Tips for Installing Drop Ceiling Panels for your Data Center Installing a drop ceiling system in your data center can be a major factor in your efforts to optimize cooling efficiency. Deploying a drop ceiling above the white space addresses several cooling issues, in that it: Reduces the quantity of air that need to be cooled, especially in rooms with high ceilings Increases control of ducted return air in the hot aisle Delivering warmer air to cooling units will increase cooling capacity Allows for implementing hot aisle containment to significantly increase cooling efficiency However a drop ceiling may sometimes present…

Hot Aisle vs. Cold Aisle Containment Data center environmental control is a critical issue in terms of IT efficiency and security. Both cold aisle and hot aisle containment can improve the efficiency of data centers, although currently, cold aisle containment is considered preferable. Here is an overview of both types of data center containment. Hot Aisle Containment A hot aisle containment system is one that that encloses the hot aisle to capture the hot air produced by the equipment, thus separating the hot and cold air and enabling the rest of the data center to become a cold air return….

Finding The Right Aisle Containment System Aisle Containment Panel Walls   An aisle containment system is generally used to separate hot and cold aisles in order to avoid the hot exhaust air and cooler supply air from mixing. This simple concept has proven extremely effective at minimizing cooling costs in the data center. Initially aisle containment systems consisted of physical barriers comprised merely of flexible strip curtains or clear plastic panels. These days, aisle containment systems are becoming more sophisticated, and are designed to be compliant with the new NFPA 75 data center code. The type of aisle containment system…
