HotLok® Blanking Panels

HotLok® Blanking Panels provide the lowest total cost of ownership and highest energy dollar savings of any blanking panel on the market. HotLok® immediately increases the efficiency of your cooling system and delivers quick payback and long term energy cost savings.

The HotLok® Blanking Panel is a snap-in blanking panel that provides a 99.97+%+ effective
seal in IT equipment cabinets. The state-of-the-art technology, designed for both 1U and 2U
openings, controls airflow for optimized cooling effectiveness.

HotLok Blanking Panel is Upsite’s latest green solution for energy savings and reducing the
carbon footprint of data centers.

Both 1U- and 2U-configured versions achieve the following:

  • Reduce hotspots and bypass airflow by preventing equipment exhaust air or hot-aisle air from migrating to the conditioned air-intake stream at the front of the cabinet
  • Deliver lower temperature conditioned air to the upper one-third of the cabinet, typically the hottest area and most prone to equipment failure
  • Control airflow to save energy by adjusting cooling unit setpoints

Sealing Effectiveness: Superior sealing can result in a 29% decrease in operating expenses
Versatility: Fits all standard 19” cabinet openings
Availability of Sizes: Convenient 1U & 2U sizes to maximize efficiency
Ease of Installation: Ergonomic design and tool-less, snap-in installation
Ease of Storage: Stacks easily and does not require storage containers
Sustainability: Manufactured in the USA with 100% recyclable materials

  • Control airflow to save energy by adjusting cooling unit setpoints
  • Identify temperatures within a particular range, accurate to within +/- 1° C:
  • Blue: Optimal Operating Range based on recommendations from ASHRAE
  • Yellow: Acceptable Operating Range based on equipment manufacturers’ recommendations for Class 1 IT equipment
  • Red:  Outside acceptable operating range, indicates a definite hotspot or potential for condensation, either of which may result in equipment damage or failure
