WHEN ORDINARY JUST WON’T DO
Demanding HVAC air handler applications often call for turn-key solutions that can only be made by an experienced custom air handler manufacturer of quality equipment. At Daikin McQuay, we’re pros at building and delivering one-of-a-kind products, systems, and solutions that can help you achieve extra-ordinary results.

With almost 200 years of combined HVAC experience, Daikin McQuay's global network of manufacturing/support facilities and 40,000 professionals are committed to developing and providing you with custom HVAC solutions with sustainable, state-of-the-art equipment and processes. We want to ensure that when you select a Daikin McQuay custom air handler, your experience and finished product are second to none.

QUALITY AND SUSTAINABILITY FIRST
At Daikin McQuay, we deliver high performance products that adhere to the toughest specifications and building requirements, as well as the strictest of social and environmental compliance standards. For high static, low-leakage cabinet builds, we can even arrange a factory witness test for you as part of the process. We know, and want you to know, that your custom air handling unit performs to both of our expectations. Rest assured that you are getting a unit that is not only safe, but also socially and environmentally responsible.

FROM CONCEPTION TO DELIVERY
Our custom air handler experts are there for you every step of the way to ensure your air handler is designed, created, packaged, and delivered to your exact specifications. Starting with your concept design in our tailored selection software, our product engineers begin a dialogue with you that continues through all steps in the prototyping and production process.

Our application engineer teams provide guidance on your custom build during all facets of creation. Whether it be support on software, design, building information modeling, energy and acoustic analysis, upgrades, training, installation, maintenance, or any question, we are there to make sure your selection is the right one for you, your building, and customer.

 

CABINET CONSTRUCTION
Choose from a variety of different build options to suit any application including those in OSHPOD and IBC construction. We offer options for stainless steel or aluminum construction, varying steel gauge thicknesses, and galvanized  or pre-painted steel cabinet finishes.
For high static, low leakage healthcare or cleanroom applications, we incorporate welded frame channels and high pressure panels, doors, handles, and seals that provide ASHRAE 111 Class 6 leakage (0.27 cfm per ft2 at +/-8” cabinet pressure).

ADVANCED FILTER OPTIONS
Low Pressure Filters - featuring 2" and 4" angular or flat, cartridge, or bag.
Gas Phase Filters - gas media or blended media to address specific gaseous contaminants or provide broad spectrum filtration.
HEPA Filters - remove 99.97% of all particles greater than 0.3 micrometer from the air path.
PCO Filters - titanium oxide coated filters create photo-catalytic oxidants that render contaminants harmless.

 

2" VARIABLE DIMENSIONING
For demanding applications that require an optimized footprint, our unique, patented 2" inch variable dimensioning feature provides tremendous component width/height sizing flexibility and allows you to configure the optimal air handling system for your job's environment and objective.
 

 

STACKED, SIDE-BY-SIDE....UNLIMITED CONFIGURATIONS
For strict, space-limiting applications, Daikin McQuay's custom air handlers offer unlimited configuration options and footprint flexibility to meet your most complex needs. Limited to room height restrictions? A side-by-side configuration option allows you to build out instead of up. For width limiting rooms, choose a stacked configuration option that allows you build up instead of out.

ACCESS & SERVICE VESTIBULES
Maintenance friendly access and service vestibules can be customized with aluminum diamond treadplate floors for added corrosion resistance and increased traction and support in slippery conditions.

.

 

DIRECT DRIVE, BELT DRIVE, FAN ARRAY OPTIONS
Custom air handler fan selections provide options for maximizing footprint design and can incorporate sound attenuating walls for low decibel operation for sound sensitive areas. Choose from single/dual belt-drive or direct drive fans, or for the ultimate in fan redundancy and easy maintenance, select from our fan array options.

 

 

 

 

UV LIGHTS/ANTI-MICROBIAL PROTECTION
LINER OPTIONS

Logical and cost-effective additions for care facilities where ambient conditions routinely involve high humidity levels. The protection liner and UV lights improve IAQ by diminishing surface mold, bacteria and associated toxins that otherwise can contaminate interior walls, coils, drain pans, and air streams.

EXTENSIVE COIL SELECTIONS
A wide variety of cooling, heating, steam, booster, and evaporator coils with extended coil connections and gasketed air seals are available to provide energy savings, high-efficiencies, and maximum heating/cooling transfer. Choose from aluminum, copper, or electo-coating construction and take advantage of our wide range of tube/fin thicknesses and circuiting for optaining the ultimate in high-quality performance.

 

ENERGY RECOVERY WHEEL
Energy recovery wheels (an AHRI certified component) are an excellent addition to our custom units and offer a cost-effective and efficient method of containing energy costs while meeting ASHRAE 62.1 ventilation requirements. They recover both heat and moisture energy, are factory-installed and tested, and are available in 100% outdoor air or economizer configurations.
 
 

 

MODULAR ASSEMBLY OPTIONS
Our custom modular design allows sections to easily pass through narrow halls and doorways to a mechanical room where they are then quickly joined together using our unique, patented splice collar design. This lowers installation costs by avoiding in-space construction and is ideal for retrofit applications.

ROLLER CAM DOOR HANDLES
Custom high filtration units operate at extreme pressures. To help minimize air leakage, we incorporate strengthened door handles with roller cams that ensure door seals remain air tight.

INWARD SWINGING DOORS/INSIDE DOOR HANDLES
For air handling applications where positive pressure sections are required, Daikin McQuay offers inward swinging doors, as well as inside door handles for easy serviceability.

TEMPERED ROUND WINDOWS
Factory-installed tempered Plexiglas windows structurally create the strongest and tightest seal available and are ideal for custom units in high static/low leakage applications.

ROBUST CABINET CONSTRUCTION
Double wall,R-13 foam-injected panels with welded gasketed frame channels provide ASHRAE 111 Class 6 leakage for demanding filtration applications like healthcare or cleanroom facilities.
