UFAD systems use a raised floor to create an air distribution plenum to improve indoor environmental quality and modularity of design. UFAD uses stratified airflow to improve the ventilation effectiveness and indoor air quality of the interior space by delivering air at a low velocity through the raised floor directly into the occupied zone; allowing the air to naturally rise to a ceiling return, pulling contaminants and CO2 away from occupants.
UFAD systems also improve flexibility and control. UFAD allows for easy diffuser reconfiguration in reaction to office occupancy and layout changes. Each diffuser can be equipped with personal comfort controls so that occupants can adjust the amount and direction of airflow in their space.
Aesthetically, UFAD eliminates the need for drop ceilings and reduces the amount of service distribution space allowing for larger windows with greater daylighting and access to views.
