The Cool Shield AirStrip is an expanding foam tape designed to prevent unwanted air loss from gaps in contained aisles, server rack rows and data center infrastructure. Strips can be used above or below containment panels, next to rack rails, under server cabinets or in gaps in raised flooring. Filling gaps significantly improves cooling efficiency by preventing bypass airflow and hot air recirculation.
Expanding foam can be used for gaps ranging from ¼” to 1 ½”. When installed, the compressed strips gradually expand until gaps are filled or reach maximum thickness. Strips feature an adhesive on one side making installation to nearly any surface quick and easy. Simply peel off the protective paper and adhere the strips directly to one edge and wait for the foam to expand to fill the gap. Foam material is durable, fire retardant and non-particulating which makes it ideal for data center use.
