The whole idea of cooling systems in a Data Centre is to keep the Servers and ancillary rack mounted equipment cool. In a typical Data Centre, only 30% of the conditioned air gets to where it’s needed, the racks. The other 70% is getting mixed with the heated exhaust air from the racks and servers. This means that a typical Data Centre could use 2.5 times more cooling than necessary and still have hot spots.
10 to 15 years ago, most data centers had an average of 1 kilowatt (kW) per rack or cabinet. In today’s world rack densities can be up to 20 kW, and most expect this number to continue to increase.
Using containment to aid in Data Center Airflow Management can cut energy costs because if the hot and cold air cannot mix, the air conditioners don’t have to work as hard to get cool air to the front of servers. That can mean the ability to raise the temperature in the room and ramp down air handlers with variable speed drive fans, this then gives the possibility of introducing free cooling systems to save even more power.
The separation of the hot and cold air results in increased return air temperature back to the air conditioning unit. This improves the overall cooling capacity and provides colder air to the racks.
This difference increases cooling capacity by up to 40%.
Did you know that every degree raised in the air conditioners set point = 4% savings in cooling costs? Data center containment solutions allow you to increase your set point by 4°C – 5°C.

NEED HELP WITH MAINTENANCE?
With each passing year the access floors weight-bearing capacity decreases as pedestals and stringers deteriorate. In addition, floor panels may delaminate, gaps may appear, or floor panel edges end up at different levels resulting in trip hazards.
Raised Floors New Zealand have over 25 years installing, strengthening, levelling, and replacing raised access flooring and offer a full-range of flooring services to ensure you never have to worry about your flooring system again.
We suggest that every raised floor be inspected yearly by a qualified Raised Flooring maintenance company to report on any flooring panels and sub-structure problems then providing repair alternatives and solutions.
We have the experienced personnel that are happy to provide this service and then once a solution has been decided upon then no matter what the brand of Access floor we have access to the parts needed to correct structural problems and maintain to manufactures specifications.
To gain the maximum life from your floor here are a few tips
- Rotate panels at least twice a year between high and low traffic areas.
- Replace damaged, warped, wearing, and de-laminating panels immediately.
- Replace any damaged or wearing components as needed, such as pedestals, stringers and gaskets and panel edge trim.
