Safety compliant cold aisle roofs

Coolgenic cold aisle system is created from cold aisle doors, a cold aisle roof and infill panels (depending on whether infill panels are needed to complete the seal around the cold aisle enclosure).

Cross-Guard offers a range of roof options for your cold aisle enclosure, manufactured in-house and available for install by a dedicated team of installers. Although the standard colour is Pale Grey (RAL 7035), Coolgenic cold aisle roofs are available in a wide range of other colours.

Coolgenic roof options for your cold aisle enclosure

The cold aisle roof options available for your cold aisle enclosure include:

You can see below examples of collapsible and active cold aisle roofs. These are popular choices if you don’t wish to set up fire suppression within the cold aisle - you don’t need to modify your existing fire suppression system. For a roof option that integrates with your fire suppression system, but is also certified by US insurers as FM-approved in relation to quality and fire resistance, you may want to consider our shrinkable cold aisle roof.

Features of collapsible and active roofs

Collapsible roof system contains a low temperature ( 58 degrees) fusible link mechanism that allows access to sprinklers or gas fire suppression systems in data halls, eliminating the need to modify or extend sprinklers. The system can be adjusted to different aisle widths and lengths and can be installed on any cabinet type and size. Removable roof panels are easy to clean.

Overhead panels integrate with your fire suppression system to open automatically, allowing gas suppressant or water from sprinklers into the aisle. This means you don’t need to modify or extend room sprinklers. Panels can be installed to non-matching cabinets (any width or height).

Collapsible cold aisle roof

Coolgenic collapsible cold aisle roof panels can be installed on cabinets of any size/height as the channels and brackets are adjustable to different aisle lengths and widths. Panels are fixed with a low temperature (58°C) fusible link mechanism which melts in high temperatures to allow access to gas/liquid from your existing fire suppression system.

Collapsible cold aisle roof panels are lightweight, so there is minimal risk of injury if the panels collapse in the event of a fire. If you’re interested in the collapsible cold aisle roof, give us a call on +44 (0)20 8108 9328.

Active cold aisle roof

Active cold aisle roof panels integrate with the fire suppression system itself. Roof panels enclosing the aisle open automatically when your fire system is triggered, allowing liquid/gas fire suppression from your sprinklers into the cold aisle. Active cold aisle roof panels can be installed on cabinets that don’t match of any width or height.

Shrinkable (FM-approved) cold aisle roof

The shrinkable cold aisle roof consists of FM-approved clear plastic panels which shrink when certain temperatures are reached, allowing gas/liquid fire suppression to enter the cold aisle enclosure in your data centre. FM-approval means roof panels are certified by US insurers for quality and fire resistance, so you can be confident you’ll receive a compliant solution.

The lightweight property of these panels ensures minimal risk of injury if the panels shrink in the event of a fire. As with other cold aisle roof options, shrinkable cold aisle panels can be installed on any size/height cabinet.

To find out more about our FM-approved cold aisle roofs, call +44 (0)20 8108 9328.

Fixed cold aisle roof

Fixed Coolgenic cold aisle roof panels are held in place with 10mm stainless steel rods and are very easy to remove for cleaning. They do not integrate or work with your existing fire suppression system so alternative fire suppression arrangements will need to be made within the cold aisle enclosure. A popular choice for data centres, fixed panels can be installed on cabinets of any size and type.
