AisleLok® Modular Containment, manufactured by Upsite Technologies and distributed in EMEA by EDP Europe, has recently been selected as the winner of the “Bright Idea” award in the Modern Infrastructure Impact Awards by TechTarget.

The 2015 Modern Infrastructure Impact Awards recognise the top products and technologies in the essential areas of technology that Modern Infrastructure covers. The awards were judged by the Modern Infrastructure e-zine editorial staff, in conjunction with users, readers and industry experts.  Readers wrote that the value of AisleLok® is found in its “clever design and features, including magnetic attachments and quick, tool-less installation” and that “It is a unique product that provides a great alternative to full containment systems”.

AisleLok® Modular Containment is the industry’s first out-of-the-box aisle containment solution that can be deployed in minutes thanks to its non-intrusive, tool-less design.  The way AisleLok® Modular Containment is designed enables it to be reconfigured as the data centre evolves, and comprises of three core components:

AisleLok Modular Containment Rack Top Air Baffles

Rack Top Baffles

Rack Top Baffles are available to suit hot aisle or cold aisle containment configurations and available in popular widths of 600mm & 800mm wide.  As well as being quick to install, the baffles themselves can also be altered to suit either cold aisle or hot aisle containment to allow for even greater flexibility.

AisleLok Modular Containment - Bi-Directional Doors

Bi-Directional Doors

The Bi-Directional Doors attach to the cabinets at end of each aisle, preventing hot exhaust air from wrapping around the sides of the cabinets at the end of aisles.  The doors are quick to install thanks to the twist-to-attach fixing points.  The bi-directional swing action means that it’s easy to enter or leave the aisle even if carrying equipment.

AisleLok Modular Containment - Adjustable Rack Gap Panel

Adjustable Rack Gap Panel

The Adjustable Rack Gap Panel is designed to seal gaps between racks that are caused by building support columns or missing IT racks. The panel can seal gaps from 254mm up to 1.52m.


Talking of the award Peter Crook, President of Upsite Technologies, said “We are honoured that AisleLok Modular Containment has been named the winner of the ‘Bright Idea’ category of the 2015 Modern Infrastructure Impact Awards.  AisleLok Modular Containment is both a multi-faceted and practical solution for data centre owner / operators.  It is rewarding to see it recognised by such a reputable organisation as a winning product in the data centre space”.
