How to overcome the common problem of structural pillars or columns when designing a data centre space?
Independent IT service and business solution specialist SDC (Part of the Sovereign Business Integration Group) encountered this challenge when developing their data centre in Hertfordshire.
Rittal offered the unique approach of incorporating the columns into the cabinets and cooling system. Fully sealing columns into cabinets and aisle containment systems can deliver improved efficiency in areas that are not conducive to efficient airflow, as well as utilising the maximum floor space available.
Completing phase two of the ground floor data hall, comprising of a further 80 Rittal TS IT Cabinets and 4 Cold Aisle pods, Rittal were able to solve the problem through a bespoke cold aisle pelmet based system. Cable management was used to good effect within the racks.
Cold aisle containment technology from Rittal maintains constant temperatures and precise humidity levels, ensuring all key functions are maintained.
