Cable seal prevents air loss in plenum-cooled floors

March 20, 2007
March 20, 2007 -- PDU Cables has introduced its Air Guard cable seal, designed to help prevent air loss in plenum-cooled floors when access holes are required for cable routing through the floor.

March 20, 2007 -- PDU Cables, a North American manufacturer and supplier of power-distribution cable assemblies, has introduced its Air Guard cable seal, which is designed to help prevent air loss in plenum-cooled floors when access holes are required for cable routing through the floor.

"The Air Guard cable seal's unique design makes cable routing simpler and more flexible," contends PDU Cables' CEO Duncan Lee. "It is the only product of its kind with a removable back brush that makes cable installation and relocation easy and inexpensive. Floor tiles can be removed without having to disconnect equipment, and large connectors can be run through a smaller opening size. Plus, its heavy duty spring-loaded latch fortifies each unit and makes it easy to remove and replace the back brush."

According to the company, the product significantly reduces cool-air loss and conserves energy. It also helps prevent expensive electronic equipment from overheating by improving static pressure to cool data-center equipment. In addition, it seals cable openings with overlapping brushes that also prevents under-floor contamination.

The Air Guard seal can be installed in any location on the floor panel. Each seal includes mounting hardware and cutout template. An optional safety cover fits over the Air Guard to provide a solid surface for increased durability and safety when not housing cables. Flame retardant ABS polycarbonate material provides a finished look on all raised floor panels, and the product's solid construction and textured surface compliment all floor coverings, according to the company.
