Plenum Integrity Guides

The AROK Team. is proud to provide three of the best practices guides to aid in the proper design and construction of an underfloor air distribution (UFAD) system. Trade specific guides have been created for the Architect, General Contractor, and Commissioning Agent extracted from lessons learned through AROK ’s experience working on a wide range of UFAD projects. These guides will help to ensure the proper sealing and reduction of underfloor air leakage in an access floor air plenum. Furthermore, AROK believes a holistic approach to design and construction should be used and recommends regular consultation be held with key individuals on the construction team throughout the entire design process.
