Cool Shield 23" Blanking Panels (1U - 27U)

Cool Shield 23″ Blanking Panels (1U – 27U)

Cool Shield Individual Blanking Panel s are fire-rated plastic panels which install quickly to fill unused rack spaces within server cabinets. The rigid panels are durable, non-porous, easy to store and very cost effective. The panels are available in several sizes ranging from 1U to 23U. Seal empty rack spaces in seconds with easy snap in clips. Removing the panels is nearly as easy as the clips release with a simple quarter turn.

The use of blanking panels is a best practice for any data center implementing hot and cold aisles and is a necessity for any facility which implements aisle containment. Filling the blank spaces and gaps prevents air mixing between supply and exhaust air within the cabinet. A facility which uses aisle containment can have hot aisle temperatures of 90 or even 100 degrees F. Without blanking panels this hot air will travel through open U spaces to the server intake and cause hot spots. Ignoring the comparatively simple step of blanking off empty RU spaces can actually reverse the effects of aisle containment.

The Cool Shield Blanking Panels are made of a high-impact Kydex thermoplastic material which is lightweight yet extremely durable. The virtually unbreakable material resists chipping and particulation. The matte finish will keep the color from fading over time. The material also meets the highest rating for chemical resistance and is recognized by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) for highest rating in Standard 94, V-0.

      Magnetic Air Dam Cabinet Skirts and Barriers

      Data center managers who are serious about maximizing their cooling efficiency know that sealing all gaps is critical to maximize the effectiveness of their aisle containment solution.  It is common practice to use blanking panels to fill unused rack spaces.  Magnetic air dam cabinet skirts and barriers to seal the gap under server cabinets are often overlooked. Data centers that incorporate hot and cold aisle containment have pressure differentials between the aisles. This pressure can cause the gap below server cabinets, which is often 2” or more, to become an air stream between hot and cold aisles. The resulting mix of air reduces the effectiveness of a containment solution.

      The Cool Shield Magnetic Cabinet Skirts provide an easy fix for this issue.  The lightweight strips install in seconds and are scored to allow them to easily adjust to cover gaps from 1” to 3.5”. Place them at the floor level across either the front or back of the cabinets to block air mixing below the cabinets.  Also, depending on the containment design, it can be helpful to block airflow beneath the side panels at row ends.

      Why Magnetic Air Dam Cabinet Skirts and Barriers Have a Huge ROI

      Magnetic cabinet air dam skirts block hot exhaust air from coming under the cabinet to raise the temperature in the cold aisle.  Studies have shown that blocking the gap beneath the server cabinets can impact supply temperatures at the lower rack positions by 5 degrees or more.  Eliminating air mixing allows for more precise control of cooling unit set points.  Increasing set points is the primary way to improve cooling efficiency and reduce energy costs.  A small investment in magnetic cabinet skirts can result in huge cost savings on your utility bill.
