NO OUTDOOR UNIT REQUIRED

World Leading Green Technology

The Polaris Hideaway air conditioners require no outdoor condenser units and are a revolution in the Australian HVAC industry. Manufactured in Australia and MEPS approved the systems are available to suit residential, light commercial and larger commercial application. Built as conventional reverse cycle split systems these units do not need an outdoor space.

Building owners developers and specifiers now have an answer to that always difficult decision.

“Where do we locate the Condensing Units?”
Now there is an answer. “Hide them away – in a ceiling space or plant room and claim back that roof space.”

The Polaris HideAway Series is designed to achieve a Circular Economy framework

This framework offers significant economic, social, and environmental benefits, and will be a key strategy in meeting emissions reduction targets and aligning to the Paris Agreement.

Circular Economy

Residential Applications

Cooling Capacities from 5 kW up to 12kW.

This flexible range is suitable for apartments and residences with a flexible design applications for various building forms. Condensing units can be slimline horizontal format to fit into tight places.

  1. The condensers can be installed up to 6 meters away from an outside wall even further away if high static fan is installed.
  2. When using acoustic lining in discharge air duct noise levels can be whisper quite. Very important in multi residential apartments an where neighbours are close.
  3. The indoor fan coil units can be either slim line ceiling mounted or floor mounted in a cupboard.
  4. Ideal for new installations or retrofitting existing buildings.
  5. Good option to retrofit water cooled units to air cooled local units get rid of large cooling towers and pumps.

Light Commercial Applications

Cooling Capacities from 12 kW up to 28 Kw.

The range incorporates several options for location of condensing units. Condensing sets can be attic style and draw outside air from ceiling space.

 

  1. The condensers can also be installed in an enclosed plant room with only louvres visible from outside.
  2. Condensing units can be built at below 1,000mm high for tight spaces and condenser discharge can be run more than 6 metres.
  3. Horizontal or vertical condenser discharge available.
  4. Slimline ceiling mounted fan coil units.
  5. Vertical floor mounted hideaway fan coil units are also available.
  6. With acoustic duct lining noise break out is extremely low.

Large Commercial Applications

Cooling Capacities from 28kW up to 100kW.

The HideAway range incorporates hidden condensing units that can be in enclosed plant rooms or roof space of commercial buildings. These attic style units are conventional ducted split systems and are an upgrade on the original clunky units available in the early 198os.

 

  1. Indoor units can be located far away from condenser, and both are hidden away.
  2. Because units is not on rooftop corrosion and environmental damage is significantly reduced.
  3. Great option instead of rooftop PAC units. No penetrations no water leak no working at heights.
  4. Condensing units can built to horizontal format to minimise height in ceiling space.
  5. With correct acoustic attention breakout noise is minimal.
  6. Hugely flexible for designers.
  7. Fan coils can be either slim line ceiling mounted, or plantroom installed. Multi a evaporator system available.
  8. Our engineering team can build to order and help out with design for difficult commercial projects.

Small Self-Contained Ceiling Mounted Packaged Unit

Cooling Capacities 3.5 kW and 10kW.

The slimline Hideaway packaged units are popular with architects. Fully self-contained these can be installed in difficult heritage or retail and accommodation applications.

  1. Monobloc format means no interconnecting refrigeration pipework required.
  2. Evaporator and condenser are together.
  3. Highly efficient natural refrigerant up to 60C condensing.
  4. Whisper quiet no breakout condenser noise.
  5. Unit can be installed using basic labour, no specialist technician required for commissioning.
  6. Good option for hotels etc where multiple outdoor units are just ugly.

Great for heritage and apartments

Hidden away – out of sight, out of mind, the Polaris HideAway only makes its presence felt with the consistent comfort it provides. Quiet and reliable throughout the hot Australian summer.

The Polaris HideAway is hidden away in the roof – this is ideal for retrofitting heritage buildings or apartments and hotels where external units need to be avoided

Polaris HideAway Condenser Grilles

No unsightly condensers

Polaris Technologies new HideAway Series opens new possibilities for designers and architects who can now dispense with unsightly exterior units. The units are also extremely easy to install, requiring less plumbing and pipe ducting than existing methods.

Close-coupled System

Hideaway has been uniquely designed to enclose both condensing unit and evaporator into one close-coupled system, facilitating easy removal when renewal of the units is required.

Designed for Easy Retrofitting

Simplified design means at renewal time any control technology upgrades or fan motor technology upgrades can easily be retrofitted. Removal of one top panel provides access by renewal technician to all components making upgrade very easy. There is no connecting pipework or electrical power cables to replace as required using split systems.

Thermal-XR Protection

Many standard split systems have coil failure within a few years. The aluminium/copper coils on the HideAway are protected for life using Thermal XR protective coating. 

Easily Relocated and Replicated

If occupant moves premises the hideaway unit can be relocated. Where a building needs significant usage modifications the Hideaway units can be simply relocated, or additional units installed for repurpose of the building.

Efficient Hydrocarbon Refrigerant

The total cooling efficiency of chemical refrigerants is significantly reduced during high ambient temperatures mostly on rooftops where condensers are located. The Polaris HideAway uses Hydrocarbon refrigerants which remain efficient up to 60°C.

Operating pressure inside hydrocarbon refrigerant units is 30% less than other refrigerants which means less strain on components reduced compressor run time and reduced energy consumption.

No Refrigerant Reclamation Needed

Unlike other AC units with chemical refrigerants, with the Polaris HideAway there is no need to reclaim and destroy toxic refrigerant. Hydrocarbon refrigerants are natural and do not pollute a waterway or produce acid rain if they leak into the atmosphere.
