Data Center DiretAire Aluminum Airflow Panel

DirectAire® AL

Double the cooling capacity of a typical grate

The DirectAire® AL is an all aluminum lightweight directional airflow panel that uses patent-pending technology to angle the air toward the equipment. This means that the airflow delivered through the airflow panel is entering the face of the server rack, providing increased cooling capacity and energy efficiency.

DirectAire® AL

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. Directional airflow eliminates the need for a full containment system. The facility's overall cooling capacity will also be improved, allowing for the addition of IT equipment without capital investments on infrastructure.
