Channel Systems manufactures our patent-pending Zone Wall™ panelized system for highly effective cold aisle and hot aisle containment. Inferior containment solutions may cause servers to leak cold air into the hot air stream at a rate 25%-130% of their designed flow rate which causes a real world impact on the annual energy cost to operate a data center. Numerous panel types are available such as aluminum honeycomb, insulated panels, or clear/opaque plastic. The system is easily installed and creates a properly sealed joint against walls, ceilings, servers, and other data center equipment.
Zone Wall™ also integrates with our modular single and sliding doors. Strips can also be substituted into our top track extrusion if requested. You can mix and match panels, doors, and strips to fit your specific company needs. A complete line of accessories is available.
