Belden's passive and active Chimney Containment solutions maximize computing density while reducing cooling costs. Vertical panels direct hot return air to the overhead return plenum, eliminating mixing and improving the operating efficiency of perimeter CRAC units. Using a fully ducted cold-air delivery system with vertical panels also allows cold air to be placed directly into the cold aisle, eliminating the need to use underfloor space for supply air.
