The better cold air can flow unhindered through the raised floor, the lower the cooling load and the more energy efficiently the hardware can be cooled.

If you want your data centre to meet current energy standards, increase the efficiency of the cooling system and thus considerably cut energy costs, the recommended best practice is to optimise the flow of the cold air in and above the raised floor up to the racks. And this is easy to using our PlenaForm baffle in the raised floor to partition off and direct the flow of cool air in the sub-floor, seal cable openings in the raised floor with our KoldLok or CoolControl seals and distribute the flow of cold air from the raised floor across the entire rack unit with our CoolControl tiles so that the entire rack unit is optimally cooled at every height.
