CPI’s Cabinet Supported Cold Aisle Containment (CAC) Solution isolates a room’s cold air supply and confines it to an entirely closed off area targeted at cooling IT equipment instead of the room. With the fronts of cabinets facing each other as they would in a typical cold aisle design, the addition of CPI’s doors on each end of the aisle and ceiling panels across those adjacent cabinet rows creates a complete segregation of hot and cold air.
Designed to meet the unique needs and preferences of each installation, CAC can span a continuous row of cabinets up to 52’L (15.8 m) long, aisles that are two or three raised access floor tiles wide, and elevates the ceiling 4”H (100 mm) to 12”H (300 mm) above the contained aisle for additional headroom. CAC is also equipped to support different cabinet heights through adjustable filler panels, ensuring that the performance and integrity of this isolation strategy reaches its fullest potential.
- Attaches to the tops of cabinets and elevates ceiling panels above cabinets
- Translucent polycarbonate panels allow light to enter the aisle
- Accommodates different height cabinets
- 4”H (100 mm), 8”H (200 mm) and 12”H (300 mm) elevations provide additional clearance above cabinets
