What is aisle containment?

Aisle containment is a cooling system that completely separates the cold supply airflow from the hot equipment exhaust air. This ultimately creates an even and consistent supply temperature to the intake of data center equipment and electronics, while the returning air is warmer and drier when it reaches the AC coil. There can be either hot or cold containment implemented, depending on your particular facility’s layout.

Hot Aisle Containment

Cool Shield hot aisle containment systems (HAC) channel the heat from the server exhaust directly back to the returns on the cooling units. 


Cold Aisle Containment

Cold aisle containment (CAC) isolates the cooled supply air from the CRAC units within direct proximity of the air intake of critical equipment.

Aisle containment components

Proper aisle containment creates a physical barrier that separates the hot and cold air from mixing. Containment panels or strips create a partition to isolate either the server supply air (cold aisle) or the exhaust air (hot aisle). Preventing the supply and exhaust air from mixing significantly increases the capacity and cooling efficiency of the cooling infrastructure.
