Openings in new raised floor cutouts require sealing before installation of communications or power cabling. Integral grommet is equipped to effectively address this concern in the most reliable manner.

As per estimates comprehended at multiple data centers, unsealed floor openings prevent close to 48% of conditioned air from having access to IT equipment.  Loss of air in this manner generally termed as bypass airflow results in IT equipment hot spots, cooling unit inadequacies and mounting infrastructure costs. U-Flex products are designed as the perfect solution to discourage bypass airflow and its consequences with respect to data center cooling.

Installing U-Flex air-plugs brush grommets during the initial installation of the raised floor in a data center is a best practice technique that will ensure the efficiency, capacity and reliability of the facility. As using and detailing Air-Plugs brush grommets in the data centers, you are protecting the integrity of the raised floor plenum and the airflow through the space. From a cost and time management perspective the facility manager will be able to speed up deployment of equipment without having to remove panels for cutting. And over the life of the building technicians will be able to add and move new equipment without the worry of snagging cables or affecting the airflow management within the space.
