DENVER, COLORADO, September 14, 2006 - Expanding on its comprehensive array of innovative and intelligent thermal management solutions for residential AV applications, Middle Atlantic Products today introduced its new Quiet -Cool Series™ at CEDIA Expo 2006. Designed to effectively remove heat from critical areas where high temperatures can impact the performance and lifespan of AV electronics, the Quiet -Cool Series comprises three thermostatically controlled, ultra -quiet cooling products for use in open shelving, cabinet and closet environments.

The series includes The Component Cooler; The Cabinet Cooler; and The Closet Cooler, each carefully engineered with residential integrators in mind to ensure easy installation and consistently effective heat removal for a variety of common residential AV applications.

Designed to remove heat from AV components located in open shelving, The Component Cooler removes heat right at the source. The Component Cooler installs directly on top of components that emit large amounts of heat, such as cable and satellite boxes and switches on automatically when a component gets too hot. Small and unobtrusive, Component Coolers can be used individually or in multiples for efficient cooling of stacked components.

For AV systems installed in a custom cabinet or entertainment center, The Cabinet Cooler stealthily pulls heat from within an enclosed space and vents it away from components. Designed in collaboration with residential systems integrators, the Cabinet Cooler incorporates a thermostatically controlled ultra -quiet fan unit and installs easily, requiring only a standard hole saw and drill. The attractive vent cover can be painted to match the aesthetics of any entertainment center.

Larger home AV systems that reside within a closet require a significant amount of ventilation to ensure that components do not fail from excessive heat. The Closet Cooler features a solid oak panel that conceals ultra -quiet, thermostatically controlled fans and a matching vent panel (or active intake, depending on model). Closet Cooler panels can be stained or painted to match any room's decor, and installs easily in the top and bottom of a closet door.

All units of the Quiet -Cool Series complement Middle Atlantic Products' range of effective thermal management solutions and reflect the company's pioneering commitment to thermal management in residential AV environments. Products such as the award -winning Ultra Quiet Fan Panel and Proportional Speed Thermostatic Fan Control couple intelligent thermal control, critical ambient noise reduction and aesthetics designed to match the integrators' dedication to detail.

"The new Quiet -Cool Series enables residential systems integrators to install reliable AV systems that are less susceptible to equipment failure as a result of over -heating," noted Mark Tracy, Director of Marketing, Middle Atlantic Products. "Now more than ever, Middle Atlantic Products offers the residential systems community a comprehensive array of thermal, power, cable and rack systems so that integrators can provide wholly integrated enclosure systems for a wide range of home AV environments."
