The solution

Legrand provided critical support in selecting and equipping the racks. They offered guidance during the pre-sale phase and during installation with integration plans and ensured that tailor-made racks were designed to accommodate David Sarfati, Systems Service Owner, Technology Department the building’s unique constraints, including low ceilings, false floors, and cold aisles for efficient air conditioning. The careful separation and isolation of fluids, high-voltage and hydraulic lines under the floor, and low-voltage lines in the ceiling enabled the installation of a reliable double-induction cooling system.

“We chose white Minkels racks so that they would be bright, to optimize the lighting, and for their warmth. The 42U racks satisfy our height constraints, and they provide two cable trays: one for copper cables, because we still have some, as well as network and video cables and the other for single-mode fiber. Legrand also helped integrate the In Row racks and the sealing adjustments for the cold aisle air conditioning.”
