Don’t Overlook Blanking Panels for Cost-Effective Rack Cooling

June 3, 2013 Tripp Lite Tags: Blank Panel, Blank Rack Panel, Blanking Panel

When planning your data center cooling strategy, the use of blanking panels in empty rack spaces can greatly improve rack cabinet cooling at a fraction of the cost of forced heat removal or supplemental air conditioning. Energy Star has included blanking panels as key devices for efficient airflow control in server rooms.

Blanking Panels Can Greatly Improve Rack Cabinet Cooling

Rack enclosures are designed for front-to-rear airflow. Cool air flows through the perforated front door and cools your equipment, which exhausts warm air through the perforated rear doors. Airflow management prevents warm air from recirculating and contaminating cool air.

Block empty rack spaces with SR1UPANEL10 and SR1UPANEL50 blanking panels to prevent heat recirculation.
