Airflow panel

Finalist in HVAC/R in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition


Tate’s DirectAire airflow panel delivers airflow to standard server racks at an angle, achieving a 93% rate of total air capture (TAC). The panel eliminates bypass air, which saves operating expenses and can reduce the capital expenditures. The product’s load performance is ideal for retrofits and new construction, easily integrating into an existing raised-floor system. Featuring pressure-equalizing diffusion blades, the panels cool up to 28.5 kW per rack, have 68% open area to deliver 2,600 cfm at 0.1-in. H2O (static pressure), can support a design load of 2,000 lbs, and can withstand a rolling load of 1,500 lbs.
