Air Ventilation Through Raised Access Flooring
Although raised floors are commonly used in office buildings and in IT data centers and computer rooms, typically where there is a need to pass cables, wiring and electrical supply. There are many more uses of the type of flooring, air distribution beneath flooring is nowadays becoming a more common way to provide cooling through a building by using the space (known as a void) below the raised floor as a plenum chamber to dispense conditioned air. In computer rooms and data centers, air-conditioning can be added beneath the floor to really help you make use of the space and cool that important technology stack. How do we do this? Perforated tiles are placed beneath where the systems sit allowing cooling air to be directly forced in their direction. Also, modern computing equipment found in data rooms such as servers are often designed in a way to draw cooling air from beneath them and to push warm air out back out into the room through an exhaust. An AC unit will then extract the warm air from the room, condition and cool it then send it back beneath the raised floor in a cycle to cool the systems.
