KoldLok Wave Grommet

KoldLok Wave Grommet

Part Number: 46-20100

The KoldLok® Wave raised floor grommet takes raised floor grommets to the next level. The KoldLok® Wave, from Upsite Technologies, features a patent-pending wave shaped thermoplastic elastomer that offers the best sealing against bypass airflow, unsurpassed by any brush grommet on the market.

The KoldLok® Wave offers more usable cable area, in fact 169% more usable open area than a leading competitor. KoldLok® Wave is versatile, the split design allows edge-cut tiles to be removed without capturing cables. Like the previous KoldLok® Brush Strip Grommets, the KoldLok® Wave is maintenance free. Once installed the wave shaped material seals and re-seals around cables with no additional maintenance or monitoring required. The KoldLok® Wave is simple to install and its durable ABS frame and flexible sealing surface engineered to withstand long-term use.

Designed to seal openings in new raised floor cutouts prior to the installation of communications, power, or other cabling. In a study done by Upsite Technologies on 19 computer rooms totaling over 204,400 ft², it was found that 60% of valuable cooled air is not reaching the air intakes of IT equipment. The KoldLok® Wave™ was developed to provide the best seal against this wasted bypass airflow.

  • Sealing Effectiveness – New, patent pending wave shaped thermoplastic elastomer offers the best sealing against bypass airflow, unsurpassed by any brush grommet on the market.
  • Usable Cable Area – Offers 45.5 sq inches of usable cable area, over two and a half times that of a leading brush competitor.
  • Maintenance Free – Wave shaped material seals around cables with no additional maintenance or monitoring required.
  • Configuation – Split design allows edge cut tiles to be removed without capturing cables.
  • Fire Resistant – Thermoplastic elastomer material is rated UL94 HB.
  • Longevity – Durable, impact-resistant ABS frame.
  • Safety Cover – An optional cover is available to ensure greater safety before rack and cable installation.
  • Increases existing cooling unit capacity.
  • Reduces the need to purchase additional cooling units.
  • Improves equipment reliability and extends equipment life.
  • Increases static pressure under the raised floor and improves cool air delivery through perforated tiles and floor grate.
  • Facilitates Cold Aisle / Hot Aisle best practices.
