Daikin Middle East and Africa Launches New ESMA Compliant Product Range in UAE
Daikin, the leader in manufacturing and production of cooling and heating solutions, announced the launch of the new ESMA (Emirates Authority for Standardization and Methodology) compliant product range in UAE. The new products were launched during the 2015 Annual Dealer Event, held in Dubai with the participation of Daikin’s key dealers and installers across the Emirates.
ESMA, an UAE’s federal authority, previously announced the new regulations for electrical products which implemented on 1st November 2015. The new regulation UAE.S 5010-1:2014 is an upgrade of the existing standard for non-ducted (room) air conditioners which raises the MEPS (Minimum Energy Efficiency Requirement) by 15% and provides a new energy label (with new standard). Additionally, another new standard UAE.S 5010-5:2011 for commercial and industrial (ducted, chillers, rooftops, VRF) air conditioners with MEPS (minimum energy efficiency requirements) was introduced.
The new products launched include the FTKM Series (cutting edge technology inspired by local needs), that is the first GCC high ambient R-32 inverter split air conditioner in line with Daikin’s worldwide free access 93 Patents on equipment using for using Next Generation R-32 refrigerant. Also, the FTNK Series (beautifully intelligent) the first oriental designed split unit which won The Good Design Award - Japan 2015 is included in the new products launched. The unit has a stylish design made to meet local taste of high end premium life styles. More products included the FTN Series, Ducted series, Cassette Series, Rooftop series, and VRV Series to cover all applications from residential apartments, villas to commercial buildings.
Daikin aims to raise the standards in efficiency by introducing state of the art products, with Inverter Technology, Intelligent Eye & Low GWP (Global warming Potential) refrigerant. All new Products are high in EER (Energy Efficiency Rating), Non HCFC, and Lower CO2 emissions.
Mr Geoff Watson, Deputy General Manager & Dealer Development Manager, expressed the importance of the UAE market and Daikin’s active contribution towards the air conditioning sector by developing a full new product line up specially designed to meet the high ambient conditions. These products exceed local and regional regulator’s MEPS while contributing to the reduction of the energy bill of the country.
He added: Daikin’s focus is to increase and strengthen the dealers’/installers’ capabilities and product knowledge through Daikin’s technical and training support, spare part centers, after sales support and dedicated sales & consulting teams.
