Explore Hot & Cold Aisle Containment For Your Data Centre

Here at Cross-Guard, we understand the constant pressures faced by data centres to lower energy consumption, which is why our bespoke hot and cold aisle containment systems are developed to give you guaranteed cost and energy savings. Cross-Guard has a wide range of cold and hot aisle systems, all designed to deliver exceptional value and enhance your data centre design.

What is Aisle Containment?

Aisle containment works alongside your cooling method to ensure you reduce your energy costs and maximise return on investment while keeping your servers safe from excess levels of heat. Aisle containment is a solution which helps separate hot server exhaust air from cold air from your ACU, meaning your cooling system doesn’t need to work as hard and less energy is consumed.

What’s the difference between Cold and Hot Aisle Containment?

The principles of the solution remain the same for cold aisle and hot aisle containment, but the setup is different. With cold aisle containment, server cabinets are lined up with hot air exhausts facing out from the aisle cold air from the ACU is contained within the aisle and hot air is unable to enter and mix. For hot aisle containment, the server exhausts face into the aisle, and it is the hot air (not the cold air) which is contained within the aisle. This hot air is then safely vented away from the cold air using a plenum, and in certain cases can be re-used within a client’s heating system.

How can Aisle Containment benefit you?

Aisle containment is becoming increasingly popular within the data centre industry due to the benefits it brings. The core benefit is the return on investment- making the implementation of an aisle containment system a good business decision. Additionally, power usage effectiveness (PUE) is increased, you’ll cost savings on your energy bill, server equipment life is extended, and hot spots are reduced. Aisle containment also provides numerous benefits to the environment by reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions.
