HOT AISLE CONTAINMENT
Prism Thermal Containment Solution
Heat naturally rises. Rather than fighting this universal law of physics, HAC systems embrace it by channelling waste heat from your servers up and into a ceiling void or other overhead CRAC/CRAH system return. Our hot aisle containment solution is built to be operationally efficient and aesthetic. All Prism solutions are bespoke made and can be tailored to your specific needs. Customizable features include a choice of fixed and sliding windows.

The key to efficiency is preventing cold and hot air mixing
HAC systems channel the hot, dry waste air from your servers directly to your CRAC intake, before it can mix with the cool air delivered to the servers. This makes cooling that air more efficient.
Perfect for raised and slab floor datacentres
One of the great strengths of a Hot Air Containment system is that it does not rely on a ﬂoor void of any kind. The cool air from your CRAC/CRAH units can simply be supplied into the room, where it will naturally gravitate to the server intakes near the ﬂoor. The hot exhaust air can be vented into a suspended ceiling plenum, or a system of simple ducts. What that all means for you is a system that can be installed inexpensively in almost any data centre or server room, yet keeps the supply and return airﬂows rigidly separated. This in turn allows you to run your AC coil at its hottest and most eﬃcient setting, in some cases doubling your actual cooling capacity and reducing energy costs by as much as 38% at the same time!
