Product Description

AisleLok Modular Containment

Quick and easy to install out-of-the-box aisle containment

AisleLok Modular Containment is a quick and easy to install aisle containment solution for cold aisle or hot aisle containment straight out-of-the-box.  AisleLok Modular Containment comprises of three main components: rack top baffles, bi-directional aisle doors and an adjustable rack gap panel.

AisleLok Bi-Directional End-of-Aisle Doors

As part of the AisleLok Modular Containment system, the AisleLok bi-directional aisle doors are designed to prevent hot exhaust air from wrapping around the sides of racks and mixing with cold intake air.  Made from clear polycarbonate, the bi-directional doors attach to the side of the racks at the end of a hot or cold aisle. The bi-directional doors swing inward or outward when pushed, and then rest at the centre, allowing them to be opened with computer carts are pushed through.

The design of the AisleLok Bi-Directional Doors leaves a small gap between the doors. The size of this gap may vary depending on the cabinet manufacturer and the width of the aisle. Whilst this gap has little or no impact on the effectiveness of the doors to reduce IT equipment intake air temperatures, some prefer this opening covered. As a result Upsite Technologies has now introduced an optional AisleLok Bi-Directional Door Gap Seal Kit to cover this opening.

Each bi-directional aisle door features a kick-stand to allow it to remain in the open position.


The AisleLok bi-directional doors can be used with or without the AisleLok rack top baffles, however for maximum benefit both products are recommended.

  • Can be used for either hot aisle or cold aisle containment, or on stand-alone equipment.
  • Simple installation and the modular design allow the bi-directional doors to be easily removed, relocated or repositioned as your computer room evolves.
  • Consists of matching left hand and right hand door panels, with bi-directional swinging hinges.
  • Works best when the opposing rows of racks end evenly, but also can provide significant benefit when used on uneven or individual rows.
  • Beneficial in both raised floor and slab data centre environments.


  • Standardised off-the-shelf design, available in common rack heights.
  • No tools required for installation. The bi-directional doors attach directly to the side of the end-aisle cabinet using twist-locking magnets.
  • Quick and easy installation means minimal disruption to the data centre or computer room.
  • See-through doors provide maximum visibility in and out of the aisle.
  • Hands-free operation allows equipment carts to be pushed through the doors without the need to open them first.
  • Includes attached door stops to hold doors open when required.
  • UL94V flame rated materials.
