One of the main components of any data centre PUE and sever performance strategy today is effective rack air flow containment. It is increasingly imperative with the escalating density of server architecture that recirculation of exhaust air flows are eliminated. CRS offers a broad range of aisle containment solutions to address this issue.
At the core of the CRS solution is a purpose design and engineered aluminium extrusion panel framing system that simplifies installation and improves access to above rack services. This concept features a dual track panelling system that enables both above rack containment panels and full height rack blanking panels to slide horizontally. Panels are alternated between opposite channels along the containment aisle so that they can slide independently of the adjacent panel.
For upper containment panelling, this permits ready access to above rack services from within the aisle by sliding an individual panel sideways where required. Similarly, full rack blanking panels can be fitted to alternate tracks so that the last panel in a blanking row can abut the first rack without the need to cut or form a custom width panel to preserve the containment envelope.
Ceiling-suspended hot or cold aisle containment solution utilising an independent containment solution affixed to the data centre ceiling, making it autonomous and free hanging.
Can be used in conjunction with Containment through the use of full height rack blanking panels, prior to Racks/Cabinets being placed in position.
The free-standing HAC is made from a more robust 100mm x 100mm or 150mm x 100mm framework.
Additional cross-bracing can be implemented to satisfy the structural integrity required by certain locations.
Blanking panels can be easily implemented to maintain the containment plane during the absence of a rack.
Louvre panels operate during a fire alarm event through the use of electromagnets, allowing fire supression services to extinguish any flames within the containment. The panels are installed on the side of the containment for any aisles that continue to a ceiling plane.
Drop Away Roof Panels are formed from an engineered plastic designed to contract so that they fall out of their frames when the temperature reaches 60° degrees. This permits fire suppression media to freely access the full internal area of the aisle in the event of a fire.
Riser panels are available to provision for different height cabinets and to increase work space in the aisle. Custom and standard sizes are available for purchase to fit any aisle configuration.
Pivot panels are designed to be operated by a fire control system. In normal service, electromagnets hold the panels in position. When a fire alarm event occurs, power to the electromagnets is removed, permitting the panels to swing open. This permits fire suppression media to freely access the full internal area of the aisle in the event of a fire.
