Franklin Lakes, NJ: September 8th, 2008 - Peter Sacco, president of PTS Data Center Solutions,
is featured in SearchDataCenter.com's article entitled, "Hot-Aisle/Cold Aisle Containment Stokes
Fire-Code issues". The article published September 5th, 2008, focuses on how hot-aisle/cold-aisle
design can be vulnerable to violating fire codes that require detection and prevention devices
throughout the room when isolating hot and cold air streams.
Sacco, an expert in the data center industry quotes: "In short, there is no good fire suppression methodology
for inside rack containment systems. For that purpose, coupled with temperature variance in a hot aisle,
we choose to do it in different ways" Sacco also comments on the importance of being in line with local
fire authorities, he quotes, "Many people do it and manufacturers are manufacturing the pieces,
but the local inspector is the final authority. If the local inspector doesn't
realize what's going on, the whole job might not be compliant."
Other experts in the data center industry we're featured for their knowledge
of hot-aisle/cold-aisle design, including William Tschudi, a project manager at Lawrence Berkeley
National Laboratory, Rob Menuet, a mechanical engineer at the Uptime Institute, and Bob Seese,
chief Data Center architect at Advanced Data Centers.
