Trinity Grammar is a leading private boys school located at Ashfield in western Sydney. They have a Sports Hall built in 1989 that suffered from severe overheating in summer. The hall also contained an unusual roof structure that limited the options for cooling solutions especially large bladed fans. Trinity
approached Airius to design a solution that offered cooling air movement in both the large sports hall as well as the upper level bleachers. Airius provided a successful solution for both applications.

Virgin Active is a new high-class gymnasium chain and their flagship facility is located in the new Barangaroo development located on the Sydney CBD foreshore. In order to save energy and air conditioning ductwork and provide a cooling solution that offered minimum impact on the activities, David Shreve, Virgin Active’s consulting mechanical engineer from DSA and Associates, approached Airius about installing some of their unique and architecturally aesthetic R20 EC ‘Eyeball’ fans, to provide cooling around the space, space, while also minimising Air Condtioning ductwork.

Eco – Climate Solutions (ECS) mechanical contractors in Perth, were asked to refurbish the air conditioning and electrical works at the new 99 Bikes store in Belmont in Perth, WA. Their plan was to remove the ceilings and all the ductwork and they approached Airius about a design solution for mixing and distributing the conditioned air around the space, without ductwork. Airius proposed the use of 7 x Airius S1 Pearl fans and a speed controller, to be located in suitable positions to suit the customer’s requirements and ensure mixing and distribution. Across the summer of 2018-19 the solution has been a great success.

This new Toyota car showroom is located just north of Melbourne, Kilmore, in Victoria. The Dealer Principal, Graeme Dove, wanted to ensure that there was controllable air movement across the year to work in conjunction with his air conditioning system. Improved thermal comfort in summer and winter for his customers and staff, as well as energy savings, were his priorities.

Optimum Control Technologies (Optimum) approached Airius Oceania to do a trial in the cold aisles of the Foodland Frewville store in Adelaide in 2014. The trial was hugely successful and there are now IGA, Coles and Foodland stores using the Airius Air Pear technology to improve thermal comfort in their cold aisles in Australia.

The Axeman’s Hall of Fame Museum in Latrobe, Tasmania had been uncomfortably cold in winter for many years despite increasing the heating capacity. Airius was approached by Adrian Luke from DMS Energy to trial Air Pears to improve the comfort for the building’s users and reduce heating costs. The installation of 4 x Model 25 Airius Air Pears at the Museum proved a resounding success with heating use reduced by 60% in two days and customers thrilled with the new level of comfort in the space.

Jeff Feltham from ‘PacPines Pool and Spa’ in QLD and Howard Gumbley from ‘Hilton Brown Pools‘ (NZ) both approached Airius to find a solution to the condensation inside their indoor pools using their unique Air Pear Air Turbines. Both installations proved very successful and more indoor pool operators in both Australia and New Zealand are using the unique Airius Air Pear Air Turbine technology to reduce condensation and improve the amenity of the pool enclosure.

St. Thomas Aquinas Primary School needed to address the prohibitive heating costs for running their school hall. Their gas fired heating system needed to run continuously in order to maintain comfortable internal temperatures for students and teachers, resulting in high energy bills and carbon emissions. After installation of the Airius system comfortable temperatures were easily achieved and maintained. The workload on their HVAC system was also heavily reduced, making significant savings on running costs and CO₂ emissions.
