Aisle Containment Solutions

We offer both prefabricated containment systems that are easy to install and modify, as well as customized containment solutions for both new construction and retrofit projects.

Key Benefits:

  • Increase cooling efficiency by eliminating bypass airflow
  • Reduce utility operating costs by balancing cooling and loads
  • Increase cooling capacity by reclaiming stranded capacity
  • Improve equipment reliability by eliminating hot spots

Cost Effective and Flexible Aisle Containment

We offer a complete suite of aisle containment products to best fit your needs. We can design a system to meet your data center cooling and energy efficiency goals. We represent leading industry manufacturers and will work directly with your staff to develop the best solution.

Cold Aisle Containment confines the cold supply air within the aisle so that it is only available to the equipment and cannot escape out the aisle ends or over the top of the aisle. The most common model of this containment approach is aisle end doors and roof panels on a raised floor with perimeter CRACs.

Hot Aisle Containment focuses on isolating hot exhaust air on its return to the CRAC units or on its way out of the building. And this method of containment is clearly the trend for most new enterprise data center builds.

Our prefabricated, flat-pack containment system is a smarter way to build because it installs in half the time of traditional stick-built systems and costs about a third less. Because containment is typically the final phase of data center construction, faster containment installation can mean finishing on time.

/

Modular white space infrastructure integrates containment, cable and power management, and lighting to speed and simplify deployment. Our partnership with Polargy is bringing “modular” to the white space.

Finish your data center containment new construction on time and on budget. Containment is the last thing to go in, so when schedules are under pressure, it is the containment piece that needs to go in quickly and smoothly. Our informed, flexible designs, easy-to-install products, and experienced team of installers help assure schedules are met.

Data center containment retrofits save energy, eliminate hot spots and capture stranded capacity. Meeting customer ROI goals and safely transitioning to new cooling environments are high priorities.

Cold & Hot Aisle Containment

Containing the cold aisle has been the most common approach for energy efficiency retrofits and many colocation and wholesale providers. Cold Aisle Containment confines the cold supply air within the aisle so that it is only available to the equipment and cannot escape out the aisle ends or over the top of the aisle. Containing the hot aisle is clearly the trend in new data center construction for the enterprise segment. Hot Aisle Containment focuses on isolating hot exhaust air on its return to the CRAC units or on its way out of the building.

Hot Aisle Containment
N

Improves Cooling Capacity

Directional airflow panels cool the same load as vertical plume panels with half the airflow.

N

Cost-effective and Energy-efficient

Can save up to 40% in annual fan energy savings without the use of containment.

N

Reduces Bypass Airflow

Reduces bypass airflow by directing airflow toward the server rack.

Prefabricated Aisle Containment Systems

Flat-pack, prefabricated cold & hot aisle containment systems keep costs down and dramatically reduce installation time. Our prefabricated, flat-pack containment system is a smarter way to build because it installs in half the time of traditional stick-built systems and costs about a third less. Because containment is typically the final phase of data center construction, faster containment installation can mean finishing on time. Building containment in our factory instead of on your site reduces cost and improves quality.

Airflow Controls
N

Effectively Cool Variable Loads

Adjusts airflow cooling during peak demand, and reduces airflow during low demand for greater efficiency.

N

Improve Cooling Effectiveness

Measures inlet air temperature at the rack level and adjust dampers to meet variable demands.

N

Reduces Bypass Airflow

Dampering systems help reduce bypass airflow thereby improving efficiency and reducing costs.

Modular Infrastructure Containment Systems

Modular white space infrastructure integrates containment, cable and power management, and lighting to speed and simplify deployment. Polargy calls this modular system our Floor Mounted Infrastructure (FMI™) solution. In particular, we are bringing together the key components of Containment, Cable pathways, Power bus-ways or pathways and, Lighting into a single modular chassis. The FMI™ allows owners to bring in capacity in phases, some at initial construction and some after commissioning depending on growth. This modular approach provides a rack and ceiling independent solution that saves on product costs and gives flexibility in adding capacity.

Containment for New Build & Retrofits

Finish your data center containment new construction on time and on budget. Containment is the last thing to go in, so when schedules are under pressure, it is the containment piece that needs to go in quickly and smoothly. Our informed, flexible designs, easy-to-install products, and experienced team of installers help assure schedules are met. We bring experience and competency to the design that saves time and prevents rework. Our products are modular and adjustable so that field adjustments can be made with minimal delays. And, our team of experienced containment installers knows how to get our products installed quickly and correctly.
