What is the impact of removing side panels between enclosures?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 1/26/2011


I just purchased some NetShelter SX enclosures for a new blade server deployment. I had planned to run inter-enclosure cabling in bundles under the raised floor. But, my co-location provider will not allow me to put anything below the floor and I cannot expose any cables outside my enclosures, e.g. overhead ladder rack.

I can remove the side panels between adjacent enclosures. Are there other options? I am concerned that removing side panels may impact airflow and cause a heat issue inside my enclosures.

If on the roof as clarkson suggested is not an option for you (you could screen from front and rear view the roof-top cables by using data cable partitions--parts such as [AR8162ABLK|http://www.apc.com/products/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=AR8162ABLK]), then you could replace the side panels that come with the NetShelter with the Split Feed Through Side Panels, such as [AR7305|http://www.apc.com/products/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=AR7305&tab=models].
