Colorful and artistic blanking panels for data center racks

April 1, 2016
Polargy’s newest blanking panels are now available in color schemes and custom art options while sealing empty racks for thermal management.

Polargy Inc. recently added new options to its line of PolarFlex blanking panels. “With new all-white, all-black and custom art options, PolarFlex panels can complement the aesthetic of any data center and even offer custom corporate branding,” the company said. “The popular original PolarFlex design, preprinted with server images, remains in the lineup. All PolarFlex styles are immediately available in 42U, 45U, and 48U heights.

Polargy’s line of PolarFlex rack blanking panels are designed to seal empty racks and large unoccupied space3s in server cabinets,” the company continued. “Improving data center efficiency with cost-effective airflow containment is top-of-mind for IT manager, as is maintaining a professional and attractive facility.”

PolarFlex panels are trimmed to size with scissors, so when empty racks become populated, panels can be resized to accommodate new IT gear. PolarFlex blanking panels are made of UL-94-VO fire-rated Lexan film and come packed in boxes of 10 panels.

Cary Frame, Polargy’s president, observed, “Data centers often house rows of racks that remain unpopulated for some time, and because of new higher-density equipment, some racks may be only partially filled. For empty or partially filled racks, PolarFlex blanking panels are a convenient and cost-effective airflow management solution instead of buying, installing and storing hundreds of individual molded plastic 1U and 2U blanks.”
