March 2017 - Chatsworth Products’ New Raised Floor Grommet Mitigates Bypass Airflow with Efficient, Affordable Design

Chatsworth Products’ New Raised Floor Grommet Mitigates Bypass Airflow with Efficient, Affordable Design

AGOURA HILLS, Calif., March 3, 2017 — Chatsworth Products (CPI) recently introduced its newly designed Raised Floor Grommet, which features an extra barrier to better block bypass airflow—a best practice for today’s data centers.Raised Floor Grommet - 13671P_ALONE_RGB72.jpg

CPI’s Raised Floor Grommet features a dual-layer brush and integrated EPDM (synthetic elastomer) membrane that forms a superior seal around cable bundles, preventing the waste of conditioned air, which commonly referred to as “bypass airflow.” Bypass airflow is detrimental to the efficiency of a data center, as it leads to hot spots and an increased burden on the cooling system, ultimately leading to higher infrastructure costs.

“We are excited to offer our new Raised Floor Grommet to the data center market. The additional EPDM membrane between the brush layers provides a superior seal to traditional raised floor grommets that utilize a brush-only approach,” states Duke Robertson, CPI Product Manager of Open Systems.

The split, two-piece design of the Raised Floor Grommet is particularly well-suited for retrofit applications as it can be installed around existing cable bundles without disrupting the network. Additionally, the frame and sealing components are made from durable materials that will not break or deform from repeated use.

CPI’s Raised Floor Grommet is a simple and economical solution that effectively supports industry-recognized best practices for airflow management in the data center. For more information, visit the product page.
