Data center aisle containment increases cooling and airflow efficiencies by isolating chilled intake air from hot exhaust air, reducing the operational costs associated with cooling and allowing for greater equipment densities. The unique design of DAMAC’s aisle containment system allows it to be quickly attached to any DAMAC rack or used with any 24″ wide third-party rack.
DAMAC’s Process for Aisle Containment
DAMAC enables organizations to focus their hot aisle and cold aisle containment strategies with less concern for the cost and downtime associated with retrofitting the data center facility. We understand that every data center is different and apply our engineering expertise to produce highly flexible products as well as cost-effective customized solutions.
Cold Aisle Containment Systems (CACS)
Reduce your energy costs by utilizing DAMAC’s cold aisle containment solution. With DAMAC’s cold-aisle containment solutions, the cold row is capped at the tops of the cabinets and across the aisle, and doors are installed at the ends of the row to contain the cold air.
Our team meets with each customer to analyze the data center facility, take measurements and fully understand the customer’s aisle-containment requirements and goals. DAMAC engineers will note discrepancies in the layout of the data center, rows that are missing racks and other variations.
DAMAC engineers develop your custom design
We create an assembly drawing, so the customer can view and approve the aisle-containment system.
Once approved, we handle manufacturing and are your one point of content.
The products are delivered to the customer in unmatched industry lead times. Because the products are exact to our customer’s specifications, installation is easy for data center maintenance personnel.
Factors to Consider in Implementing an Aisle Containment Strategy
Choosing the right aisle-containment solution depends upon several factors, including:
- Whether an existing data center must be retrofitted
- Data center density
- Uniformity of racks and aisles
- Whether “raised floor” cooling is employed
- Availability of a ceiling plenum to accept hot air
