Part Number: 49-PF-27U-10

Good practice in the data centre requires that unused U space is sealed with blanking panels to prevent hot exhaust air from finding its way to the air intake area at the front of the cabinet. PlenaFill® blanking panels are supplied in 27U sheets and can be cut to any required size, avoiding the need to store several sizes of traditional blanking panel.

Product Description

PlenaFill Blanking Panels

PlenaFill® blanking panels are supplied in 27U sheets and can be cut to any required size, avoiding the need to store several sizes of traditional blanking panel. PlenaFill® blanking panels are a proven solution to eliminate hot spots and reduce overal cabinet temperatures. Air-intake temperature is known to be a significant factor in the reliability of IT equipment, with raised intake temperatures leading to equipment failure and expensive downtime. A major cause of raised air-intake temperatures is hot exhaust air recirculating through unsealed, open rack space. Using blanking panels helps eliminate this issue. However, standard blanking panels have a horizontal gap between them that still allows hot exhaust air to leak into the front of the rack. PlenaFill® blanking panels are fixed in a sheet and eliminate this gap. Also by preventing the recirculation of hot exhaust air you’ll reduce bypass airflow and save on energy costs.
