Whether planning a new or expanding an existing data centre, it is essential to source the safest, most flexible and cost-effective raised floor and over-head infrastructure. Making the right decision will define the strategy and operational life of the whole data centre, future proofing it for years to come. The use of an innovative load bearing ceiling solution will give data centre and facility managers the maximum flexibility to reconfigure their data centre infrastructure in accordance with ongoing requirements – by saving time, material and labour costs. Daxten will present a cutting-edge structural suspended ceiling solution at the Data Centre World 2016 exhibition being held at ExCel, London on the 12th and 13th April (Stand G30). In addition the company will show innovative and efficient solutions for the distribution of power, the optimisation of the cooling infrastructure and comprehensive monitoring of the data centre.

Fast and simple installation of busbars, lighting, cable trays, security cages

This new structural suspended ceiling solution is an engineered load bearing ceiling system that is both a suspended ceiling and a support grid in one cost effective package. The system is based on a high grade aluminium extrusion with an M10 threaded slot along the entire grid which proves an easy way to add or remove equipment and services whilst reducing labour costs. The design allows for the hanging of various services such as busbar, lighting, cable trays, and security cages in the data centre. Furthermore, the solution allows the suspension of hot aisle containment plus chimney systems whilst at the same time creating an upper air plenum for hot air return to the cooling handlers.

Maximum flexibility for the data centre infrastructure

The easy to fit ceiling tiles can be supplied in a variety of different sizes, colours and brands. With the ceiling panels in place, DC and FM specialists can easily create a hot air plenum when used in combination with a hot aisle containment or a chimney system.

With all the equipment supported directly by the structural suspended ceiling, no struts or other supports will penetrate the ceiling panels, reducing dust and keeping air leakage to a minimum in the data centre. With the threaded slot in the grid extrusion, it is easy to add, change, or remove any installations.
