DirectAire 18989 X2 Steel 24" Bi-Directional Airflow Floor Panel - Anti-Static - for Tate Bolted stringer systems

Tate's 18989 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.

1. System Design Load is based on permanent set ? 0.010" and is verified by loading panels in accordance with the CISCA concentrated load method but with panels installed on actual understructure instead of steel blocks. (Testing on blocks does not represent performance of an actual installation.) Ultimate, Rolling, and Impact Load tests are performed using CISCA Test Procedures.
2. Safety Factor is Ultimate Load divided by Design Load.

The elimination of bypass air saves operating expenses in existing facilities and reduces capital expenditures on cooling equipment in new facilities. DirectAire's superior load performance is ideal for retrofit and new construction, easily integrating into your existing raised floor system.
