|For years, data center perforated floor tiles featured a 20 to 25% airflow pattern. This provided sufficient airflow since cabinets rarely had a heat load above 3 to 4 KW. However, modern data centers have cabinets with higher loads and require additional airflow. In response, raised floor manufacturers introduced “high flow tiles” which have perforation patterns of 55 to 65%. In most scenarios this is an over-correction, resulting in a negative impact on static pressure distribution. In some data centers, it has become an elaborate exercise to determine the right number and position for these high flow tiles.
The NEW AF-320 perforated tile provides the higher airflow (32% Open Area Floor Tiles) today’s cabinet loads require without disrupting static pressure in other parts of the data center. The all steel AF-320 can be used with nearly any existing raised floor system and features an ADA approved hold pattern with a dynamic load rating of 1500 lbs.
Finally you can get the “just right” airflow in your data center.
Available through February 15th for just $135 per panel.
