Raise Floor Grommets
Sealing cable openings with KoldLok® products provide a cost-effective airflow and thermal management solution.
KoldLok Raised Floor Grommets will:
– optimize your current cooling infrastructure
– mitigate equipment heat loads
– increase data center reliability
Your IT equipment is generating more heat than ever and the cost to cool that equipment is increasing. According to The Uptime Institute, Inc.® electricity consumed by IT equipment is the primary driver of data centre infrastructure costs.
Based on measurements at multiple data centres, 50 – 80% of valuable conditioned air is not reaching the air intake of IT equipment due to unsealed cable openings. This lost air, known as bypass airflow, contributes to equipment hot spots, cooling unit inefficiencies, and increasing infrastructure costs. Sealing cable openings is an essential component of IT equipment reliability and availability.
By installing KoldLok Raised Floor Grommets, you can optimize the effectiveness of your existing cooling equipment and manage the increasing heat loads. The patented KoldLok sealing system specifically addresses bypass airflow and its detrimental effects on data centre cooling.
