Installing a One-Hour Fire-Rated Modular Server Enclosure in Oxford

Stancold’s work designing, supplying and installing fire-rated partitioning continues into the Spring as the team prepare for an upcoming project in Oxford.

Working with an experienced data centre specialist to complete these works, the Stancold team will be installing a compact modular server enclosure within the university site to house their internal server system. Keeping these systems uncompromised in the event of a fire is second to none, as the equipment contained is so valuable to keeping the business operational. Therefore, providing a fire-rated enclosure will delay the spread of flame within this area.

To date, Stancold’s projects team have been to site to meet with our client and the end user, finalising the installation plans and developing the design for the work commencing in mid-May. As the building work will be completed within a live environment, coordinating our activities effectively has been key to ensure that minimal disruption is caused.

This one-hour fire-rated facility will be constructed using Isoclad composite panels, of 100mm thickness to achieve the desired one-hour fire prevention rating. This is accompanied by a fire-rated hinged personnel door and specialist lock, that can then be integrated into the client’s existing security system.

We’ll be sharing progress of the week-long installation once it is underway.
