It is universally understood that preventing hot air recirculating internally from the back of the data rack has many upsides, including prevention of hot spots and a reduction in energy consumption. The 4210 anti-air recirculation kit comprises vertical brush strip to each side of the 19” mounting angles and 2 x horizontal blanking panels above and below the 19” mounting angles. To help achieve best practice—fit EaziBlank blanking panels into unused U spaces within the rack to help minimise hot air recirculation.
Enhanced airflow management can be achieved with the addition of 4210 brush strip sealing kits which create a seal to prevent hot air re-circulating to the front 19” plenum.
Fitting 19” blanking or EaziBlank panels (and deploying rack air anti-recirculation kits) helps to avoid air mixing and recirculation within the rack space which in turn helps to maximise the cooling infrastructure effectiveness by delivering cool air to the equipment and not allowing it to bypass through empty U spaces.
