Whatever the size, scope or situation, CEG’s data center remediation experts have “been there, done that.” We offer the most comprehensive and diverse airflow management solutions available today.

You’ve had your data center assessed and know where the problems lie. You may have even implemented a few changes on your own. Awesome! But there’s more to do and bigger benefits to realize. How do you start? Where will you find the time and manpower?

Whatever the project, CEG’s data center remediation experts have “been there, done that.” Let us help you navigate through all the decisions (big and small) – hot versus cold, rigid versus soft, plugging all the holes, code compliance and green certifications.


The average data center could reduce their operating expense by $32,000 annually by implementing basic containment strategies. To determine the best approach for your facility, our experts will consider:

  • Rack design and density
  • Air flow pressure differentials
  • Cooling capacity and total load
  • Potential interference with cable trays, fire suppression or other components in the space
  • Requirements of local building codes

Humidity Controls

Understanding your environmental conditions is critical in making an intelligent choice when outfitting your environment. Just some of the factors to consider include budget, room size, altitude and available water sources.
