Heavy-duty floor grilles are whisker free

Waterloo Air Products, floor grille, data centre

Waterloo Air Products’ HDFG heavy-duty floor grille is designed to withstand heavy load in high-technology installations such as data centres. It is also suitable for applications with heavy foot traffic. These grilles are made using robust high-grade aluminium extrusions, minimising the risk of zinc whiskers, which can be a problem in older ‘legacy’ type data centres.

They fit most raised-floor systems based on 600 mm-square floor tiles and can be configured to match floor thicknesses from 35 to 50 mm. They weigh 18 kg.

There are two damper options, including a hit-and-miss damper within the body of the grilled itself, which allows lower-height installations.
