FM approved cold aisle roof panels: an overview

Introducing FM approved cold aisle roofs

In May last year, we shared news of a new product addition for Cross-Guard’s Coolgenic cold aisle containment systems: FM approved cold aisle roof panels. These cold aisle roof panels have been independently tested to give clients peace of mind that they will receive a superior cold aisle product certified to fire safety standards by US insurers. The cold aisle roofs are manufactured from a shrinkable plastic that shrinks once dangerous temperature levels are reached, allowing fire suppression access to your data centre cold aisle.

Coolgenic cold aisle containment: quality, bespoke cold aisle products

Cross-Guard’s Coolgenic cold aisle containment was developed with flexibility and versatility in mind. Giving you a range of cold aisle door and cold aisle roof options to suit, Cross-Guard designed Coolgenic cold aisle containment products to function with both new and existing server cabinets. Cross-Guard frequently receives bespoke product and service requests from clients, including requests for products developed to certain specifications and standards. The company is always happy to serve the needs of the client, whether the requirement is for a cold aisle containment system or another product.

FM approved cold aisle containment roof panels were originally fulfilled at the request of a leading data centre operator. The client required cold aisle roof panels certified to set standards for guaranteed quality and fire resistance so Cross-Guard worked with the client to develop its FM approved cold aisle roof panels. These Coolgenic cold aisle shrinkable roof panels were tested and approved by US insurers to meet the high standards required.

FM approved cold aisle roof features and benefits

FM approved cold aisle roof panels are extremely lightweight. The cold aisle roof panels are not dissimilar to Cross-Guard’s cold aisle fixed roof in terms of appearance, but the design of the FM approved cold aisle panels is much sleeker with smaller profile brackets. This gives an aesthetically pleasing look to enhance your data centre space.

FM approved Coolgenic cold aisle roof panels have the benefit of proven fire safety. The lightweight property of the cold aisle panels ensures that when the plastic shrivels, shrinks and drops down, in the event of a fire, there is no risk of injury and fire suppression systems gain unrestricted access. As is the case with all Cross-Guard Coolgenic cold aisle products, FM approved cold aisle roof panels can be installed on any size or type of server cabinet, including existing server cabinets.

Initial installation of FM approved cold aisle panels and client feedback

Following installation of the first FM approved cold aisle roof panels last year, the client Cross-Guard partnered with was impressed with result. Installation of the cold aisle product took place quickly and discretely with Cross-Guard’s installers, as always, respecting the nature of the client’s business.

A Cross-Guard colleague who was part of the initial installation said: “Our client was happy with the FM approved cold aisle roof panels and feedback so far from further installations has also been overwhelmingly positive.

“At Cross-Guard, we enjoy discovering new ways to develop and install products to meet the specific needs of our clients, and we work hard to deliver quick turnaround.”
