Getting the conditioned air out of the floor and cooling the effectively and efficiently cooling the IT equipment is a primary concern. MPL Technology are distributors of the Triad floor grille, which is specially designed to provide better air dissipation and stratification than standard floor grilles.
The Triad managed airflow grille is specially designed Hi-Plume Stratification fin creates a dispersed pattern of airflow out of the tile
Standard flat bottom floor grilles have a major design flaw that leads to jet stream, short cycling and negative airflow. In tests carried out by the Uptime Institute it was found that only 28% of air coming through a tile actually passes through the servers. The Triad managed airflow grille is different, its specially designed Hi-Plume Stratification fin creates a dispersed pattern of airflow out of the tile. The fin causes the air to “bend” outwardly allowing it to flow into the servers and reach servers at the top of the racks.
