As reliance on high-tech surges, day-to-day activities are increasingly dependent on data centers as they handle mission-critical data and processes for business, government and organizations.
In designing data centers, it’s important to preserve and secure technology infrastructure while addressing future scalability. Cost containment protection of the massive amount of wire and cable from elbow burn-through during installation and faults after installation is essential to preserve investment, so electrical conduit deserves careful consideration.
Securing data center components begins from the ground-up in facility design. Best practices dictate durable, cost-efficient fiberglass electrical conduit, especially elbows for data center stub-ups. Fiberglass conduit elbows must support a large amount of heavy cable while minimizing burn through in this dense environment.
Of all conduit products available, fiberglass conduit elbows offer strategic advantages in data center builds because of lack of burn-through when pulling cable, low coefficient of friction, and fault resistance to properly protect data center assets. And fiberglass conduit’s ease of installation adds to its appeal.
