SwitchFix 1U Passive, Rear Intake Airflow System for Network Switches

The SwitchFix SF001-PR5 easily solves cooling problems associated with network switches mounted in the back of the rack. It allows your switches to benefit from cooler airflow and comply with Hot Aisle/Cold Aisle best practices.

Network switch equipment typically sits at the top and back portion of the server rack. This placement makes it difficult for cool air from the cold aisle to reach the intake side(s) of the network switch. The SwitchFix solves this problem by extending from the front of the rack to the switch at the back of the rack, allowing cold aisle air to reach the network equipment.
