Cold and Hot Aisle containment solutions for Data Centres

Cold Aisle Containment Solutions

Cold aisle containment keeps the cold supply air enclosed within the aisle so that it is only exposed to the IT equipment and cannot leak out over the aisle ends or tops. Cold aisle containment involves the provision of ContainAire Partitions and a hard roof to contain the supply air flow and reduce by-pass airflow. Typically the roof is no higher than the rack, which avoids potential obstructions such as cable trays. Cold aisle containment provides for a regular and consistent air temperature at the IT intake.

ContainAire partitions can be placed around the top of the racks providing there are solid ceiling tiles over the aisle.

Constant airflow with varying loads can waste energy by forcing air through the servers even when they are idle. The SmartAire P works to eliminate leakage by modulating the airflow in the cold aisle. See below for further details about SmartAire P.

The following cold aisle options are available:

  •   ContainAire hard roof with single or dual sliding doors
  • ContainAire single or dual sliding doors with directional airflow panels
  • ContainAire soft partitions with single or dual sliding doors
  • ContainAire hard partitions with single or dual sliding doors
  • ContainAire soft partitions with strip doors

Hot Aisle Containment Solutions

Hot aisle containment isolates the hot exhaust air on its return to the cooling units. Physical barriers are installed to guide the hot exhaust airflow, ensuring it does not mix with the cold airflow in the rest of the room. Warm air naturally rises, so hot aisle containment systems utilise ContainAire partitions around the top of the racks to direct warm airflow to ceiling return grilles.

Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations limit the length of time a technician can work in elevated temperatures. The SmartAire T enables on-demand airflow to be directed into the hot aisle to bring down temperatures so that essential work can be performed for as long as necessary. See below for further details about SmartAire P.

The following hot aisle options are available:

  • ContainAire hard partitions with single or dual sliding doors
  • ContainAire soft partitions with single or dual sliding doors
  • ContainAire soft partitions with strip doors
