Modular Wall System
Modular composite construction products offer a clean and fast alternative to traditional techniques to create shell schemes. These solutions are ideal for data centres, storage and clean room environments.
Modular Wall System benefits at a glance:
- Lightweight High Strength Material
- Fast Construction Time
- Pre-finished surfaces
- Fire Rating to suit application
- High Security Options
- Internal or External Construction
Modular wall system construction requires no wet trades such as plastering and painting, thus causing minimal disruption to the surrounding environment. Ceiling/wall joints have preformed profiles that are simply dropped into place and fixed by steel angles. All joints are sealed with intumescent mastic (that swells under heat) between the panels and silicon mastic to seal against water.
Typically a small room can be constructed in a single day.
High Performance Data Centre Solutions
Workspace Technology is an approved integrator for ModuSec secure modular walling system designed of critical environments.
Traditional fire rated materials such as block, brick, plasterboard or mineral wool panels are rated under BS476/EN1364 to protect escape routes or building integrity to temperatures below 180°C for the rating period. However, whilst they may be rated for 60, 90 or even 120 minutes, critical temperatures for hardware and media will be very quickly exceeded — well within the rating period.
The European standard for computer room construction (EN1047-2) recommends a maximum rise of 50°C measured 100mm away from the protected face at 60 minutes.
ModuSec has a ‘traditional’ 90 minute rating, but more importantly, during a BS476 Pt 22 test with external temperatures rising to 950°C over 90 minutes, the internal temperature, (measured on the protected face) stayed within the critical temperature for media for 75 minutes, and hardware storage (50°C rise from around 15°C) for 83 minutes.
ModuSec eliminates solar gain — saving energy and providing a stable environment for cooling systems. With the onslaught of Global Warming, regular 40°C summers are predicted. ModuSec eliminates the need to oversize AC systems to compensate for solar gain and therefore contributes to energy savings to help reduce the carbon footprint of your facility.
