Most data centers have isolated cabinets that are not part of a hot or cold aisle design. The Subzero Engineering Polar Booth fully completes the separation of supply and return airflow by addressing isolated equipment. This portable booth can be used for cold or hot aisle applications to ensure complete separation of exhaust and supply air on stand alone IT equipment.
A common problem many data center managers encounter is supplying cold air to equipment that is not in a rack row or aisle. Perforated tiles located in front of isolated equipment only cool the bottom half of the cabinet. The remainder of the cabinet is cooled by the ambient airflow. As a result, the supply air temperature is set considerably colder than necessary to cool the ambient air. The Polar Booth contains the supply air to the equipment intake and ensures both a uniform and predictable temperature to all isolated IT equipment.
The Polar Booth can be used to contain either cold supply air, or direct hot exhaust air away, making it a perfect solution for equipment that is not in a dedicated hot or cold aisle configuration.
