The biggest challenge in today’s data center is thermal management, which is no surprise considering the average heat load generated per equipment cabinet has doubled since 2000.
Sealing cable openings provides a cost-effective airflow and thermal management solution. As much as 50% of cold air in the access floor escapes through cable access holes. Bypass air is expensive because it is air that is air-conditioned, but is not cooling equipment.
Koldlok Grommets feature a double layer brush closure of durable Nylon 6 bristles that form a tight seal around cables while allowing for easy access to cables.
Grommets are easy to install in the middle or along the edge of floor tiles and allow large bundles of cables and large power connectors to pass through the opening.
