Types of HVAC Casings

We supply the following HVAC and Perimiter casing types:

Floor Mounted

The patented quick access design of our floor-mounted AC covers enables a single person to access the interior unit for regular cleaning and maintenance.

A key benefit to the floor-mounted AC cover is that it allows for pre-fabricated cut-outs for vinyl flooring and skirting boards to ensure there is no need for noisy and messy on-site cutting.


Wall/Ceiling Mounted

Air conditioning units in mental health, custodial and even SEN schools are more susceptible to tampering and vandalism. With this in mind, there is a need to provide a cover which is built around safety to the end-user. 

A ceiling-mounted AC cover provides an ideal solution to provide protection from damage and vandalism because they can be fitted at height.


Flat Panel

We understand that every environment is different, and with this, will present its own unique requirements. That’s why we have developed the flat-panelled AC covers. 

Our AC covers can be retrofitted over existing systems to deliver a solution for use in hospitals, mental health units, SEN schools, pupil referral units care homes, nurseries, school, colleges and other public access buildings.



Perimeter casing requires careful designing to ensure that the efficient functioning of an air movement system will not be impeded by a casing form that suits the aesthetic of the interior environment.

With perimeter casing, you’ll not need pipe boxing, and it can provide easy access for cleaning and maintenance. 




HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) casings are used to enclose and protect HVAC equipment while maintaining functionality and safety. Here are five common questions about HVAC casings:

What is the purpose of HVAC casings?

HVAC casings serve multiple purposes, including enclosing and protecting HVAC equipment from external elements, improving safety by preventing direct contact with internal components, and enhancing the overall aesthetic appearance of the HVAC system.

Are HVAC casings customisable for different equipment sizes and configurations?

Our HVAC casing systems are designed to be customisable to accommodate various equipment sizes and configurations. This ensures a proper fit and functionality for different HVAC units, making them suitable for a range of applications.

Do HVAC casings impact the performance or efficiency of HVAC systems?

Well-designed HVAC casings should not significantly impact the performance or efficiency of HVAC systems. The casings are engineered to allow proper airflow and ventilation, ensuring that the enclosed equipment functions optimally. It's essential to choose casings that are compatible with the specific HVAC equipment.

How do HVAC casings contribute to safety and compliance?

HVAC casings are an essential safety feature, especially in public spaces or areas with high foot traffic. By enclosing heating elements, fans, and other components, they help prevent accidental contact, reducing the risk of injuries. Additionally, compliant HVAC casings meet safety regulations and building codes.

Are there maintenance considerations for HVAC casings?

Maintenance considerations for HVAC casings may vary based on the design. Some casings feature removable panels or access points, facilitating easy inspection and maintenance of the enclosed HVAC equipment. Regular cleaning and inspection may be necessary to ensure optimal performance and longevity.
