Rack Level Management

Tate’s rack level airflow management products reduce high intake air temperatures by preventing hot exhaust air from circulating to the front of the IT cabinets. This improves IT equipment reliability and supports cooling infrastructure optimization.

Snap-In Modular Blanking Panels

Tate’s Snap-In Modular Blanking Panels are the best way to eliminate themigration of hot and cold air through unoccupied areas of an IT equipment rack. This innovative 19″ wide snap-in blanking panel is designed to fit in most standard racks. Ergonomically designed for simple tool free installation the Snap-In Modular Blanking panels are available in prefabricated sizes designed to fill One or Two U openings these panels provided a 99.97% effective seal. The blanking panels are also available with a quick view temperature strips that display atemperature range 50°- 102° F.

Pass-Through Blanking Panels

Tate’s Pass Through Blanking Panels are designed to provide an effective airflow sealing solution when used in conjunction with pullout switches or servers that may be occasionally extracted. The panels also provide a rack sealing solution where cables prevent solid blanking panels from being installed.

This aluminum and brush construction cost effectively controls airflow for optimized cooling effectiveness. Available in both 1U and 2U configurations the lab tested Pass Through Blanking Panels outperforms competitive brush style blanking panels.

Full Rack Modular Blanking Panels

Designed to seal up to 42U of opening in the server rack, the Full Rack Blanking Panel Kit greatly reduces bypass airflow by eliminating the gaps in the server rack and creating a contained server rack environment. This sealing solution increases usable cooling unit capacity, maximizing the effectiveness and efficiency of your cooling infrastructure. This sealing solution compliments HotLok Blanking Panels and completes the job of containing your cabinet for the most effective and efficient method of preventing bypass airflow.

Round 4″ Rack Mount Grommet

The Round Rack Mount Grommet is designed to seal 4″ (102mm) cable openings in the top of a server rack to block bypass airflow and maximize cooling system efficiency. Its revolutionary sealing technology greatly reduces costly bypass airflow through rack walls, increasing usable cooling unit capacity, and ensuring maximized efficiency from HVAC equipment.

Rack Airflow Management Kit

Designed to seal gaps between the rail and side of cabinet, the Rack Airflow Management Kit greatly reduces bypass airflow and re-circulation in your cabinets. The Rack Airflow Management Kit increases usable cooling unit capacity, maximizing the effectiveness and efficiency of your cooling infrastructure. This kit is designed as an effective tool for sealing airflow between the rail and side of cabinet while also isolating exhaust air at the rear of the cabinet. The “RAM Kit” compliments blanking panels and completes the job of sealing your cabinet. The Mounting Extrusion is made from Rigid PVC, the Sealing Membrane from Flexible PVC with a matte black finish.
