The occupied zone is 1.8 m [6 feet] above the floor. This is the area where employees may be working, customers may be shopping or eating, or guests exercising. Typically, velocities in the occupied zone are specified between 0.25 m/s [50 fpm] and 0.7 m/s [150 fpm]. The lower limit is more likely to be found for sedentary activities, such as office work, and the higher limit for high energy acitivities such as exercise. It is important to understand the kinds of activities in the occupied zone to be able to specify the appropriate throws, thus ensuring occupant comfort.
Efficient solution regardless of ceiling height
Depending on the application, FabricAir ducts and dispersion systems can be tailored to suit the specific needs of your building, by using the best flow model or combination of multiple flow models.
For example, in buildings with low ceiling heights, low-throw airflow models are often the option of choice to eliminate drafts. However, if the building has high ceilings and requires heating, high-throw flow models are used to ensure that the air reaches the occupied zone and to help avoid stratification. FabricAir dispersion systems ensure the ideal air distribution regardless of room size and ceiling height. The flexibility of design makes the technology easily adaptable to any applications, which is why we call is a Smart Air Solution.
