Aisle containment solutions by Tate Airflow

We hold a special relationship with Tate that dates back to 1982.

Ken & Mike Mansfield both worked for Tate for over 10 years, Ken started at Tate in 1982 and worked there until he was made redundant in 1993, when Tate relocated back to the USA.

Ken worked his way up from floor layer to on site supervisor and was involved in prestigious projects such as the Lloyds of London project where he worked for close to 5 years and London Bridge City which was essentially a number of buildings stretching from London Bridge to Tower Bridge.

We are proud to say that we are now Tate’s tier 1 dealer in the UK.

Ceiling Supported Hot Aisle Containment (HAC) System

Tate Airflow Aisle ContainmentThe containment of an entire horizontal column of air helps to improve energy efficiency and capacity. It does this by causing a reduction in by-pass airflow. This method of separating heated exhaust air from cool supply air will aid the efficiency of your data centre. The ceiling-supported hot aisle containment (HAC) system from Tate is an ideal aisle containment solution for your company. Such a system is both easy to install and to modify if necessary, and will provide maximum optimisation for your facility.
