Creating the 'Technical Space' Through Planning, Design and a Range of Data Centre Construction Services
'ModuSec' is the UK's leading data centre and server room modular construction product. The ModuSec system provides a clean and fast alternative to traditional construction techniques to deliver optimum protection for data and server equipment from heat, water, smoke and rodents.
ModuSec benefits at a glance:
- Lightweight High Strength Material
- Fast Construction Time
- 90 Minute Fire Rated
- Internal Temperatures will remain under 45oC for over 60 minutes
- High Security Options
- Internal or External Construction
Why Use ModuSec?
ModuSec uses lightweight, high strength, steel faced wall and ceiling panels with a 'pyrofoam' core that provides a high performance thermal barrier. Panels simply lock together to form a protective enclosure that is quick and clean to build to any size. The pre-finished panels require no decoration or maintenance. The system is independent of the existing structure and can be easily extended or relocated at any time.
Rapid Assembly - System construction requires no wet trades such as plastering and painting and therefore causes minimal disruption to the surrounding environment. Ceiling/wall joints have pre-formed 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.
Fire Protection - Designed for I.T hardware and media. Whilst traditional fire rated materals 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. ModuSec has a 'traditional' 90-minute rating, but more importantly, during a BS476 Pt 22 test with external temperatures rising to 950oC over 90 minutes, the internal temperature, measured on the protected face, stayed within the critical temperature for media for 75 minutes and hardware storage (50oC rise from around 15oC) for 83 minutes.
Energy Efficiency - ModuSec eliminated solar gain - saving power/energy and providing a stable environment for cooling systems.
Strength of ModuSec Panels - ModuSec panels are very light (around 20 kg/m2 for the standard panels), but incredibly strong. The system is also approved for use with pressures of a constant +/- 350 Pa with a peak of 500 Pa.
High Security Options - We can also provide enhanced security options:
Class 2 Panel Option: Forced attack protection for secure computer rooms or other high security environments. Two layers of 3mm thick cross laid steel 'diamond' mesh foamed into panels and all joint further reinforced.
Class 3 Panel Option: As Class 2 but with additional 20mm layer of anti-cutting material in a steel sleeve with joints staggered from the main panels - to further frustrate the use of steel cutting tools and strengthen the joints. Class 3 panels (walls and ceilings) are 120mm thick.
