For many businesses, data centres are vital for storing and processing vast amounts of data so it’s important that they are always up and running. When downtime is a costly inconvenience affecting the entire business, keeping servers properly maintained is crucial. From small-scale enterprise data centres to large corporate server rooms, keeping expensive systems and IT equipment working efficiently is of paramount importance. When preventing data centre downtime, one small accessory does a mighty job of keeping data centres running smoothly. Brush strip panels make up an important part of data centre maintenance and can help to protect your investment and prevent system failures.
Brush strip panels also called cable management brush strips provide a neat and tidy solution for keeping cable entry points free of debris and cables arranged neatly. Cable brush strips are a type of letterbox-shaped cable management panel with nylon bristles that seal off cable entry points. They attach to server racks in a similar fashion to blanking panels and can help support the functionality of servers and IT systems in a number of ways.
Brush Strips Help to Prevent Hot Spots in Data Centres
Overheating issues like hotspots are a common cause of poor performance and reliability issues with IT equipment. Hot spots occur within the data centre when airflow is mismanaged and brush strip panels are a great way to prevent this from occurring. Cable entry brush strips help to support the cooling infrastructure of your data centre by preventing cool air from escaping from server rack spaces. This helps to maximise the cooling system output and reduce the need for repairs or additional cooling equipment.
Keeping the server room or comms room clean and dust free is extremely important to keep valuable servers performing at their best. Even with regular cleaning, dust can get into hard-to-reach areas of the server cabinets and settle around the cable entry points. These dust particles build up and shorten the lifespan of your equipment by making internal cooling systems ineffective and can be the cause of many data centre failures. Some dust can cause corrosion to components deep within the data centre. Dust particles can also become electrically charged which can cause data loss by interfering with servers. Adding a rack brush strip is a good way to protect your data as well as your IT equipment.
Cables for power sources and other equipment can be neatly arranged with a brush strip panel. The organisation of wires coming out of the entry points not only creates a tidy appearance but also protects expensive cables from tangling and overheating by keeping them separated. Cable management brush panels are durable as well as being practical. The hardwearing, heavy-duty nylon bristles of the brush strips mean you won’t need to replace your cable management panel for a while so they can go on to protect your data centre for years.
