Surface mount cable seal keeps data centers cool

August 8, 2007 -- PDU Cables, a manufacturer of power distribution cable assemblies, has expanded its Air Guard Cable Seal product line to include a surface mount model, designed to reduce cool air loss in existing data centers.

"Existing data centers with unprotected, exposed areas may be spending tens of thousands of dollars in additional energy costs," contends Duncan Lee, CEO of PDU Cables. "The Air Guard Cable Seal surface mount model is a cost-effective way to retrofit those data centers for combating cool air loss, conserving energy, and eliminating that needless expense."

According to the company, a single 10- by 10-inch Air Guard covers irregular, existing cutouts and protects cable arrangements in up to a 6- by 7-inch area. Overlapping brushes seal cable openings and help prevent under-floor contamination while sparing expensive electronic equipment from overheating by improving static pressure to cool data center equipment.

The Air Guard's flame-retardant ABS polycarbonate finish, solid construction, and textured surface are designed to complement all floor coverings. Also, the product's low-profile design features beveled edges to avoid posing a tripping hazard. Further, although the surface mount model is packaged with mounting hardware, an adhesive strip covered by a foam seal provides an installation alternative that does not require hardware.

"We've incorporated exceptional durability and design features into our new model, as well as our popular raised floor model for new construction," notes PDU's Lee.

The product will be available for shipping in October, says the company.
