Data Centres & Clean Rooms

Data Centres & Clean Rooms

Spiralite ductwork is ideally suited for use in data centres and clean rooms. Not only does it offer a meaningful reduction in the carbon footprint/embodied energy of the installation, but also generates substantial energy savings in the subsequent operation and maintenance of the HVAC system.

As our world generates more and more data and consumes more and more energy to process that data and make it available, the more demanding the cooling requirements. Energy efficiency is now being prioritised by data centre managers who are looking for optimal airflow efficiency, airtightness and thermal control to save money and reduce risk.

Furthermore, its use in modular sections makes for a very quick and easy installation process, with a significant weight (about 80%) and space (up to 30%) saving and a simple joining system.

Data centres and clean rooms typically have the following specific requirements:

  • Robust system not susceptible to breakdown/downtime
  • Optimisation of airflow efficiencies
  • Maximisation of airtightness
  • Optimisation of thermal efficiencies
  • Optimal climate control at the specified temperatures and humidities
  • Minimum breakdowns and disruptions
  • Energy conservation and cost savings
  • Reduced AHU capacity = cost and space savings, less floor area required

Spiralite ductwork is ideally suited to this environment in that it is:

  • Lightweight and easy to transport and install
  • Robust and can take greater positive and negative pressures (as often caused by hepa filters) than the metal equivalent
  • Is virtually airtight and does not leak, with a class C rating at 2500pa
  • Highly energy efficient given the airflow efficiencies, rounded shape and optimal insulation
  • Very cost effective and typically less expensive than the metal plus lagging equivalent, with many other tangible benefits (aesthetics, acoustics, health & safety, etc.)
  • Easier to clean and maintain on a regular basis to reduce wasted energy

…Not only does it offer a meaningful reduction in the carbon footprint/embodied energy of the installation, but also generates substantial energy savings in the subsequent operation of the HVAC system
