Daikin adds VRV 5 one-way blow cassette

BELGIUM: Daikin Europe has announced the addition of a one-way blow cassette to its VRV 5 air conditioning range.

Specially designed for hotel rooms and office spaces, it includes a special suction flap, which fully closes, allowing the cassette to blend seamlessly into the room when not in operation.

With expanded capacity classes, the one-way blow cassette covers cooling capacities from 2.2kW for well-insulated rooms, up to 7.1kW (8kW heating) for larger spaces. 

The new cassette integrates into Daikin’s VRV system, offering dedicated models for both R410A (FXKQ-A) and R32 (FXKA-A) refrigerants.
