Subzero Engineering and Armstrong World Industries Partner to Serve US Data Center Market
SAN ANTONIO, June 15, 2021 -- Subzero Engineering, a leading provider of data center containment solutions, and Armstrong World Industries (AWI), a leader in the design and manufacture of innovative commercial and residential ceiling, wall, and suspension solutions, have announced a strategic relationship for the Americas markets. Subzero Engineering and AWI have come together to create a combined containment and structural ceiling solution for data centers that is high-strength, flexible, and quick-to-install. Further, this secure, turnkey solution offers cost savings, reduced time-to-market and eliminates construction inefficiencies.
The Armstrong DynaMax ceiling solution is an aluminum suspension system that serves as a structural and conveyance component in data centers. It provides a suspension plenum or attachment platform for cable trays, equipment, partitions, and hot and cold aisle containment barriers, while eliminating penetrations in the ceiling system. Available in 2' x 2', 2' x 4', and 4' x 4' suspension system layouts with coordinated ceiling options, the DynaMax suspension system can support up to a 900 lb. point load rating using 3/8" threaded rods at 4' x 4' connection points. Subzero Engineering will seamlessly combine the DynaMax structural system with its Essential Series and Essential Plus+ product lines, offering hyperscale, colocation, and enterprise data center operators a standardized, vendor-neutral and flexible containment solution with a fully accessible ceiling system. The new collaboration enables Subzero to incorporate the Armstrong DynaMax system into their US data center market offerings and allows Subzero to provide any combination of non-structural and structural ceiling components for data centers, including an ultra-secure containment barrier to protect servers from debris.
“A company with Armstrong’s status in the commercial construction industry is the perfect organization for Subzero to partner with, enabling us to meet customer demands for turnkey solutions that combine customer needs with cost efficiency,” said Sam Prudhomme, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Mission Critical Environments Division, Subzero Engineering. “This strategic relationship will enable Subzero Engineering to quickly deliver a robust, structural conveyance system that includes high-quality containment, ensuring a customer-first approach to data center design and optimization.”
Rapidly expanding solution portfolio
Incorporating the Armstrong DynaMax structural ceiling system into the latest offerings from Subzero Engineering, including the recently introduced Essential Series, creates a comprehensive portfolio of data center infrastructure solutions, engineering consultancy, and modernization services, delivering industry-leading technology designed to address major customer challenges.
