Upsite Technologies and Tate Access Floors Partner to Promote Raised Floor Environments
Two respected leaders for data center solutions are coming together to jointly promote the versatility, efficiency, and other defined benefits of using a raised floor environment in new data center buildings. Upsite's product lines, KoldLok Grommetsand HotLok Blanking Panels, are engineered to maximize the cooling efficiency of data centers in raised floor environments by eliminating bypass airflow. Tate's newly developed Direct Aire, SmartAire, and Power Aireproducts achieve similar efficiency goals by allowing data centers to deliver exactly the appropriate amount of air needed to cool equipment where it's needed most. "Together, our companies' solutions address the need for promoting the highest efficiency environment for data centers. This will result in higher energy savings and lower costs for our customers," said Ken Sowards, President of Upsite Technologies.
Upsite Technologies and Tate Access Floors will kick off their partnership at Data Center World Expo in March. Tate has done extensive research to integrate Upsite's KoldLok products with its raised floor tiles at the factory, reducing time and labor costs for installation. The two companies will also be jointly producing white papers, advertisements, and other educational material supporting raised floors. "Our primary message is that the raised floor has evolved over time and still remains the best solution for data centers," continued Mr. Sowards, "our combined solutions and knowledge can add greater value to the data center market as data center and facilities managers seek solutions for achieving higher efficiency and energy cost savings."
