MaxAir Vent Panels

Vent Panels

Laird new patented MaxAir vent panel product line provides an innovative cost effective approach for providing increased airflow and EMI protection for telecommunications hardware equipment such as fans and server racks. This nickel copper plated polycarbonate honeycomb material provides a rigid medium eliminating the need for costly frame designs. This frameless design allows greater airflow through the entire honeycomb surface and ease of installation through its press-to-fit assembly. The MaxAir vent panel provides greater durability and flexibility than traditional aluminum vent panels. Varying densities of material are available to meet specific levels of rigidity requirements. The honeycomb cell size can be 0.125″ (3.18mm) or 0.250″ (6.35mm) in standard thicknesses of 0.250″ (6.35mm) and 0.500″ (12.70mm).

Metallized polymeric honeycomb provides excellent product rigidity and dent resistance

 Eliminates frames, rivets and costly labor to install

 UL 94 V0 rated or intumescent coated versions available for flame resistance

 Increases useable air flow area by 10% to 20%compared to framed aluminum vent panels

 Special features can be machined into honeycomb, such as recesses and rabbet cuts to customize panel

 Half the weight of traditional aluminum honeycomb vent panels

 Compressible conductive perimeter gasket provides extensive tolerance to accommodate variations in shelf widths or vent panel opening dimensions

 Can be manually inserted with slide-in motion or by compression fit utilizing compression stops and minimal hardware
