Big demand at data centres

Big demand at data centres

Due to the growth of digital technology in all areas of business, Kingspan Access Floors is continuing to experience high levels of demand for access flooring in data centres.

As a leading supplier of raised floors to this market sector, the firm has been consistently supplying volumes of approximately 100,000m2 each year, and expects data centre growth to continue for a number of reasons:

  • Following the 9/11 attack and the regulatory influences that followed, the financial institutions in particular are replicating their on-site data storage in new off-site centres.
  • Other companies are going to independent off-site providers because they are finding that the cost of using their own prime office space for substantial data storage is too high, and there are major power and cooling implications (many buildings are simply not designed to carry a 10MVA load).
  • The growth of emails, electronic financial transfers, the internet and in particular online retailing, is driving an ever-increasing need for more data centre space.


Kingspan have been supplying this sector, for many years and have met needs ranging from 2,500m2 of flooring through to 40,000m2 and beyond.

The firm has wide experience of working with customers to meet their needs, covering everything from load-bearing through to cooling and static dissipation requirements.

All the company’s products and services are backed up by a unique Total System Warranty, which guarantees the performance of our systems for 25 years.
