Cannon Modular Data Center - Inside

• Manufactured under strict QA ISO 2001 conditions
• Precision post/frame modules
• Sandwich panel outer walls and roof (nominal 100mm / 4” thick)
• High tensile steel with galvanized protection throughout for longevity
• Mineral wool core within all sandwich panels providing high resistance to thermal transfer and fire resistance (typical fire rating 60 minutes)
• Non combustible structural materials throughout
• Thermal break techniques minimise heat transfer throughout the structure, ensuring high thermal efficiency
• High specification powder coating for long life weathering

Foundation Options

• Mounted on smooth/level concrete pad, with waterproof membrane
• Or mounted on precision sub frame, containing additional sub-floor, providing environmental protection and protection against insects, vermin etc.
• Levelling jack pads across floor matrix of sub frame
• Optional security skirt to seal off access to under sub frame



• Fire resistant, double skin door with mineral wool core, thermal and fire gasketing. Hung on robust stainless steel hinges
• Single or multiple door options
• High security, door lock with internal panic lever for instant escape
• Entry doorways can be provided with optional heavy duty plastic strip curtains to minimise air loss through door way, when open. Doorway can be upgraded to provide an entry vestibule, with air lock feature
• Doorway vestibule with air lock feature


• No windows provided in standard build
• Optional windows can be provided for combined Data Center / work space applications, such as air traffic control centers, plant control centers or similar applications


Main Floor

• Floor can be specified with under floor void to suit client’s specification or without a void. Cable tray can be added
• Custom designed floor tiles, sized to match the frame grid, provide liftable access to under floor void
• Floor tiles comprise powder coated, cold rolled steel, suitably reinforced with under surface ribs
• Anti-static vinyl can be added to floor surfaces if required
• The large floor tile matrix facilitates exceptional access to the under floor void
• Grill type floor tiles also available


IT Equipment Racks

All equipment racks are selected from the cannon smart cab range, usually the “server smart cab” range and can be sized and configured to the specific needs of the client.
Most typical are 42U 600 x 1000 or 42U 800 x 1000.
Rack door types are dependent on the cooling system adopted.


Overhead Cable Ways

• Cable routing ways are available in the void directly above rack rows
• Cannon raceway can be specified for these above rack voids
Note: - these voids can be omitted if required


“Quick Fit” System For Internal Fit Out

A unique, quick fit rail system allows additional equipment to be mounted anywhere around the internal walls, or re-located, without the necessity to drill into any internal wall skin. This preserves environmental integrity avoiding degradation.


Environmental Entry Glands

All pipe work, power and data cabling entry is managed through high performance gland systems positioned as required by site layout.

M and E Plant and Equipment
Selected options are available for positioning items of plant, such as chillers, air con units, generators, ups etc. Within or outside of the Modular Data Centre.



Remote control of all active infrastructure, plant and machinery is available via “CannonGuard” including, power, cooling and environmental, fire, access and a/v surveillance.
This maximises efficient control and monitoring, with SNMP alarms for out of tolerance parameters with full history and audit trail, from anywhere around the globe.



Standard colour is “Chameleon: Grey White”, high performance polyester powder coating, baked to form long life surface protection. Grey White reflects a high percentage of solar gain, reducing thermal transfer and providing a neutral non invasive appearance. Other colours can be provided to meet site requirements.


Site Assembly

Comprised totally of man portable components. This enables erection of the Modular Data Centre to be achieved without the need for heavy construction plant and machinery.
This unique advantage minimises disturbance to surroundings.



The Cannon T4 ­ Modular Data Centre offers versatile floor plans to suit site constraints.It can be disassembled and moved to an alternative location, or extended at any time to allow phased growth.



Cannon has outdoor installations performing perfectly in aggressive climates after more than 25 years of operation.
