Airflow Panels

Tate Airflow has a full line of directional and standard airflow panels to cater to all your data center cooling needs. Our range of cost-effective and energy-efficient airflow panels offer compelling returns on investment and lower operating costs in both new build and retrofit applications.

DirectAire® Al

The DirectAire Al is an all aluminum lightweight directional airflow panel that uses patent pending technology to angle the air toward the equipment achieving a 93% Capture Index. This means that 93% of the airflow delivered through the airflow panel is entering the face of the server rack, providing the highest cooling capacity and energy efficiency of any aluminum airflow panel on the market.

DirectAire®

DirectAire uses patent pending technology to angle the air toward the equipment achieving a 93% Capture Index . This means 93% of the airflow delivered through the airflow panel is entering the face of the server rack, providing the highest cooling capacity and energy efficiency of any airflow panel on the market. DirectAire has a 68% open area and a strong durable design that provides superior load performance. DirectAire is designed for a one-to-one pairing with a standard 42U rack.

DirectAire® X2

DirectAire® X2’s ability to deliver high volumes of air directly and evenly across the face of two server racks gives it the capacity to cool very high density equipment in a range of facility designs. DirectAire X2 is specifically designed for use in cold aisles that are only one airflow panel wide. The panel’s angular throw evenly distributes the majority of the air it delivers directly to the face of two opposite facing racks providing virtual containment when used in conjunction with other airflow management best practices.

DirectPerf 25%

Tate’s DirectPerf Panel uses patent pending technology to angle air towards equipment, achieving an impressive 93% Capture Index. This means 93% of the airflow delivered through the airflow panel is entering the face of the server rack, providing more capacity and energy efficiency than any other perforated airflow panel on the market with a 25% open area. Standard perf panels only achieve 30%-50% Capture Index, allowing the Directional Perf to double a traditional perf’s cooling capacity using the same amount of air.

DirectPerf 32%

DirectPerf 32% angles the airflow toward the server rack to significantly improve energy efficiency and reduce bypass air. DirectPerf 32% provides nearly the same cooling capacity as a standard 56% open area grate using about half the airflow. The panel is designed with a unique combination of directional and vertical perforations which provides evenly distributed air flow across the entire face of a typical IT rack.

Perf Panels

Tate’s Perforated steel panels are compatible with any 24” or 60cm bolted stringer systems. All panels are available with top surface adjustable damper to control airflow volume. The damper can be adjusted from the top and locked into place to avoid tampering. Tate’s perforated panel delivers airflow in a vertical plume and is a cost effective airflow panel for use in contained aisles.

GrateAire®

GrateAire die cast aluminum panels are designed for new and existing data center applications. The high strength, low weight all aluminum construction makes it the ideal solution for use in contained aisles with high foot traffic. Available with or without a damper, it can be adjusted from the top to restrict airflow by up to 100%. With the ability to perform the same amount of cooling as 3 perforated panels without comparable cost, GrateAire is an affordable and cost effective airflow panel, ideal for use in contained aisles.
