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 thin layer of warmed air to accumulate at the panel surface. Intake fans pull the heated air through the panel into the airspace. This preheated ventilation air is then distributed throughout the building via heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems, or perforated ducts. InSpire can also be used for solar air drying of crops.
