Jessup, MD, Nov. 26, 2012 -– Raised access flooring firm Tate said that its EcoCore phase change panel is the recipient of a 2012 Product Innovation Award from Architectural Products magazine.
The annual awards program, which recognized EcoCore in the HVAC and energy management category, determines and honors innovation in the development and refinement of buildings-related products.
EcoCore panels incorporate micro-encapsulated phase change materials to save energy and reduce indoor air temperature fluctuations. During the day, the material embedded within the welded steel panel is designed to melt and absorb energy. That energy is stored within the panel during the day and released as the building cools overnight, allowing the PCM to resolidify and release the absorbed heat back into the space.
