Air Curtains - A Green Alternative
Reduce data center cooling costs by directing cold air
where it is needed most - through the computer racks! Air
Curtains and strip doors separate cold air and warm air aisles,
maximizing the dynamics of air flow to cool your data center. A
system can pay for itself in months!
Save energy on both air
conditioning and fan systems - 15% and 67% respectively (according to
a study by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)
The Air Curtain product
line includes transparent curtains, strip doors, panels and patented
hardware; create a solution specific to your needs.
vinyls are low-outgassing and anti-static while meeting ASTM and NFPA
fire retardancy requirements.

performs Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling prior to
deployment to guarantee the results, savings & performance.
Data Center Education Training Series
Comprehensive Data Center Training Brought to You by
the Experts in Data Center Design
The first PTS Data
Center Solutions course in Data Center Design and Management was a
great success. The depth of knowledge covered was extensive,
with attendees staying until 7 pm on the third day of training to
squeeze it all in. Several attendees mentioned the strengths of
the training included the interaction between the attendees and the
real-life questions that were brought to the table.
"The training was very insightful; the wisdom of many
professionals in this field put together wisely," Federico
Varela, an engineer with COMTEL Ingenieria.
Gustavo Varela, a product manager with COMTEL Ingenieria added "The
training changed the paradigms of what we thought was the whole truth
about Data Centers."
