8 Hot Tips for Purchasing Perforated Metal

Perforated Metal vs. Wire Mesh and Expanded Metal

Perf Shapes that Move in Different Circles

Data centers are a significant aspect of the modern world since many processes occur online or through applications. Whether you're an IT company managing databases for companies or a business handling its own data onsite, your data center design and equipment is critical to your success.

With perforated metal manufactured by Hendrick, you can create the safe yet open enclosures you need for your equipment. 

The Role of Perforated Metal in Data Centers

Perforated metal has three key benefits for data racks:

  • Ventilation: When heat is uncontrolled in a data center, the equipment can overheat and shut down altogether. When these shutdowns occur, operations can experience costly downtime and may even lose mission-critical data. Ventilation is vital to data centers, and perforated metal makes it possible to maintain the necessary airflow in these metal enclosures.
  • Cost-savings: Data centers rely on air conditioning systems to manage temperature and keep all systems functional. The added ventilation from perforated metal makes the AC more efficient and cuts down on energy costs for running the data center. With all of the energy required to make these systems functional, cost-savings at any scale are beneficial. 
  • Versatility: Perforated metal panels can be cut to size for all uses within your data center. Whether you need them for cabinet doors or floor panels, the right manufacturing partner can offer that flexibility. Additionally, perforated metal is strong enough to create stable structures alongside solid sheets of metal. When you use a combination of the two, you can expect long-lasting wear.
