Tate is addressing the cooling infrastructure demands in today’s raised floor data center environment with a full line of airflow management and in-floor cooling solutions. The continued adoption of high density equipment, virtualization and cloud computing strategies requires the cooling infrastructure of a data center to be capable of adapting to high and often variable heat loads while offering superior energy efficiency.

Tate’s line of in-floor cooling products for raised floor data centers can nearly eliminate by-pass air and save significant energy. Using directional airflow and variable-air-volume dampers your data center can instantly react to any variation in utilization to match cooling with the heat load at the rack level. Tate can also provide fan assisted airflow to eliminate hot spots or implement high-density equipment in a current raised floor facilities without significant capital investment.

In addition, we offer a full line of containment systems and air sealing grommets designed to help reduce by-pass airflow, improve energy efficiency and increase data center capacity. More information about each of our data center products can be found below.

Raised Floor Data Center Products:

  • Unlike other grates the DirectAire and DirectAire X2 angle the airflow toward the equipment achieving a 93% Total Air Capture (TAC) rate by a standard server rack.
  • Tate’s SmartAire electronically controlled variable air volume damper used in conjunction with DirectAire adjusts the amount of air to meet the specific needs of the rack it services.
  • Tate’s PowerAire fan assist module is designed to provide a blast of cooling through an individual airflow panel. This powerful solution is ideal for solving the toughest hot spots in a data center.
  • Tate’s full line of Grate panels and Perforated panels provide the solution for any data center configuration.
  • Tate’s Opposed Blade Damper allows the user infinite airflow adjustability when it comes to airflow from any airflow panel in Tate’s portfolio.
  • Tate has partnered with Upsite Technologies, the makers of KOLDLOK, to bring you the most advanced wire & cable penetration Air Sealing Grommet available, assisting in the elimination of by-pass air.
  • Tate offers a full range of hot and cold aisle containment products. ContainAire PartitionStrip DoorsRetracting RoofsHinged and Sliding Doors all work together to create the perfect containment solution to meet any data center equipment layout.
  • The Tate Rack Shield isolation system is designed to capture subfloor supply and dedicate it to the computer thermal load, thereby ensuring that cold supply air will not spill across the raised floor.
  • Tate’s Modular Blanking Panels are the best way to eliminate the migration of hot and cold air through unoccupied areas of an IT equipment rack.
  • The CRAC Hood Extension is a ceiling return duct that connects the top of the CRAC unit directly to a ceiling return plenum greatly increasing cooling capacity and efficiency by capturing hot exhaust air and channeling it directly into the CRAC unit.
  • Tate’s In-Floor Velocity Adjustor, installed between subfloor stations, is designed to eliminate low pressure in the subfloor supply by controlling airflow velocity.
  • Tate’s high volume ceiling Return Grille directs large volumes of hot exhaust air into the drop ceiling plenum enabling the hot air to exit freely minimizing mixing with the cooling air flow.
