Pentair Technical Products introduced the Hoffman brand Proline containment system, designed to segregate cold (intake) and hot (exhaust) air. Consisting of aisle doors, ceiling panels and chimney stacks, the containment system can be used for hot or cold air containment, preventing the air from mixing which, says the company, can lead to poor cooling and wasted energy. By increasing cooling efficiency, the system manages a higher thermal density without requiring additional cooling units. Available for use on raised or non-raised floors in small to large data centres, the system is designed for use with the company’s line of Proline cabinets (but can be modified to work with alternative enclosure brands). The Proline containment system accommodates 36-in. and 48-in. aisles. With ergonomically positioned interior and exterior grab handles, safety glass and interior lighting, the aisle doors allow complete accessibility and visibility of network equipment.
