Tate DirectPerf® Panel 25%- SparkLite White
|Notes||Discontinued Feb 2021|
We are keeping this page up as an archive to those looking for an explanation as to what happened to the original 25%.
With a 93% Capture Index, wasteful by-pass airflow is virtually eliminated. The precise delivery of air to the face of the rack reduces by-pass air, allowing new facilities to in-turn reduce the number of CRAH units.
Tate's DirectPerf® has been designed to meet the cooling requirements typically associated with high air volume grate panels while still supplying the same air volume as a standard perforated panel. With the ability to cool twice the capacity of a standard panel, directional perfs can improve a facility's overall cooling capacity, allowing for the addition of IT equipment without the capital investments on infrastructure.
Tate's DirectPerf® maximizes energy efficiency and the overall capacity of any new or existing data center by nearly eliminating bypass air. The precise delivery of air to the face of the rack reduces by-pass air, allowing new facilities to in-turn 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 88% Capture Index eliminates the need for an aisle containment roof. The facility's overall cooling capacity will also be improved, allowing for the addition of IT equipment without the capital investments on infrastructure.
This is a special type of panel and does not fit with all systems. Panels fit only our bolted stringer systems. .
Key Performance Characteristics
- 25% open area delivers 765CFM @ .1” H2O when installed without a damper
- Directional air flow achieves a 93% Capture Index
- Cools up to 6kW per rack at 0.10" H2O
- Reduces capital expenditures on cooling infrastructure by 40%
- Over 40% annual fan energy savings
- Easily integrates into an existing 24inch raised floor system
This is a special type of panel and does not fit with all systems. Panels fit only our bolted stringer systems. They do not fit our woodcore kits. Panel size is 24" square. These panels have no damper and have a white conductive textured surface.

These panels are sometimes called a perf, an air flow panel, air tiles, perforated panels, air vents, grates and louvers.
