KoldBlox CHAC KoldBlox


KoldBlox Cold/Hot Aisle Containment is a non-intrusive, bespoke retrofit to Data Centres, whereby the cold aisle is contained to maximise cooling efficiency. By preventing the recirculation of air back to the CRAC units it significantly improves the efficiency of your building's cooling system and helps reduce your carbon footprint.

By creating a positive pressure in the cold aisle, air is directed straight into the servers, making them run more efficiently and reducing the risk of failure. Also, in the event of a total cooling shutdown, Cold/Hot Aisle Containment stops a heat outage for 35 minutes, giving you more time to react. Being able to regulate the airflow enables better control of the room's temperature. Increasing the temperature of CRAC units by 1°C, provides a typical saving in the region of 4% of cooling power bills. In addition, the chiller units will make greater use of natural air temperature (free cooling), further enhancing energy savings. 74% of server failures occur in the top third of the rack where the temperature is traditionally hotter. KoldBlox Cold/Hot Aisle Containment provides temperature equilibrium across all servers, no matter where they are positioned in the rack.
