Composite Air Design

Why is Composite Air Design important?

Composite Air Design (CAD) provides lifetime corrosion resistant air-handling units (AHUs)1 with superior thermal performance, weight and durability that will withstand almost any chemical or harsh saline environment.

What do Composite Air Design air-handling units do?

  • CAD AHUs provide heating, cooling and ventilation for facilities in coastal or other challenging environments.
  • Their increased thermal efficiency and the elimination of replacement costs can provide an ROI as low as 3 years.
  • Due to lightweight composite construction, CAD systems can create instant savings on construction due to a decreased need to reinforce the structure and roof of the building. Heavy machinery needed for installation is also minimized.

Where should Composite Air Design be?

  • Buildings in coastal areas
    • Port authority buildings
    • Shipyard offices
    • Public assembly/stadiums
  • Facilities in harsh or chemical environments
    • Laboratories
    • R&D facilities
    • Manufacturing plants
  • Structures with low load requirements

Who should be interested?

  • Mechanical engineers/design professionals
  • Building owners
  • Mechanical contractors
  • Building facilities personnel

Important Terms

1An air handler, or air handling unit (AHU), is a device used to regulate and circulate air as part of a heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) system.
