flexible gap seal for data centers

Increase the cooling efficiency of hot aisle/cold aisle isolation systems and drastically reduce energy costs with Simplex’s Flexible Gap Seals (FGS). Flexible Gap Seals close off gaps between racks in data centers most commonly created by mixing racks. These seals close air leaks around support pillars or other architectural features that creates gaps in data centers.

FGSs easily attach to racks utilizing a flexible magnetic side trim and are available in two sizes for gaps ranging from 1/2" wide up to 6" wide. FGSs are available in two proprietary materials: black PolySim polyurethan and black FlexSim PVC.

Installation

Installation is simple and fast. Squeeze the two edges together so that the magnet strip is facing out, and slide into the gap. The magnets seal to the sides of the racks, completing the installation. Trim the seal to fit the rack height with a knife or scissors if needed.

Custom heights are available. For larger gaps use the Simplex EFP line of filler panels.
