Commercial & Mechanical Flexibility

One of the most common challenges for an air distribution system in a commercial environment is dealing with churn. Churn refers to the movement of employees and furniture in an office environment to accommodate changing needs. Churn can be extremely time-consuming and costly, particularly when it requires that an HVAC system be reconfigured to accommodate changing loads.

Certain air distribution systems, most notably UFAD, produce a much lower cost of churn. UFAD offers the ability to move diffusers to another location simply by unscrewing and rearranging the tiles in which they rest. With little or no ductwork involved, this can be done quickly and easily by building maintenance personnel. UFAD offers the additional benefit of being able to run cables and wires beneath the floor – an advantage in areas with large amounts of computer equipment such as server rooms.
