Single-zone Opposed Blade Damper - For DirectAire AL, DirectPerf32, & GrateAire (Field-Mounted)

Tate's Single-zone Opposed Blade Damper offers a dramatic airflow improvement over traditional manual slide dampers. It features a nearly infinite range of adjustment and very little airflow resistance. Easy access through the panel's surface allows for quick adjustment of the damper for accurate airflow balancing for IT hardware with fixed airflow requirements. The damper's drop-in design allows for easy installation by decoupling the damper from the panel. This means that standard, undampered directional airflow panels can be ordered as needed, with separate opposed blade dampers purchased as necessary.

  • Provides more airflow at 100% than comparable slide dampers
  • Adjustable from top without removing raised floor panel
  • Quarter turn adjustment for 0-100% range of damper
  • Field-mounted dampers are attached to the bottom of the airflow panel - Field-mounted using self-tapping screws
  • Airflow panel-mounted to minimize air leakage between panel and damper
  • Supports both 24" and 60cm raised floor systems
  • Designed for use with 32% DirectPerf, DirectAire Al Panels, and GrateAire® Panels
  • Made from anodized extruded aluminum
  • Damper Weight: 3.8 lbs. (1.7 kg)
  • Dimensions: 22.5" length x 22.5" width x 1.75" depth (57.15 cm length x 57.15 cm width x 4.45 cm depth)
