Hot/cold aisle

Informations

Once several cabinets are connected together, it is necessary to optimize cooling of all installed equipment. Uncontrolled air flow is very expensive and inefficient. There is a concept of „cold and hot aisles“ to prevent from such situations, which leads to controling over the cold air flow and also which leads to prevention from mixing cold and hot air together. It is one of the most popular solution to cover all cabinets and separate them from outside with a sliding door system. Such solution will allow cold air input in between cabinet rows and all hot air goes away into the surrounding (hot air is cooled down with an A/C unit and returns back in cold aisle among cabinets). This solutin is called „a cold aisle“. The hot aisle solution has an opposite system of the air flow. All cold air is around data cabinets and the hot air is collected in between cabinet rows. For both „aisle“ solutions we can provide you with standard components. Atypical solutions are subject to an individual offer.

Datacenter aisle can be formed by two rows of cabinets or can be oriented one side to the wall. Wall opposite to the row of cabinets is also possible to made from panels, used as replacement of cabinets missing in the row.

Datacenter aisle sliding door

Sliding doors for data centers have a filling of clear security 4mm glass. The standard version is for the aisle 1200 mm wide . All doors listed here are self-closing with a gravity drive equipped with a SoftClose mechanism. The door is constructed with the upper running rail mounted on support panels (30 mm thick – are part of the delivery) which are mounted in front of the cabinet. Therefore, the door can also be installed to cabinets on pedestals (with the optional set RAx-CD-AD2-P2), in front of an aisle of non-standard width and the like. Depending on the model the door can be fitted with a lock. There are also doors with plastic filling (Makrolon).

Self-closing door with gravity drive between two rows of cabinets, aisle 1200mm

Sliding doors are designed for installation on cabinet 1000 mm or deeper. When installed on a cabinet less than 1000 mm deep, the sliding door rail support panel will overlap the cabinet.

Self-closing door with gravity drive one side to the wall, aisle 1200mm

Sliding doors are designed for installation on cabinet 1000 mm or deeper. When installed on a cabinet less than 1000 mm deep, the sliding door rail support panel will overlap the cabinet.

Data center aisle roofing

The roof of the aisle is made of clear 4 mm transparent safety glass in metal frame. The shape of the ceiling helps the flow of cooling air. The roof‘s side panels are also glazed. On demand is possible to use Makrolon instead of glass. Standard roof for aisle 1200mm is offered in width from 300 to 800 mm. Space needed above the the ceiling of the cabinet is 150mm to install any roof. Fixed roof is 100mm high, sliding roofs need a bit more space. In addition to fix glass roofs, you will also find in our offer solid sheet metal roofs, alternative with preparation for installation of LED panels, sliding glazed roofs (divided in half or shifting over the adjacent fixed roof) and self-opening roofs that in the event of a fire reveal access to the extinguishing gas to aisle area. For roofs to the wall is necessary to purchase a wall bracket corresponding widths according to the width of the roof.

Back panel of datacenter aisle

The aisle of the data center can be closed instead of a sliding door with a fixed panel, solid metal or with glass. This solution is used especially in data centres where user have access only from one end of the aisle. Also as in the case of sliding doors, the rear panel can be used with cabinets on the bases with the corresponding conversion sets (it is necessary to select the conversion set according to the width of the aisle). The rear panel for solution installed one side to the wall is universal (right / left). When using panel against the wall made from blanking panels (the dummy wall made from metal panels) it is necessary to purchase an end post of the appropriate height (accessory).
