CEG's Custom Containment Addresses Efficiency and Sustainability Goals

The right aisle containment strategy can not only improve network uptime but also reduce the operating cost and the carbon footprint of a data center, making it imperative that data center managers pick exactly the right system to deploy.

CEG is the industry’s go-to for custom containment strategies in IT environments of all sizes. Our experts will assess whether hot aisle or cold aisle containment is right for you. We can then design, fabricate, and install the components you need to reduce power usage, increase capacity, and achieve your sustainability goals.

CEG Custom Aisle Containment Solutions:

Custom Aisle Containment

Ensure efficient operation and sufficient redundant capacity.


Allow for circulation of only the necessary amount of cooled air, while isolating the heat created by the IT equipment.


Achieve a lower Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE).


For colocation facilities, increase the number of customers and/or amount of power that can be sold per suite.


Enable you to defer capital expenditure, from additional cooling units all the way up to a new data center build.

Hot aisle containment isolates hot exhaust air and provides a direct return path back to AC units. ~ Increases the cooling capacity of your CRAC/CRAH. ~ CEG’s custom hot aisle designs can be installed in raised floor or slab environments; new construction or retrofit.

Custom Hot Aisle Containment
