Cabinets/Hot & Cold Aisle Containment

Improve cooling within your modular data centre by utilising cold aisle containment and benefit from improved cooling and more stable temperature controls within your existing data centre. If your data centre build does not meet PUE requirements, installing cold aisle closures and in-row cooling might be the solution to reducing energy usage. Cold aisle containment works by creating a cold air plenum chamber within a cold aisle and preventing the mix of hot and cold airflows. They can be retro-fitted to existing data centres with no down-time and limited cost.

HotLok blanking panels provide an effective seal in unused rack space that is 29% better than that of their nearest competitor. The state-of-the-art design of the HotLok blanking panels controls airflow for optimised cooling effectiveness.

Benefits of cold aisle containment include:

  • • Reduces energy consumption and thus saves money
  • • Reduces equipment failure and downtime through stable temperatures and airflow
  • • Elimination of humidity and static problems
  • • Reduces carbon dioxide emissions
  • • Pays for itself in the short-term

Hot aisle containment (HAC) works in reverse, by using the controlled flow of 'used' warm air back to the CRAC unit. HAC collects the hot exhaust air from IT equipment within the data centre build and cools it, to make it usable for equipment intake – this is a self contained system that can cater for high density IT loads and is suitable for all large data centre solutions.

Latest Projects
Northampton NHS Trust
Northampton General Hospital wanted to become more energy efficient enabling it to increase capacity and start to future proof the data centre infrastructure for the increased demands of modern computing. The project was for a 2nd data centre rather than replace the existing  DC as it is in constant use.
Queen Elizabeth Hospital
The new data centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Kings Lynn was designed to house the authorities core network switches, servers and storage along with the local passive LAN cabling which would leave room for future expansion and capacity.
Guys & St. Thomas NHS Trust
Guy's & St Thomas' NHS Trust used available space in their underground car park for their new external modular data centre. This project, complete with full infrastructure was built to ensure maximum security due to the facility being open to the public and with flood proofing due to the close proximity to the River Thames.
