system’s operation
 
Space heating
In hybrid applications
Matrix
Air 
cladding not onlyprovides fresh air heating but may also be congured fordomestic hot water or space heating as well, particularlyin milder climates or for sports complex applications, forexample.
Process heating
 Thanks to the wide range of air ow and temperaturecombinations possible using
Matrix
Air 
, it may bereadily incorporated in process air heating where suchvariations are required for applications such as cropdrying.Outside air is drawn through perforations in the dark-colored,sun-warmed metal façade. As the air passes over and throughthe panel it is heated. A ventilation fan creates negativepressure in the cavity behind the panel to draw air throughthe holes. During summer operation our system congurationreduces the hot air that may enter the HVAC system thanksto the typical placement of our air outlet in the lower portionof the collector.
CONFIGURATIONS
Ventilation and Make-up air systems
In most cases the
Matrix
Air 
cladding will be used in afaçade installation to preheat incoming make-up orventilation air though our system may also be integratedinto architectural rooftop fences or roof top air intakesto accomplish the same result. The heated air may bedirected to a ventilation system for distribution throughperforated ducts to destratify hot air that accumulates atthe ceiling, thus reducing heat loss through the roof andexhaust while providing uniform air distribution andtemperature.
IDEAL SCENARIOS FOR THE
Matrix

SYSTEM
• New building construction or renovation• LEED projects (Up to six LEED points attainable)• Improved indoor air quality is required• Installation of metal exterior walls or replacement of exterior siding• Environmental concern• Desired enhancement of corporate image

Solar Air Heating System
PERFORMANCE*
During sunny days,
Matrix
Air 
systems can preheat intakeair by 30˚ to 50˚F (17˚-30˚C), over ambient temperaturesdepending on the ow rate. In northern climates snow willreect up to 70% of the available solar radiation, and 40%of this radiation is reected on the cladding surface,substantially increasing the system’s performance. Thefollowing graph shows the temperature rise attainableversus air ow/ft² of collector area at various sunlightlevels. Under constant conditions energy output is directlyrelated to the sunlight levels striking the cladding.The
Matrix
Air 
system works on cloudy days, sinceeven diused light can represent up to one quarter of the total solar radiation available on a sunny day. Oursystem can even help cool your building in the summer.The cladding shades the interior wall and the hot air thatrises to the top of the wall escapes through the perforations,keeping the interior wall much cooler. Bypass dampers areused to bring unheated ambient air inside the buildingdirectly from outside, providing superior air quality evenin summer.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Wide assortment of proles and colours adjusteasily to a wide variety of building scenarios andaesthetics
• Integrating the solar collector into the building
façade yields cost eciency
• Adaptable to a wide variety of single use or hybrid
(solar air and water heating) applications
• The electrostatic effect of the air moving through
the perforations provide excellent fresh air ltrationproperties further improving indoor air qualitywithout increased maintenance cost
• Stand alone ventilation air systems• Visual make-up air unit fences• Process air heating• Air preheater for:• Make-up air systems• Heat pumps• Geothermal loops• Hot Water
