Superior Essex is leading the way in providing Health Product Declarations (HPDs) for their fiber optic cables. A HPD is a report of the materials or ingredients contained in a building product, along with any associated health or environmental affects. These disclosures provide information to consumers that allow them to make more informed decisions regarding building products and materials. Superior Essex is the first company in their industry to offer 17 (up from their previous eight) HPDs for their 25 fiber optic cable families, including multiple designs of their Premises plenum and riser rated cables, with fiber counts that range from 2-strand fiber to 144-stand fiber.
Superior Essex has chosen to issue their HPDs in accordance with the Health Product Declaration Collaborative open standard, which allows their fiber cable to obtain points needed for the LEED certification process. The LEED program, administered by the U.S. Green Building Council, is a leading standard for rating and certifying the environmental impact of building projects, including new construction, and existing structures.

For corporations, governments, and other organizations that rely on large data center complexes, keeping equipment cool has fast become one of today's data center managers top priorities. Some estimations put cooling at roughly 30% of the entire data centers operating costs, and as far as pure electrical usage, many cooling systems now use 35-45%+ of a data centers energy usage! These are some extraordinary statistics which really highlight why it is important, not only to have a data center cooling plan in the first place, but also to have one which utilizes aisle containment systems.
