BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, UK., Feb. 5, 2015 — Despite a challenging communications room layout, Chatsworth Products’ (CPI) energy-efficient products and solutions generated realistic savings for Menzies Aviation, a leading provider of passenger, ramp and cargo services in the United Kingdom.
The main challenge in Menzies Aviation’s communications room was low plenum ceilings. In some instances, structural beams only passed 300 mm above the tops of the cabinets, causing airflow to not regulate efficiently.
Impact Data Solutions (IDS), a designer and installer of IT equipment, suggested CPI’s Passive Cooling® Solutions featuring custom GF-Series GlobalFrame® Cabinets with Vertical Exhaust Ducts, split rear doors, solid side panels and vented front doors.
“CPI’s custom solution was the only solution that would work in this scenario,” Robbie Williams, CEO Director of IDS, stated.
With this solution, Menzies Aviation was able to maximize its cooling efficiencies without the need for additional CRAC units, in-row air conditioners or liquid cooling solutions.
Now, Menzies Aviation’s server room is running on free air cooling, and they are looking to achieve better efficiencies, while increasing their infrastructure footprint with ease.
