The Benefits of Airflow Management
Here at FabraCraft, airflow containment is our business. We take pride in creating effective airflow containment options to create hot aisle and cold aisle enclosures for data centers, technology centers, and any other business application in need of air containment solutions. Our expertly designed and crafted systems are designed to form an airtight, custom-made server aisle enclosure to contain air flow patterns and provide temperature control in a data center.
Benefits of FabraCraft Containment Panels for Data Centers
Why manage data center airflow? There are a host of benefits associated with hot aisle containment and cold aisle containment. Aside from the more obvious benefits like increased equipment performance and lifespan, containment panels also offer the following:
- Flexible design for any layout configuration
- Compliant with fire and safety regulations
- Enhanced server performance
- Protects servers from dust and other airborne debris
- Control temperature zones
- Decreased energy costs
- Enhanced comfort for employees
- Ease of installation, adaptable and portable
- Affordable options
- Expandable for growth and reconfigurations
At FabraCraft, we help to evaluate your data center requirements and layout options to achieve the best air flow containment solution. Most often, a custom room configuration is used to manage the most effective air control pattern. To achieve the best server room airflow plan, our design team will help you to evaluate your options every step of the way.
FabraCraft’s most important asset is our in-house engineering and design assistance services. We have teams who can design an airflow containment system for you, or our kit solutions provide the materials needed with installation instructions to build a data center enclosure yourself. Whether you are designing a custom data enclosure, expanding or replacing parts, the containment options you choose are fabricated by FabraCraft for a custom fit to your data center space.
Cold Aisle Containment Vs. Hot Aisle Containment
FabraCraft airflow containment systems use cold aisle air containment panels to create a barrier that allows the internal cooled air supply to collect inside a data center aisle, and stay contained inside the aisle at the front of one or more server cabinets. This barrier is implemented from the top down to the floor to effectively contain the cold air delivered from air conditioning units through ceiling and floor input ducts.
In the case of hot aisle containment, FabraCraft fabricates custom airflow containment systems that allow warm air to rise from inside the enclosure. This containment solution allows hot air to be directed upward and out of the enclosure, where the hot air flows to air conditioning units outside of the data center enclosure.
If you are increasing your server rack population, reconfiguring a rack or server cabinet layout, or just not happy with the set points of your current arrangement, contact us today. We will listen to your concerns and provide options that will lead to an optimal and economical air containment solution for your facility.
