Installation of the modular data centre (MDC) which comprises of 100mm Rockwool insulated composite walling
This construction method for data centres is favoured over more traditional builds due to its 1 hour fire integrity and security rating, sound reduction of up to 30db and fast dust free installation with no requirement for any wet trades such as painters & plasterers. The walls are bonded together with fire sealant and fixed to both the ceiling and floor slab with a mixture of rivets and traditional heavy duty screws and plugs.
The double glazing from the windows is removed and replaced with heavy duty steel security panels.
