Choosing the best data center flooring option
Technology is key to our everyday lives, and to keep businesses moving, electronic manufacturing facilities, data centers, and technology companies need high-performance floors in their server rooms. A failed floor could mean outages or downtime for the tech facility, which would negatively affect the crucial data of thousands of customers.
Ensuring the continuous operation of a data center means careful consideration must be given to the design or modernization of your facility—and that includes the floor.
Finding the best data center flooring option can seem like a big challenge; there are a myriad of choices available—so which will provide maximum durability and longevity?
Read on to discover how an epoxy resin floor can provide the functionality you need to keep your server center running efficiently.
Keep your server racks cool
A flooring system that can withstand the heat buildup from high-density rack servers can make all the difference to the smooth operation of a mission-critical data center.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring is ideal for any environment that regularly experiences high temperatures because our system will not crack, chip, or erode, even when installed in a facility where heavy racks of servers generate high temperatures.
Durable to withstand critical equipment
Servers are heavy—and expensive—pieces of technology that need to be well-supported by a well-constructed data center floor.
Our epoxy resin surface is designed to cope with the heaviest of machinery and can withstand the movement and repositioning of server racks without causing any degradation, cracks, or chips.
If a server rack has been in position for months or years, the heavy load still will not affect the functionality of the hard-wearing flooring surface underneath.
Prevents dust buildup
Dust is a great data center enemy and can severely impact server reliability by preventing effective cooling of the equipment or damaging sensitive optical fibers.
Damage caused by dust can also put the reputation of your facility at risk—if your hardware experiences frequent outages, your customers could demand costly compensation.
Choosing a flooring solution that is easy to clean and maintain is one of the simplest things you can do to ensure dust doesn’t become an issue. Everlast® Epoxy flooring has no joints or seams where dust can gather (unlike tiles that harbor difficult-to-remove dust particles between the grout lines) and thus provides effective dust control.
Fast-curing for minimal downtime
If your current flooring has failed and you need a new system that can be installed quickly and professionally, Everlast® Epoxy resin floors are the ideal alternative to hard-to-maintain concrete surfaces or dusty tiles.
Closing your facility to replace a failed floor is costly to your business, and any downtime must be kept to a minimum to ensure the continuity of service that your customers demand.
Everlast® Overnight Floor offers a unique formula that blends high-quality resins and aggregates for a faster cursing system. The one-step application can be applied and ready for foot traffic just six hours later.
One word of warning: there are products on the market that claim to cure in just two hours, but we recommend you avoid these. Two hours does not allow enough time for the resin to soak into the substrate and form a true bond. In many instances, the flooring will be prone to peeling just a few short months after installation.
