During the design of data centers, professionals often face the question of raised floor systems versus the use of an overhead cable tray while designing cabling distribution and air handling systems. Twenty years ago, this wasn't even a discussion, as virtually all data centers used raised floor systems, although it has now become a heated debate. While a case can be made for both options, there are certainly many reasons raised floors have remained the industry standard in data centers across the United States.
Perforated raised floors are often used in clean rooms, computer rooms, data centers, large high-end offices, and spaces that require good ventilation. The perforated raised floor is designed to provide excellent cooling to manage the heat load in mission-critical facilities. However, if you want to optimize the ventilation of the perforated raised floor and create the most efficient air conditioning system (UFAD - Under Floor Air Distribution) for the space, it is necessary to properly and correctly lay the perforated raised floor, which also includes selecting the right raised floor perforated tiles according to different environmental needs.
With science and technology advances, the clean room, also called dust free workshop, has become an indispensable working area for electronics factory, medical, food, and other industries. The selection of clean room floors is based on product construction technique, installation and more factors. Now, we bring you four common clean room floor panels with the difference, installation, construction, applications and choosing tips.
Cleanroom flooring systems must take account of the whole production process and materials must be chosen that will not give rise to airborne molecular or particle contamination. At the same time they must withstand harsh cleaning regimes and strong cleaning agents and disinfectants
The bulk of the contamination in a Cleanroom resides on the floor. It is important that consideration be given to the best flooring solution for your application.
Elevated floor system, which is also termed as access floor system, is a raised structural floor that is placed on a reinforced concrete slab. The elevated floor system consists of a several panels, as shown in Figure-1, which are installed on vertical adjustable pedestals as it can be noticed in Figure-2. The pedestals are fixed on the concrete slab using suitable means for instance adhesives or mechanical fixings.
There are many reasons to design or retro-fit a work space with raised access flooring (RAF). RAF systems create value from the bottom up by overcoming the restrictions of traditional flooring and creating a work space that is highly reconfigurable, efficient, productive, safe and organized. Because every space is different and every design is guided by specific requirements, we decided to compose a list of 5 benefits that raised floor systems can deliver to just about any application.
In most cases, a data center’s under floor is also its air plenum. Not cleaning beneath a raised floor can result in contaminants being drawn into sensitive computer equipment, which can cause overheating and shorten their life.
To maximize your investment in your Raised Floor, regular maintenance is a must. All raised floors require preventative maintenance to insure safe operating conditions for equipment and personnel. Listed below are the requirements for proper raised access floor maintenance and care:
It's worse than cleaning out the garage. It's cramped, stuff is piled and tangled everywhere, and what's worse, a lot of it is alive! And like a bunch of snakes, you're afraid that if you touch something, it will bite -- only this "bite" might be an outage that could cost you your job.
