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
- 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
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.
