Cool Shield Air Strip - Foam Gap Seal

Cool Shield Air Strip – Foam Gap Seal

The Cool Shield AirStrip is an expanding foam tape designed to prevent unwanted air loss from gaps in contained aisles, server rack rows and data center infrastructure. Strips can be used above or below containment panels, next to rack rails, under server cabinets or in gaps in raised flooring. Filling gaps significantly improves cooling efficiency by preventing bypass airflow and hot air recirculation.

Expanding foam can be used for gaps ranging from ¼” to 1 ½”. When installed, the compressed strips gradually expand until gaps are filled or reach maximum thickness. Strips feature an adhesive on one side making installation to nearly any surface quick and easy. Simply peel off the protective paper and adhere the strips directly to one edge and wait for the foam to expand to fill the gap. Foam material is durable, fire retardant and non-particulating which makes it ideal for data center use.

      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.
