Server rooms are vital in today's world, as they house computer systems and their associated components, such as data storage systems and telecommunications. Server rooms also house backup features in case of systems failure and various security devices.
Having all this computer equipment in one place means there is a tendency towards dust formation and static discharge - which could be disastrous. Any temperature increase could lead to the hardware overheating, causing potential loss of data and system lockups. Also, there is an increased fire risk, which could lead to permanent damage.
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) releases static electricity when two objects come into contact. This could occur because of people moving about the server room, poor connections between the hardware housed there, or an electric short, for example. The result can be devastating if an ESD spark occurs in a server aisle or rack. Expensive high-powered servers and other equipment can become permanently damaged, even by a small voltage of ESD.
What are anti-static plastic curtains?
The range of anti-static plastic curtains available at Strip Curtains Direct is made from a transparent, green-tinted vinyl that contains an anti-static additive. They are designed to be used in server rooms, server environments, electronic manufacturing plants, and workshops, i.e. "clean rooms".
Anti-static PVC curtains are semi-flexible curtains that can be used for airflow management in the aforementioned commercial premises. Suitable for pedestrian or light vehicle use, they offer an excellent barrier against noise and air pollution and are an effective temperature control device.
Available as a kit in various widths or bulk roll, we also offer our anti-static PVC as a replacement strip, enabling you to maintain your curtain easily.
We can also offer our anti-static curtains as a made-to-measure order so that you can customise the kit to your specific airflow requirements and dimensions.
How do anti-static PVC curtains help with airflow?
As we have mentioned above, even the smallest electrical discharge could cause damage to the critical components within your server room. The frightening thing is these charges can build up over some time and may not be noticeable from day to day - until it has got to the point where they could damage your servers.
To fully protect your server room, therefore, you should use anti-static PVC curtains, which give you high levels of resistance to static build-up. These curtains can help prevent large-scale damage to your servers, so they can be considered a cost-saving investment in the long run. If you use PVC curtains in your server room, they need to be anti-static ones designed to last for a long time.
