The airflow topology, with the forced-air inlet and outlet located above the occupants' head level and located in a non-parallel wall, is divided into two areas: the non-occupied upper area, which contains the air inlet and outlet, with high air velocity levels, used to make contaminant extraction easier, and the occupied lower area, with low air velocity levels, used to ensure better occupant contaminant transport to the upper area and a low draft risk level area.
