Touting it as a modular and highly flexible aisle containment solution that separates hot and cold airflows in an energy-efficient manner, data centre maker, Minkels has announced launching the Next Generation Cold Corridor.

april2013-mktp07Minkels revealed that it had launched the first version of the Cold Corridor system at the CeBIT in 2006, and has now incorporated modularity in its new design

The manufacturer lists the following product features and advantages:

  • New design roof panels with a high level of light transmission
  • Plug & Play integration of monitoring sensors
  • Access and access control and air-tightness, which prevent leakage of cooling air
  • PIN code system or card reader system, which offer a broad choice of security options and (automatic) door systems
  • Ease of installation
  • Optional modules based on clients’ best practices
  • Compatible with a variety for fire extinguishing systems

In addition to the above, Jeroen Hol, CEO at Minkels, said: “Virtualisation and cloud computing have given data centre dynamics a considerable boost. As an extension of this development, users are expressing a growing need for highly scalable, and, therefore, flexible data centre solutions. They want to be able to conveniently upscale or downscale a data centre whenever necessary. Cost considerations also play a role in this call for flexibility. This highly modular design offers extensive opportunities to implement such a Cold Corridor solution in stages and, therefore, more cost effectively, too.”
