Sealing the gap between the bottom of the cabinet and the floor is just as important as installing blanking panels and brush floor grommets.

Upsite Technologies, Inc., has released a new Magnetic Under Rack Panel which is easily installed, moved, re-applied, and adjusted for varying heights - all without the need for tools. Like their existing Under Rack Panel, Upsite’s new panel will improve the management of airflow which is an important best practice for data center cooling. The major difference between the new panel and the existing panel is the magnetic attachment method.

“Sealing the gap between the bottom of the cabinet and the floor is just as important as installing blanking panels and brush floor grommets,” said Lars Strong, Sr. Engineer & Company Science Officer at Upsite Technologies. “In some cases conditioned air bypasses server inlets by flowing under cabinets, in other cases damaging hot spots are created by hot exhaust air recirculation. In both cases sealing the gaps under cabinets will support improving cooling capacity and efficiency, and reducing operating costs.”

According to Upsite, both the current Adhesive Under Rack Panel and the new Magnetic Under Rack Panel offer tool-less application and height adjustments. The height adjustment is achieved by simply tearing away excess material by hand, made easy via pre-scored lines on the back of the panels. The one difference between the two panels is how they are applied. The original panel attaches with an adhesive to the bottom edge of the rack, where the magnetic panel simply attaches to the face of the rack. Both panels will seal a wide variety of today’s racks, and are a quick way to improve airflow management which supports IT equipment reliability, reduced operating expense, deferred capital expense, and increased cooling capacity.

Upsite Technologies’ new Magnetic Under Rack Panel is the latest addition to their AisleLok® line of products and is now available through Upsite’s distribution partners.
