Room environment

  • Room environment

It’s all about the right atmosphere!

We all know what it’s like – be it at home, in our leisure activities or on holiday, if the atmosphere isn’t right, we don’t feel happy. We’re listless and not really interested in physically strenuous activities.

It’s a similar story at work because our “thermal wellbeing” plays an important role there too. Our attentiveness, concentration and overall performance depend heavily on the environmental conditions around us.

This practical facility enables participants to “feel” the environmental conditions and assess them using various parameters (environmental indices).

Facility resources

  • Adjustable temperature range of +15°C to +35°C throughout environmental chamber
  • Adjustable humidity range of 30 to 70% relative humidity throughout environmental chamber
  • Panel heaters can be connected up to radiate heat in an adjustable temperature range of 10°C to 50°C
  • Variation of incoming and outgoing airflows via the ceiling and/or the floor
  • System for measuring the key environmental parameters
  • Hand-held devices for measuring workplace temperature and humidity

Topics covered

  • Simulation of various environmental conditions in rooms
  • Discovering how environmental conditions affect our sense of wellbeing when performing physical activities ranging from relatively effortless to extremely strenuous
  • Simulation of workplaces in different environmental conditions, including the effect of personal protective equipment on people’s sense of wellbeing
  • Measurement of environmental parameters and assessment of the environmental conditions using various environmental indices
