Studies have shown that additionally up to 30% cold air is lost if the rack front sealing is poor. Warm and cold air can mix in part-loaded racks or through openings in the studding. This can lead to undesired hot spots. Unnecessary high input of energy is required to compensate these undesired airflows by provision of more cool air.
Hence, the lateral rack seal from HANNO, an investment with quick ROI, is the necessary complement to closing the cable openings in computer center raised floor and makes a sizable contribution to improving energy efficiency and cut the operating costs of computer centers.
