The sub floor space in many data centers used to look like a spaghetti maze of cables or a storage room for computer boxes. However, those obstructions had a major impact on the performance of under floor air delivery. To improve cooling efficiency, many data centers are clearing out those boxes, managing cables and paying better attention to the sub floor conditions. Clear floor tiles not only provide a quick glimpse of the general condition of the plenum space but also allow for seeing displays indicating temperature and air pressure underneath the tile. This can be valuable information in recognizing cooling issues before they become dangerous to critical equipment.
Also, more data centers are using chilled water supply and return pipes to cooling cabinets, in row chillers and heat exchangers. Clear tiles allow for easy monitoring of gauges to determine water temperature and pressure. They can also be useful in ensuring there are no leaks in pipe connections.
