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.
  • Lightweight cast aluminium design
  • Directional Airflow
  • Removable by hand
  • Surface adjustable damper options
  • EN13264 Tested
  • Guaranteed compatibility with all Kingspan Access Floor systems.
  • Improves overall cooling capacity, allowing for the addition of IT equipment without capital investment on infrastructure.
