Frequently the cooled air flowing through raised floor panels does not reach servers and IT equipment at top of the server cabinets. Hardware is not cooled properly, overheats and can fail. High-plume airflow and high cold air pressure can resolve these problems. Increasing static air pressure via the CRAC units only increases energy costs and rarely gives the desired effect - pushing cold air to the top of the server racks. The result of using inefficient perforated floor tiles is enormous power consumption, ever increasing energy costs and hotspots which shorten the life of data centre hardware. There is another solution that is cost effective and efficient - CoolControl Tiles are passive perforated floor panels that have 65% airflow throughput ensuring cooler hardware and lower energy costs.
Patented fin design with high airflow for optimum cooling and efficiency
Conventional perforated raised floor panels achieve airflow rates of 20-30%. The CoolControl Tile achieves 65% airflow as well as directing conditioned air to the upper most levels of server racks. The higher the flow rate, the higher the volume of cold air that reaches your rack equipment. It is critical that the perforated raised floor tiles provide enough cold air via highplume stratification. Only then can the cold air reach the top of the cabinets to cool the upper most hardware. Sufficient cool air is the primary factor in preventing system failures and downtime created by overheating and hotspots. Cool-Control Tile‘s Hi-Plume Stratification Fin scoops air to the upper most servers, while ensuring middle and lower servers also receive required cooling capacity. Through this unique design server temperatures can be decreased by 3-8°C while simultaneously lowering energy consumption. In choosing the most effective
perforated floor tiles, remember the following: The higher the airflow rate and the higher the airflow stratification the lower the required cooling capacity resulting in energy and cost savings.
Heavy duty panels for high loads with integrated handles
Not only does the airflow rate matter, but also the strength of the perforated floor tiles. These panels often carry heavy loads including fully loaded cabinets. Conventional perforated floor tiles barely manage to carry a maximum weight of 200 - 300kg - without tightened edges. Our CoolControl perforated raised floor panels can reliably carry between 680 and 1360kg depending on the version. Of course easy access is also required. The patent protected integrated Lift-n-Lock® handles provide safe, balanced lifting and placement of tiles without danger of trapping fingers or toes. Integrated handles eliminate the need to lift adjacent tiles to remove the vented floor tile. CoolControl Tiles can pay for themselves in nine to twelve months through higher cooling efficiency and lower energy costs. When including the longer life of hardware through the reduction of hotspots and the time it takes to replace it, the ROI is a matter of months.

Triad's patented Slotted ICE™ Airflow panels are designed with our proprietary River Cooling System©, to provide optimal data center and server farm hot spot cooling for any imperial or metric raised floor systems that have maximum stringer width of 1.75”.
These panels are built to provide 1500 to 4000 lbs. of concentrated load capacities while versatile enough to be adjusted with the patent pending corner adapters either vertically or horizontally to flush mount to most all imperial or metric raised floor systems, regardless of age.
The patent pending Integrated Dual Handles provide safe, balanced lifting and placement of panel without danger of trapping fingers or toes while eliminating the need to search for suction cup lifters.
Triad's Hi-Plume Stratification Fin provides increased upper server cooling dropping upper/middle/lower server temperatures 5-15 degrees while lowering energy consumption 4% for every degree.
As is seen on the video Triad’s patented Hi-Plume Stratification fins, coupled with Triad's River CoolingSystem©, directs cooler air from the lower open plenum (where air normally passes by standard design airflow panels) to the upper heat stratified plenum of server racks.
The turbulent air delivery created by the patented Hi-Plume Stratification fin mixes with the vertical and horizontal heat boundary layers causing improved balanced cooling for the operating equipment.
Airflow Utilization Efficiency© (AUE) is measured by comparing the supply air temperature to the temperatures at the top of the rack. For example, if supply air temperature is 65 degrees and temperature at the top of the rack is 80 degrees, AUE = 15. By managing to an AUE of 10 or lower, data center managers can reduce cooling costs by up to 40%.
