DirectAire 19424 Al Aluminum 24" Directional Airflow Floor Panel - Anti-Static - for Tate Bolted stringer systems

The DirectAire Al is an all aluminum lightweight directional airflow panel for Tate Bolted stringer systems, 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 Aluminum Grate Design
  • Interchangeable with ConCore and All-Steel Panels as well as other panel systems upon test and verification
  • 60% Open Area without a damper
  • Supports over 18kW per Rack @ 0.10"H2O
  • Panel Size: 24" Square
  • Panel Height, corner to bottom of lip: 1.19"
  • Total Panel height: 2.19"
  • Panel weight: 24.6 lbs
  • Removable by hand
  • Directional Airflow for 93% Capture Index
  • SparkLite White anti-static powder coat

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.

Directional airflow panels maximize the financial performance of any new or existing data center. The precise delivery of air reduces bypass airflow allowing new facilities to reduce the number of CRAH units.

Retrofits can set CRAH units with fixed speed fans to standby mode or adjust variable fan drives to operate at a lower static pressure, saving energy. Likewise the 93% Capture Index eliminates the need for a full containment system. The facilities overall cooling capacity will also be improved allowing for the addition of IT equipment without capital investments on infrastructure.
