Unistrut at Basingstoke Data Centre- Currently the largest Data centre in the UK!
Unistrut were involved with the supply of Cable Management Products for a £60 million Basingstoke Data centre. The extensive range supplied consisted of Cable Tray, Cable Ladder, full support solutions and bracketry.
The 1,200m2 site contains over 50 miles of cabling that required support over two split floors. Also there was a requirement for extensive roof cabling to all refrigeration units utilising bespoke Cable Ladder. Unistrut Cable Management and Support Solutions products were supplied and installed to a tight 51 week fast track schedule.
Pre-fabricated bracketry such as adapted cantilever arms, were produced off site to enable the contractor to install at a lean rate, therefore increasing savings on labour costs.
Unistrut bespoke sizes of Cable Ladder and Cable Tray were used on site to accommodate the numerous large cables deployed throughout the building. This is a typical requirement of data centres, due to the back up power required to make the site self sufficient. The intense programme of deliveries required direct shipping from Unistrut manufacturing and smaller more frequent Distributor deliveries.
