By manufacturing cable seals for data centres worldwide, Roxtec is working to commit to protecting the safety and integrity of facility infrastructure.
Operating as a private company in Sweden that was founded in 1990, seals by Roxtec help to protect electrical cables that enter into data centres. The company specialises in manufacturing both cable and pipe seals, which are also known as multi cable transits.
Roxtec's products are designed to seal cable and pipe penetrations in order to protect from multiple hazards including fire, water, gas, dust, vibrations, electro-magnetic disturbances, vermin and the risk of explosion.
Avoiding flooding and downtime
The company manufactures for a wide range of leading and essential markets, including power, marine, oil and gas, telecoms, infrastructure, industrial equipment and process industries. It was founded after the invention of the Multidiameter - a technology that utilises module layers that are removable for adaptability to cables and pipes that vary in size.
Roxtec seals are typically used at cable entry points for telecoms cables in network shelters, cabinets, switch stations, communication centres, radio links, rooftop sites and 3G and 4G base station shelters. Its seals have also been used in data rooms, in addition to being used as a cable seal for modular data centres.
Ultimately, data centres help to serve these essential industries by allowing businesses to offer greater customer connectivity in the region they are operating in.
As the demand for AI and cloud-based technologies continues to challenge the data centre industry, it is anticipated that there will be an increase in scalable modular data centres as businesses seek to meet the ever-growing need for data storage.
Cable solutions like those that Roxtec have on offer can work to better support the critical communications infrastructure contained within data centre facilities. The cables are not only built to withstand fire and water, but also extreme weather events and potential issues like rising costs.
Making the data centre more resilient
The fact that the cables are airtight also allows businesses to better control their climate and energy footprint. In fact, Roxtec offers safety seals for its cables to better secure data centres and reduce downtime - which can be costly for organisations.
Roxtec also works in partnership with data centres to protect their server halls against multiple risks. Its sealing solutions aim to help the businesses it works with ensure maximum safety and efficiency during the construction phase and even throughout a data centre facility’s life cycle.
The benefits of these airtight seals allow the possibilities for data centre companies to utilise more sustainable solutions such as cooling systems, thereby reducing risk, energy usage and cost. During a time where data centres are utilising more energy, it is solutions like these that will help facilities to reduce their overall carbon footprint.
Indeed, to meet net-zero emissions targets, data centres must make significant investments in energy efficiency measures.
