Model Box: Construction envelope built according to specifications presented in manufacturer’s literature, used to establish mechanical, thermal and acoustical performance according to the relevant EN standards.
Sub-range: Part of a range using the same Model Box(es) and grouped under the same designation.
Air leakage factor [l.s-1.m-2]: The air leakage in volume per unit of time, related to the external casing area.
Filter bypass leakage [%]: Air bypass around filter cells as a percentage of rated air volume flow.
IOM: Installation & Operational Manual
