Data center post rack grommet's design optimized to eliminate bypass airflow

Jan. 9, 2014
The new KoldLok 2 post rack grommet from Upsite eliminates data center bypass airflow, installs in minutes and requires no cutting, modifying or tools.

Upsite Technologies has introduced its latest data center airflow management product, the KoldLok 2 post rack grommet.

Optimized to advance efficiency in the data center through proper airflow management, the easy-to-install grommet prevents bypass airflow by sealing off the rectangular area in the 2 post structure of the data center cabinet, while promoting clean data center best practices by preventing dust and other debris from getting trapped in hard-to-reach areas.

According to Upsite, key features of the KoldLok 2 post rack grommet include: a split design to allow for retrofit installation; a design that works with variations in rack material thickness; an installation that requires no cutting, modifying or tools; RoHS compliance.

“The KoldLok 2 Post Rack Grommet is an easy-to-install airflow management product that gives data center managers the ability to realize instant efficiency gains,” asserts John Thornell, President, Upsite Technologies.

Upsite notes that it recently conducted a review of numerous data centers throughout the country, finding that only thirteen-percent were maximizing their cooling capacity, highlighting a vast opportunity for airflow management (AFM) best practices.
