Retrofit solution from Cannon Technologies adds cold aisle containment to legacy racks without downtime

Cannon retro-Fit Aisle Cocooning (3)

Aisle containment can significantly increase the operational life of a facility enabling further technology refreshes and the deployment of modern higher power-density servers and active equipment.

The Cannon Retrofit Cold-Aisle Cocooning solution can be easily retrofitted to most vendors’ racks – but more than that, it can be fitted to rows of mixed vendor racks with varying heights in what is known as a ‘Manhattan skyline’ configuration.

Using an above-rack beam system to support the containment ceiling the gap from ceiling to top-of-rack is filled with an ‘eyebrow’ which permits the varying height of racks to be accommodated. It also permits future easy removal/replacement of individual racks.

This process means that in most cases no existing cabling or raceway need to be moved or disturbed – and the production servers it the racks are not interrupted at all.
