Cable Installation in Healthcare Facilities

It’s one thing to design a new building to incorporate the latest wireless networking technologies, but it’s quite another to retrofit a building constructed before the Information Age. Cosmetic upgrades aside, renovating a commercial structure built decades ago to enable the networking and power distribution technologies of today can be a labor intensive and expensive process. Most are of brick or cinder block construction designed without accessible interstitial spaces or raised access floors.

Edge Computing requires effective cable management

Getting to The Edge Requires Effective Cable Management

What is Edge Computing?

Edge computing is one of the hottest trends in information management. It is a distributed computing model that uses a network of micro data centers, each with limited data storage and processing capabilities, to act as mid-points between users and the central cloud. So instead of communicating with a server farm located 3,000 miles away, the network can spin up a copy of a requested movie, file or application and move it to a server located only 100 miles away to vastly improve performance. Because even when moving data at the speed of light, distance creates latency.

Raising the Bar: Snake Tray Helps Your Next Building Meet ASHRAE Standard 90.1

What is ASHRAE Standard 90.1?

In 1975 the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE) first published a set of standards that provided minimum requirements for the energy-efficient design of most buildings, excluding low-rise residential buildings. Initially focused on the HVAC elements of construction, it has evolved to include the majority of mechanical (escalators, elevators, pumps, etc.) and electrical/lighting systems of a structure, intelligent building management systems (BMS), and even the building envelope itself to maximize energy conservation.

Snake Tray has, and here’s what we found: Snake Nut™ can reduce the cycle time and cost of cable tray fastener installation by a factor of up to 30:1.
