A key requirement in many technology rooms and data centres is the provision of a raised access floor. Whether it’s required to help distribute weight loads, provide a supply air plenum or allow cable and pipework distribution, it provides an important function.
Installation of the correct type and specification of raised access floor is critical to ensure it can safely support your proposed equipment loads. It must factor in areas such as grade, height, fixing method and stringer use to name but a few; all which needs to be taken into account when designing and installing a raised access floor.
Of course, it’s not just the floor you have to consider. Details such as access ramp and step wells are also needed to comply with building regulations for ingress and egress in respect to staff and movement of equipment.
A raised floor is more than just a piece of the physical room structure. It can form part of the air conditioning system, by providing a supply air plenum to evenly distribute cool air to the IT equipment. This makes it all the more important to design a floor which incorporates all components necessary to provide optimum airflow.
Typically this can include the provision of air grilles tiles, underfloor air barriers and floor grommets; all of which can provide important functions in sealing the floor void and ensuring correct air flow distribution, which is critical to any effective air conditioning solution.
