The KoldLok® Surface XL raised floor grommet is designed to fit in active raised floors to seal large cable openings without affecting operations. The KoldLok® Surface XL pulls apart into two halves and is then positioned around the cables.
The Surface XL has a larger ‘skirt’ that fits around the standard Surface Mount KoldLok® grommet. Based on measurements at multiple data centres, between 50% – 80% of conditioned air is not reaching the air intake of IT equipment due to unsealed flooring openings. This lost air, known as bypass airflow, contributes to IT equipment hot spots, cooling unit inefficiencies and increasing infrastructure costs.
By sealing cable cut-outs with KoldLok® raised floor grommets you can address this bypass airflow, so drastically improving the cooling capacity within the data centre and preventing the detrimental effects bypass airflow has.
Designed to seal a variety of existing raised floor tile cutouts and allow flexibility of removing tiles without capturing cables.
Based on measurements at multiple data centres, on average 60% of valuable conditioned air is not reaching the air intake of IT equipment due to unsealed floor openings. This lost air, known as bypass airflow, contributes to IT equipment hotspots, cooling unit inefficiencies, and increasing infrastructure costs. KoldLok® products specifically address bypass airflow and its detrimental effects on data centre cooling.
The Surface Mount Grommets facilitate recabling and allows tiles to be moved without capturing cables.
