California Title 24 Compliance for Aisle Containment
As of July 1, 2014, California’s Title 24 of the Building Efficiency Standards has become mandatory. This means that each newly constructed data center must have a form of airflow containment in the facility. This prevents air from recirculating throughout the facility and causing inadvertent temperature changes. If this is permitted to happen, cooling expenses are higher, and over time, equipment will become damaged.
One of the best solutions for containment is cold aisle containment. This is comprised of barriers that contain the cool air supply to the IT equipment’s intake, ensuring predictable and uniform temperatures throughout the aisle.
