Hot and Cold Aisle Data Center Curtains for Airflow Containment
FabraCraft data center curtains are an economical way to separate air flow patterns in a data center enclosure. Data center curtains are used to contain and control hot aisle / cold aisle air temperatures necessary to protect valuable servers from overheating. Used as an air flow management system, aisle containment curtains create a customizable enclosure to fit any size space or room configuration. A data center curtain offers flexibility in how they can be installed. Most data center enclosures are a stationary room created by mounting brackets to a drop ceiling or structural members. A custom data center curtain is a great way to design your layout specific to your room configuration. Data center curtains offer easy access for maintenance staff and are easy to expand as your enclosure grows. For a standard size data center enclosure, you could install our preassembled bracket and curtain wall solution. It is a perfect way to install it yourself, and it’s fast and easy to do.
Install Data Center Enclosures for Server Aisles
Data center curtains are used for data center air flow management and cold air / hot air containment for server aisles. Typically an enclosure is built around server racks using curtain panels, curtain corners and strip curtains for entryways. The data center curtain is mounted to the ceiling and hangs to touch the top of the server racks. Additional wall curtains fill empty spaces between the racks and strip curtains are placed on one or both ends of the enclosure to create an entryway. Additional air barriers are available to contain air flow between the racks and under the racks. An effective data center enclosure uses a variety of containment barriers to manage air flow patterns and control the temperature within the server aisles.
