1 Access Floors Architect s Guide for Detailing & Specifying Access Floor Air Plenums SustainAbility to the Power of 1

2 Access floor air plenum integrity begins with proper design and specification. 2

3 Architect s Guide for Detailing & Specifying Access Floor Air Plenums Plenum Integrity is one of the most important aspects of designing, constructing and maintaining an underfloor air delivery (UFAD) system. It is vital that the entire design and construction team does their part to ensure the underfloor plenum is sealed properly. This process starts with the architect. As the architect designing a building with a UFAD system you have the responsibility of providing specifications and details for constructing a plenum with proper sealing and integrity. Every contractor working in the plenum space needs to be aware of their responsibilities and should be equipped with the information they need to successfully complete their work while maintaining plenum integrity. Tate Access Floors is providing the following plenum seal integrity guidelines for consideration. The recommendations contained within this guideline are based on lessons learned through working on a wide range of UFAD projects. To that end, Tate 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. There are six primary recommendations. An overview and explanation of each recommendations is provided below followed by proposed specification language and construction details. Design: Pre-Bid Meeting: Pre-Construction: Mock-up: Specifications and performance requirements that create awareness and responsibility for plenum sealing integrity should be included in all divisions of the CSI specifications. Drawings detailing the construction requirements for the underfloor air delivery plenum should also be provided. The requirement for pre-bid meetings to inform all subcontractors of the plenum sealing and mock-up construction requirements should be specified. Pre-construction meetings should also be specified to reaffirm the plenum sealing requirements to each sub-contractor division. Specify the construction and testing of a mock-up that includes all actual building conditions relative to the UFAD system. Quality Inspections: Specify the use of a commissioning agent to audit the construction process, perform air leakage testing on the mock-up and final installation, and provide detailed reporting to the GC that ensures the construction of the UFAD system follows the specified requirements. 3

4 Downloadable Specifications & Details Visit Tate s website to download the sealing details and recommended specification language in this guide. The details are available in AutoCAD dwg and PDF file formats. In addition a Microsoft word version of the specifications in this guide can be found in the architectural details under the Product & Spec section of the website CSI Specifications for Consideration The following is Tate s recommended access floor air plenum sealing specification language to insert into the CSI specifications for subcontractors. All of the specifications can be downloaded on-line at DIVISION 01 - GENERAL REQUIREMENT SPECIFICATIONS Pre-Bid & Pre-Construction Meetings: All sub-contractors intending to bid on or awarded work on the project are required to attend pre-bid and pre-construction meetings respectively. The purpose of these meetings is to review all air plenum specifications and details including but not limited to pre-construction mock-ups and plenum sealing requirements. 4

5 Quality Control: All walls passing through the access floor must have gypsum board extending completely to the slab and be sealed at the slab line. All penetrations into cavity walls and slabs for air ducts, plumbing pipes, electrical conduit and voice/data cabling must be completely sealed. All seams and/or holes that have been created for or resulting from the work performed by a specific trade should be properly sealed by that trade and whenever possible performed prior to the installation of the access floor. Quality Control: Special inspections must be conducted by an independent quality auditor or commissioning agent to ensure that plenum sealing work is performed by all subcontractors in compliance with specifications and drawings. Inspections shall occur as work progresses and whenever possible in the presence of a representative from the general contractor. Reports of inspections will be submitted to the general contractor. Plenum Mock-Up & Testing: All subcontractors responsible for constructing or penetrating the underfloor plenum must participate in the construction of an on-site plenum mockup consisting of all planned plenum components, penetrations, seams and openings. The mock-up plenum is to be inspected and tested by an independent commissioning agent for air leakage to verify that it was constructed and sealed in accordance with specifications and drawings including meeting the air leakage requirements. Building Plenum Inspections and Tests: The constructed plenum is to be inspected and tested by an independent commissioning agent for air leakage to verify that it was constructed and sealed in accordance with specifications and drawings including meeting the air leakage requirements. Air Leakage Requirements: Total air leakage from the plenum should be no more than 10% of the design airflow for category 1* leakage, and 10% of the design airflow for category 2 leakage when tested at the typical static pressure range of Pascals. Note:There are two basic categories of UFAD air leakage. Category 1 leakage occurs outside of the intended occupied zone. Category 2 leakage is plenum air that leaks into the occupied zone through spaces other than the designed air distribution devices such as diffusers. Category 2 leakage is unique to UFAD systems because all of this leakage goes into the occupied space whereas in a traditional ducted overhead system, all leakage and short-circuited air enters the return plenum and will not reach the intended zone. *The allowable Category 1 leakage number used to commission UFAD systems is higher than overhead distribution. This higher number is used because the entire HVAC system from supply point to diffuser is being tested in a UFAD system. By comparison overhead systems typically only test the trunk or high and medium pressure ducts. The test being performed on a UFAD system would be the equivelant to using the following equation on an overhead system: Leakage = supply duct + VAV box + low pressure duct + flex duct + diffuser & flex connection. 5

6 DIVISION 03 - CONCRETE SPECIFICATION - Cast in Place Concrete The concrete contractor is aware that the space beneath the access floor will be used as an air delivery plenum and as such will take the necessary precautions when installing their work so as not to impact the integrity of the plenum space specific to air leakage and cleanliness.
