Best in-rack airflow management

Our airflow management pack seals the space between the vertical mounting rails (VMRs) and the side panels; our solution will cover every possible gap in a 600 mm wide or an 800 mm wide cabinet. For 800 mm wide cabinets, the side skirts feature 12 cutouts to place different accessories and allow cable entry from front to rear.


Covering all possible leaking points

In addition to sealing the space between the VMRs and the side panels, our airflow management package also seals between the VMRs and the top and bottom of the cabinet. The solution provides an airtight cabinet with the VMRs being mounted up to 250 mm inside the cabinet.

Unrivaled airtight accessories

Fill the cut-outs of your 800 mm airflow management package with blind plates if no cables need to go through. If cables do need to be guided through, you can choose the cable entry brush or take advantage of our innovative solution that uses foam.
