In-floor active chilled beams
Tate's beams showcase the benefits underfloor air distribution.
Tate’s in-floor active chilled beams are an energy-efficient perimeter heating and cooling solution that combines the benefits of underfloor air distribution with the efficiencies of water heating and cooling. The beams bring chilled water under the floor to cool air directly at the perimeter of a building, where heat loss and heat gain can significantly impact energy use. In-floor active chilled beams eliminate the need for spider ducting to deliver air to the perimeter and replace perimeter fan-powered boxes under the raised floor, allowing furniture and partitions to be placed freely in the building without concern for maintenance access to equipment. By using segmented or continuous linear grilles along the building perimeter, in-floor chilled beams seamlessly integrate into the design of the space, while ensuring expanded daylighting and access to views typically associated with underfloor air distribution.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
