A new R&D center with a challenging product testing environment needed to be not only compact and reliable, but also energy efficient to contribute points to LEED® Platinum certification.
Due to space constraints, the air handler needed to be disassembled, transported, and reassembled in the equipment room. Demanding laboratory requirements necessitated reliable air handler operation at very high or very low airflow demands.
A custom air handler with a six-fan FANWALL® array helped the project team solve many challenges, including the stringent energy-efficiency requirements and the need for the air handler to have a small footprint.
Air handler installation went smoothly as the uniquely configured unit was designed to fit within a penthouse on top of the building and took up less space than a conventional air handler. FANWALL TECHNOLOGY® offered significant energy savings that contributed to the lab achieving LEED® Platinum status.
