EziBlank 19in Universal Blanking Panel
Rack blanking panel that fits any EIA-310-D compliant 19” rack
The Universal 19” rack blanking panel is part of a range of rack blanking solutions from EziBlank. Unlike the standard 19” 6U blanking panel, which only fits 19” racks with square hole mounting rails, the universal 6U rack blanking panel is compatible with any EIA-310-D 19” rack.
The panel features specially designed twist latches that are made from medical grade thermoplastic elastomer rubber that secure the panel to the mounting rails. The panel itself has moulded positioning studs that assist with the alignment of the panel making it easier to install regardless of the type of mounting hole.
Like other EziBlank panels the 6U panel can be resized at 1U intervals to the required size, simply by snapping off the required number of panels.
Why rack blanking panels are important?
The use of blanking panels in 19″ racks plays a vital role in Data Centre airflow management and are a part of cooling optimisation best practices.
Using blanking panels helps prevent the circulation of hot exhaust air from IT equipment back to the front of the rack where it can alter the temperature of the air cooling the equipment.
