The KoldLok 6" Round Raised Floor Grommet now with more usable cable area

"Our entire KoldLok product line is the most effective solution for sealing openings in the raised floor" said Lars Strong, Senior Engineer at Upsite.

Upsite Technologies, Inc. the “pioneering company in airflow management solutions” announces the KoldLok 6” Round Grommet, an addition to the KoldLok Raised Floor Airflow Management product line and part of the award winning, patented LOK Family of Solutions™.

Similar to the KoldLok 4” Round Grommet in design and technology, the KoldLok 6” Round Grommet now has 22.55 sq. inches of usable cable area which will accommodate large cable bundles and PDU plugs commonly found in the raised floor of a data center. The KoldLok 6” Round Grommet uses a Hybrid Brush Technology (HBT) design using thermoplastic elastomer for superior sealing quality and exceptional airflow management. A great feature of the round grommet is the split design which allows product installation or removal without disturbing cables.

“We received feedback from the data center market about needing a solution for sealing around large cable bundles in the raised floor and we responded with the KoldLok 6” Round Grommet,” said Lars Strong, Senior Engineer at Upsite. “The product is quick to install and is a very effective tool for managing critical airflow areas. Our KoldLok Round Grommets and our entire KoldLok product line are the most effective solution for sealing openings in the raised floor and I am confident our partners and the market will agree.”

Upsite Technologies also designs and manufactures a series of data center containment solutions including HotLok® server rack products and AisleLok™ aisle airflow management products. KoldLok products specifically address costly bypass airflow and its detrimental effects on data center cooling. Using KoldLok, HotLok® and AisleLok™ products is a pre-requisite to any cooling and containment strategy.
