Sealed Racks

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am getting ready to build a server room in a new office and it will be my first

I have seen many racks that are enclosed having the glass front and or rear doors vs the perforated metal type that you see mostly.

I will only have 1 rack so will it be possible to use this type and a portable ac unit like this http://www.tripplite.com/en/products/model.cfm?txtModelID=4462 for cooling or is that a bad idea?

Or should I go with perforated racks?

This will be a free medical clinic that will be cooled but temp setpoint may be set higher during off hours
