Data Center Containment Accessories

Containment accessories help optimize the functionality of the implemented hot and cold aisle containment


OPTIMIZE FUNCTIONALITY

Fine-tune your airflow management and increase data center efficiency

Research continually shows that within a data center facility the mixing of hot and cold air should be separated through hot or cold aisle containment to make the operation of the data center more energy efficient.

Containment also allows the equipment to operate at ASHRAE TC 9.9 guidelines, which improves the critical equipment functionality, and uptime and increases energy efficiency.

Subzero Engineering’s containment accessories help optimize the functionality of the implemented hot and cold aisle containment. We provide customized solutions for data center facility airflow management needs. Our accessories accommodate hot aisle containment as well as cold aisle containment to create a total aisle containment solution.

SEEING IS BELIEVING

How Accessories Increase Data Center Containment Functionality

The diagram shows how Subzero’s airflow management solutions can be used effectively in directing hot and cold airflow within a data center. See details of specific products utilized in the sample configuration below.

Data Center Containment Accessory

Egg Crate Ceiling Grill

Our Egg Crate Ceiling Grill airflow management solution is an important tool in helping design an energy-efficient data center. It is designed to work with the natural properties of rising hot air.

The Subzero Engineering Egg Crate Ceiling Grille is used most effectively with hot aisle containment to allow hot IT equipment exhaust air to pass into the drop-ceiling void and be directed back to the AC unit. This allows for warmer, dryer air to return to the AC unit. As a result, the AC unit functions more efficiently and can provide increased cooling.

Velocity Adjustor

The Subzero Engineering Velocity Adjustor is the most efficient way to balance subfloor air pressure in data centers.

The Velocity Adjustor is designed to lower velocity at the AC discharge to eliminate sub-floor vortices that are formed when two high-velocity currents of air converge. Slowing the air increases pressure, and this in turn creates a consistent supply of air to any part of the data center. The supply airflow through the sub-floor plenum is the foundation of any cooling program. Inconsistent supply, due to high-velocity airflow from CRAC, units prevent cooling air from getting to the computer intake, especially at the top of the rack. A balanced supply volume is essential in order to match the kW load in each cabinet.

Data Center Containment Accessory

Cube

The Subzero Engineering Cube cable cutout cover is the most effective way to fill in openings in your raised floor. The Cube comes in a variety of sizes that will cover any opening required. It can be ordered in custom sizes or several standard sizes. The Cube is made of fireproof material and installation is easy. Simply compress or squeeze The Cube, place it into the opening, and release! The Cube will instantly fill in all around the raised floor opening (top, bottom, and side). The Cube is specifically engineered with a 5-1/2″ depth so that it fully separates subfloor and ambient air. The Cube is the most effective way to cover these openings and to not lose cold air. Larger cubes can also be used to create a subfloor wall or baffle. The Cube is an easy and efficient way to manage airflow during data center expansions.

Blanking Panels

Blanking panels are an integral part of any data center airflow management solution.

When empty spaces in racks are left uncovered this allows by-pass airflow to create inner rack recirculation. This causes inconsistent temperature along the rack face and makes it difficult to manage a consistent temperature along the cold aisle. By using blanking panels to fill up those empty spaces we eliminate these issues. The Subzero blanking panels prevent the transfer of hot or cold airflow by occupying unused rack space at each U.

Our blanking panels are made from UL specifications that meet or exceed data center standards.
