The Evolution of Perimeter Underfloor Air Distribution Design

Posted by Chris Burroughs on April 20, 2021 at 8:38 AM

Perimeter offerings that provide flexibility and efficiency

The future of commercial office design faces a number of challenges, including a shift away from densely occupied open office concepts and a heightened concern for occupant health. North America continues to adopt newer energy codes that task design firms to further reduce energy consumption. In addition, indoor air quality (IAQ) has arguably become a principal element of building design.

Although several air distribution systems can be designed to succeed at both of these elements, underfloor air distribution (UFAD) offers significant flexibility and IAQ improvements over traditional air distribution approaches. While the interior zone design has changed little over the years, the perimeter offering has evolved significantly.

How CFD Optimized Cooling in a Battery Energy Storage System

One of the most frequent questions that customer and reps ask us is “Can you model this?” Even though the answer is always a resounding yes – we love a challenge – every rep and customer is still
surprised at the broad array of applications that benefit from a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis. This means that a myriad of designs currently in use in different sectors of the building industry could have been improved.
