Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) June 15, 2012
Upsite Technologies, Inc. the “pioneering company in airflow management solutions” announces the KoldLok 60” Extended Grommet, an addition to the KoldLok raised floor product line and the award winning, patented LOK Family of Solutions™.
The KoldLok 60” Extended Grommet is engineered to seal a wide variety of new, existing and unique openings, such as those found under PDUs, around columns and other perimeter penetrations. The longer extrusion makes it easier for customizable modification and simple installation in the raised floor. The KoldLok 60” Extended Grommet is available with both 3” and 6” brushes.
“The KoldLok 60” Extended Grommet is a great sealing solution for data center managers to employ in their data center. Upsite understands the dilemma data center managers face when trying to seal unique openings and our new KoldLok Extended Grommet offers customizable solutions,” said Erez Borowsky, Vice President of Marketing, Product and Sales for Upsite. “The KoldLok product line offers a series of products for sealing openings in the raised floor and the KoldLok 60” Extended Grommet is another great option.”
Based on measurements at multiple data centers, on average 60% of valuable conditioned air is not reaching the air intake of IT equipment due to unsealed floor openings. This lost air, known as bypass airflow, contributes to IT equipment hotspots, cooling unit inefficiencies, and increasing infrastructure costs. KoldLok products specifically address bypass airflow and its detrimental effects on data center cooling. Using KoldLok, HotLok® and AisleLok™ products is a pre-requisite to any cooling strategy.

Upsite Technologies leveraged the experience and knowledge obtained at the Uptime Institute to create its initial energy-efficiency products and services including the first KoldLok® product, the Integral grommet. Upsite continues to successfully engineer, design and manufacture a series of precision sealing solutions from our award winning, patented LOK Family of Solutions™.
