Data Centres

Our wealth of experience working on some of Europe’s key data centres makes us an ideal partner for these highly specialized projects. Data centres need to draw a large amount of power reliably and safely, while also being sustainable and economical. Working with our brand partners, we can deliver the high-quality solutions that data centres need to ensure operational excellence and business continuity for their customers.

Data Centres

Managing massive amounts of sensitive information, data centres are a specific challenge when it comes to power delivery. They need to be totally safe, secure and reliable and also as efficient as possible in their power use. We understand these needs and can deliver solutions that ensure a lean installation and the highest standards of operation.

Cable management – we can plan, supply and install the bracketry and cable baskets needed to route and organise even the heaviest load of cables. Our solutions have been tried and tested in some of the busiest data centres in Europe. They are easy to install and maintain, and simple to extend without disrupting operations when new cooling or storage is needed.

Fire safety – prefabricated, fire-rated steel cable containment solutions keep cabling clean, safe and organised to reduce fire risk from the high-capacity cabling, keep fire contained and keep essential systems running in the event of an emergency.

High-capacity, scalable cabling – our underfloor cabling and modular cabling solutions are all designed to accommodate the large floorspace of a hyperscale building. They make installation a simple task, even in the largest project. They are also geared towards simple maintenance and upgrading – it is easy to pinpoint and swap out any problem sections, or add new sections, with minimal disruption or interruption to operations.

Automated, self-monitoring lighting and access – DALI2 lighting control and IOT automation combine to produce a self-monitoring and self-reporting network of devices that minimises the need for maintenance staff on site.

OBO Data Centre Containment FRA12

We have built strong relationships with some of the world’s leading suppliers of electrical equipment for data centres and commercial buildings, and we are proud to partner with them to bring the very best components to our clients.

Fire-rated steel cable containment – working with the world-class German manufacturer, OBO Bettermann, we have developed a range of steel cable-containment products and systems that are tested to DIN 4102 part 12, and meet the highest safety standards, specifically IS 3217 and IS 3218, as well as BS 7671 and BS 8519. Our cable containment solutions are available in E30 (30 minutes) or E90 (90 minutes) versions.

High-current power busbars and modular wiring – keeping heavy, high-load cabling to a minimum not only saves installation time and cost, it improves efficiency and safety during operation. With our high-current busbars from Wieland, we can create flexible, modular designs that replace the traditional hard wiring of individual circuits. Large expanses of cabling become manageable modules, while still retaining the high performance necessary in a data centre.

DALI lighting controls and KNX building automation – Using a combination of DALI lighting and passive infrared (PIR) systems, the movement of people through the data centre can be detected, anticipated and identified. This means that intruders can be repelled while technicians and other invited people can be accommodated through responsive lighting and climate programming. Our solutions, from Delmatic and JUNG also provide self-monitoring, automatic reporting of faults or outages and smart metering.
