ATAS International's InSpire perforated aluminum wall panel is a solar collector and fresh air heating system.

 

ATAS International Inc.

ATAS International's InSpire perforated aluminum wall panel is a solar collector and fresh air heating system. InSpire panels are installed on light-gauge framing mounted to a wall and create several inches of airspace. Sunlight heats the aluminum and causes a think layer of warmed air to accumulate at the panel surface. Intake fans pull the heated air through the panel into the airspace. The preheated air is distributed throughout the building via heating, air conditioning, ventilation systems and perforated ducts.
