The KoldLok Mini Raised Floor Grommet from Chatsworth Products Inc. seals smaller cable holes, reduces bypass airflow and increases energy efficiency.

Unsealed cable openings in access floor environments allow 50-80% of valuable supply air to bypass critical equipment, contributing to hot spots, cooling unit inefficiencies and increased infrastructure costs. Designed with brush closures that surround and protect cables, it effectively seals cable holes to reduce bypass airflow around cables in access floor environments.

By decreasing bypass airflow, the KoldLok Mini impacts the cooling effectiveness of the data centre by preventing cold supply air from mixing with hot exhaust air via unsealed cable holes, which allows more cold supply air to be utilized to cool equipment, optimizes the effectiveness of existing cooling equipment and provides greater control for managing increasing heat loads.
