Cable Floor Grommets, Infill Pillows and Air Gap Foam

Replacement Raised-Floor Tile

The raised floor grommet is a heavy duty steel raised-floor tile with 2 or 3 large cable cut-outs.

These cable cut-outs are fitted with a double layered brush strip preventing valuable conditioned air from escaping.
The 600mm square tile tappers to 595mm to allow for easy removal , tile height is dependant on the existing tiles but is generally 42mm deep.
These double brushed tiles increase static pressure under the raised floor, and prevent conditioned air from escaping and so improves cooling capacity, This also saves time by removing the need to cut existing floor tiles
An all in one solution.

KoldLok Surface Mount Raised-Floor Grommets

The KoldLok surface mount raised-floor grommets are designed to fit in active raised-floors to seal cable openings without affecting operations.
The surface mount unit pulls apart into two halves and is then positioned around the cables.
Based on measurements at multiple Data Centres, between 50% - 80% of conditioned air is not reaching the air intake of IT equipment due to unsealed flooring openings.

This lost air, known as bypass airflow, contributes to IT equipment hot spots, cooling unit inefficiencies and increasing infrastructure costs. By sealing cable cut-outs with KoldLok grommets you can address this bypass airflow, so drastically improving the cooling capacity within the data centre and preventing the detrimental effects bypass airflow has.

Aluminium Floor Mount Grommets

Aluminium Floor Mount Grommets consists of a solid aluminium frame containing nylon fibre brushes and a specially integrated internal barrier that seamlessly wraps around cables and other equipment that is inserted through the openings in the Data Centre raised floor.
The openings are sealed meaning that no valuable cooled air can escape.
This clever but simple solution can increase the efficiency of your Data Centre cooling, and increase the effectiveness of your cooling systems and result in significant energy savings.

Air Gap Foam

An easy and flexible way to seal cable cutouts and other floor penetrations at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions.

Self-forming foam conforms to any area where it is inserted, blocking cold air from escaping into open spaces. The foam sheets are scored into a “tear-to-size” perforated 1”x1” grid so they can be easily separated along the perforations to make any size or shape needed.

Fire proof air stop pillows

A true intumescent pillow is made from a hardwearing fireproof glass cloth, filled with a fireproof sponge and intumescent. Type P/S is a soft pliable pillow that enables awkward areas to be filled, to stop the flow of air/smoke e.g. around cables, pipes and services.

Pillows are used for packing into gaps around pipes, cables, and over cable trays. They can be fitted to any size of opening, and give permanent / temporary fire protection and smoke sealing.
Suitable for computer/clean/sterile areas.
Can be used for overnight protection where work is in progress.
To ensure pillows are not lost, they can be fitted with a tag and loop and wired together for security – they can be taken out and retained for re-insertion.


This product was included in a fire resistance test employing general procedures & criteria of BS476 Part 22 (1987).
An integrity of 128 minutes was achieved (compressible type 240 minutes).
Also tested at VNE to European Standard EN1363-1 (2000).
