intelligent approach to sound reduction

One-stop-shopping: Daikin launches low sound enclosure for VRV and Sky Air

Press Information, May 2021

Strict sound regulations typically apply in inner-city or residential areas where buildings are built closer together. This means that choosing highly-efficient HVAC equipment to decarbonise the premises might pose challenges to sound regulations. The latest-generation commercial heat pumps are already designed for quiet operation, however for sound-sensitive projects, this new low sound enclosure further reduces sound power levels by up to 10 dB(A). Additional calculations of sound, capacity or efficiency are not needed since all essential values are factory measured.


Vienna, May 2021 – Available from May onwards, the new Daikin sound enclosure specifically designed and tested for Sky Air Alpha-series, Sky Air Advance-series and VRV 5 S-series outdoor units reduces the sound power level by up to 10 dB(A). 


Designed to be discreet

The Daikin sound enclosure has a highly aesthetic finishing and a smooth surface. An anthracite colour (RAL 7016) underlines its unobtrusive looks. Its tailor-made design fits our outdoor units perfectly and keeps dimensions to a minimum.


Tested and approved: values that you can rely on

Daikin sound enclosures offer a solution specifically designed for the low height Daikin Sky Air and VRV heat pumps. Thoroughly factory-tested sound power (ISO 3744), efficiency and capacity guarantee flawless system performance. This makes it possible to determine in advance how the installed system will operate. It also simplifies the layout and planning because separate calculations are not required. Sound power values in both cooling and heating according to ISO 3744 are available, as well as sound pressure and low noise operation mode values. 


The solution that meets the need

The sound enclosure is optimised so that airflow and capacity are as close as possible to the standard conditions. Separate air inlets and outlets combined with the perfect fit of the enclosure prevent air short-circuiting for efficient sound reduction and minimised pressure drop.

The new sound enclosure is also easy to install: as a self-supporting unit, it can be placed on any flat surface. The side panels of the sound enclosure can be conveniently unlocked with quick-release buckles for easy access to key components when maintenance work is required. If needed, an optional drain pan and heater are available. Existing outdoor units can also be upgraded with the sound enclosure.
