Air Flow Panels/Grates
Tate offers a variety of airflow panels and grates depending on application.
The traditional airflow panel is the welded-steel perforated panel (a solid panel with
holes punched into it), with an “open area” of 25%. Also available is the 25% or 32%
open DirectPerf™ which “directs the air to where you need it.
The 56% open GrateAire™ airflow panel is a die cast aluminum grate, which is lighter,
cleaner and naturally conductive for better static discharge. The larger open area allows
more air to enter the space under less pressure for more efficiency and lower energy
costs. As a result, fewer GrateAire™ grates are needed to achieve the same results for
airflow. Available with optional opposed-blade damper.
Need greater airflow…Tate also offers the 60% open aluminum (25 lbs) and 68% open
steel (49 lbs) DirectAire™ grates, which “direct” more air volume to where it is needed.
Both these high volume grates come with optional opposed-blade damper. Also
available with SmartAire™ automatic VAV controls or PowerAire™ fan-assisted VAV.
