Polargy has released its PolarSnap quick install tool-less blanking panels. The panels’ patented, one-of-a-kind “hook-swing-snap” design enables installation and removal without tools, providing data center operators with improved flexibility in server rack maintenance. Installation consists simply of sliding a panel’s pivot pins into a rack’s mounting rail holes and snapping slide tabs at the opposite side of the panel into the opposing rail.
A gasket on the panel seals against the vertical rail, preventing leakage of hot exhaust air. PolarSnap blanking panels are available now in 1U, 2U, 3U, 4U, 5U, and 6U sizes and are packaged in boxes of 10.
