specialises in the supply of critical infrastructure solutions for the data
centre and enterprise IT environments. Building on over 25 years’ experience,

designed to optimise the overall performance of its customers’ IT environments
no matter their size. From design & build to ongoing operational management, EDP
Europe can support throughout the lifecycle of a data centre to increase
efficiency, resiliency, flexibility and security.
We provide solutions for our customers in the following areas including:
Cold Aisle Containment System
Installing a Cold Aisle Containment System is one of the best ways to help enable cooling efficiency, and should be implemented in conjunction with the other air flow management best practices of sealing cable cut-outs, blanking unused rack space and ensuring air flow grilles are located in the correct positions. There are two main types of aisle containment systems Cold Aisle Containment where the cold aisle is enclosed or Hot Aisle Containment where the hot aisle is enclosed and the hot air directed into the return plenum and back to the air handlers.
Within these two categories EDP Europe offers a number of options to best suit individual requirements, these include a fully retro-fitting, customised solution that can include electronic drop down roof panels, electronic sliding doors and custom built in-fill panels. EDP Europe also offers a PVC thermal curtain containment solution and the AisleLok® Modular Containment system that provides an out-of-the-box aisle containment solution.
Rack Access Control - Rack Access Security Systems
With tightening regulatory and compliance requirements affecting information security, the need for better physical security and controlled access to IT racks to protect the assets housed within has never been greater. RackANGEL, from EDP Europe, combines three technologies to provide secure protection, visibility and controlled access to 19” cabinets:
1. Cost effective, retro-fitting intelligent locking and access control system that provides real-time reporting on the status of individual cabinet doors, issuing alerts when unauthorised events occur. The system can be configured so that individuals can only access specific doors, with the door handles providing a visual indication as to which can be accessed. It’s also possible to trigger the opening of individual doors remotely, enabling secure and controlled access for visiting engineers.
2. Biometric access cards compatible with popular systems that provide dual level authentication without the expense of replacing existing card reader infrastructure. This solution also eliminates the need to store and manage biometric data.
3. In-rack CCTV surveillance cameras that enhance the security system by providing real-time or historical footage of both authorised and unauthorised events.
Air Flow Management
To efficiently cool data centres and computer rooms the set points on cooling systems need to rise. One of the best ways to improve cooling efficiency is to make sure air flow management best practices are being followed. Theses best practices include ensuring that floor grilles are correctly positioned in cold aisles only, unused rack space and other gaps in racks are blanked off and cable cut-outs within the raised floor are sealed.
EDP Europe is a leading distributor of air flow management solutions that help our clients improve their cooling efficiency. These solutions including blanking panels from EziBlank®, HotLok® and PlenaFill®; raised floor grommets from KoldLok® and floor grilles from Triad that improve the delivery of the cold air from the raised floor. EDP Europe also supplies other products that improve air flow management including bespoke aisle containment systems and Geist SwitchAir to improve the cooling performance of network switches.
