For data centre use

The all round steel contruction includes Patented, intermingled airflow vanes for directional airflow. With a 32% open area protected from corrosion by anti-static Sparklite white powder coat finish. Designed to fit Kingspan access floor systems.
DirectPerf angles the airflow toward the server rack to significantly improve energy efficiency and reduce bypass air. DirectPerf provides nearly the same cooling capacity as a standard 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 2m IT rack.
Tested in accordance with EN13264 for ventilation for buildings. Floor mounted air terminal devices.

Further information
Stringers are recommended for us with Airflow panels, Side channels are avaiable in a variety of heights to match adjacent solid panels.
For optional additional airflow control a Multi-zone Opposded Blade Damper can be added to this system.
