Tate's Directional Perf directs airflow from the raised flow plenum to data center racks where cooling is needed. Courtesy: Tate Inc.Tate’s Directional Perf, a perforated directional airflow panel, helps direct airflow from the raised floor plenum to the data center racks where cooling is required. Directional Perf delivers airflow to standard server racks at an angle, increasing the rate of total air capture (TAC) and helping eliminate bypass air, which saves operating expenses and reduces capital expenditures on cooling equipment in new facilities. The perforated panels feature a 25% open area. The panel can also be used as an alternative to aisle containment. To eliminate bypass airflow and mixing of airstreams, 93% of the airflow supplied through the Directional Perf panel is delivered directly to the face of the rack. Unlike other airflow panels that deliver airflow in a vertical plume from the floor, the Directional Perf provides effective containment, thereby reducing the need for rigid containment structures.
