INSTALLING THE AISLE CONTAINMENT DOOR
The Aisle Containment Door is bolted to the floor and supported to the top of TeraFrame or
GlobalFrame cabinets.
FLOOR PREPARATION
SLAB FLOOR
Install four concrete anchors, two for each side panel, using the floor drilling template to
accurately locate the holes. The template is not included with the door; it must be ordered
separately, 32875-701 for the double door or 32875-702 for the single door.
DOUBLE DOOR
For the double door, position the template (PN 32875-701) with the flanges down and the
holes close to the cabinet. The side flange should butt against the cabinet side and the
template should be centered on the aisle; the slots at the center of the template can be
used as a guide. Drill four holes, two at each end, through the template; the template holes
are 1/2” diameter which should be the correct size for 3/8” concrete anchors (not included).
If possible use the outside set of holes as shown in the picture below; the other holes can
be used if there is an obstruction in the concrete.

CABINET SUPPORTED COLD AISLE CONTAINMENT ROOF SYSTEMS
INTRODUCTION TO THE CABINET SUPPORTED COLD AISLE CONTAINMENT
ROOF SYSTEMS
The Cold Aisle Containment Ceiling Panel Kits from Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI) have
been developed to meet a wide range of application needs. Cold Aisle Containment Ceiling
Panel Kits attach to the tops of cabinets. Clear polycarbonate panels allow light to enter the
aisle. The system is designed to accommodate different height cabinets. Options are
available in 100, 200 and 300 mm height elevations to provide additional clearance space
above cabinets.
SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNING:
COLD AISLE CONTAINMENT ROOF SYSTEMS ARE DESIGNED TO BE
SECURELY ATTACHED TO THE ROOF STRUCTURE OF THE INSTALLED
CABINETS.
DO NOT LEAVE ASSEMBLY UNSECURED TO CABINETS.
CABINETS MUST BE STABLILIZED PRIOR TO AISLE CONTAINMENT ROOF
SYSTEM ASSEMBLY.
CAUTION SHOULD BE EXERCISED TO ENSURE THE CABINET LOAD
RATING IS NOT EXCEEDED.
SITE PREPARATION
 Measure row lengths; order a roof system with a compatible adjustment range.
 Length of roof can be adjusted (larger) by approximately 4” (100mm) on each end.
 Attachment to cabinets will require holes in top of cabinet. Custom brackets may be
required IF a non-CPI cabinets are used, or if deployed in an aisle that is not 48”
(1200) or 72”(1800) wide. Contact CPI customer service for more information.
 At ends of row, cabinet heights should be level across the row.
 Each cabinet under the ceiling will need to support the additional weight of the
ceiling:
o For cabinets on the ends of the aisles, plan for an additional 43 lb (19.5 kg)
per cabinet.
o For cabinets in the middle of the aisle, plan for an additional
21 lb (9.5 kg) per cabinet.

INSTALLING THE COLD AISLE ROOF SYSTEM:
BUILDING THE FRAME:
1. Open boxes and organize materials. Separate the beam sections into two sets of
equivalent length components, one for each side of the row.
2. Install foam tape to underside of beam as shown below.
3. The nominal roof lengths are minimums, each end panel allows for approximately 4”
(100mm) of increase in the aisle length. Measure the actual cabinet row length, this
measurement must be slightly larger than the ordered “nominal” roof length. Position the
end of the first beam approximately half of the difference inboard from the side panel of
the end cabinet. For example, if a row of cabinets measures 6100mm, a 6000mm roof
containment system should be deployed, and the starting beam should be positioned
50mm inboard of the end cabinet.

PREPARING THE POLY PANELS AND H-CHANNELS:
1. The ribs of the double wall poly panels are oriented in a vertical direction. For each cabinet
height, cut the vertical dimension of the panels to be equal to the cabinet to ceiling distance
less approximately 6”. Cut using a sharp knife and a straight edge. For best results, use
specialized cutting tools like the Guardian Knife Guide and Coro-Claw™ by Saw Trax Mfg.
Inc., to cut across or with the ribs respectively.
2. After cutting, remove protective film from both sides of the plastic panel.
3. Plastic H-channels are used to join adjacent poly panels that are not connected with the
lateral brace accessory. The H-channels should be cut to the cabinet to ceiling distance
less approximately 13 inches. The plastic H-channels are saw cut.

ATTACHING POLY PANELS, LATERAL BRACES, AND H-CHANNELS
1. Orient the panel above the cabinet and slide one edge horizontally behind the upper frame
panel bolt. Arch the panel to clear the clamp stud on the opposite side as shown below –
top, left.
2. Install clamp brackets as shown in the image below – top, right. Position the panel 1.5” from
the ceiling and tighten the clamps to secure.
3. If a lateral brace is not used between adjacent panels, install an H-channel extrusion over
the plastic edge as shown in the image below – bottom, left. To minimize friction and ease
installation, wipe the edge of the sheet with a damp towel just prior to installing the channel.
4. If a lateral brace is used between adjacent panels, install the small L-clamps to the vertical
brace beam to secure the upper region of the panel.
5. Repeat the poly panel installation process for all remaining cabinets.

Q: Can the door system be used with any cabinet?
A: The door system was designed to be used with F-Series TeraFrame or GF-Series
GlobalFrame cabinets; other cabinets may require special brackets to attach the door
system to the top of the cabinet.
Q: What cabinet heights can the door system be used with?
A: The door system will work with F-Series TeraFrame and GF-Series GlobalFrame
Cabinet heights from 42U to 52U.
Q: What aisle widths will the door system work with?
A: The door system will work with aisle widths of 36” – 48” for single doors and 48” – 72” for
double doors.
Q: What is the door opening width?
A: The door opening is 32” for the single door and 44” for the double door.
Q: What aisle lengths are available for Cold Aisle Containment?
A: CPI offers standard part number configurations for cabinet aisle lengths of 12’ (3.6 m) to
52’ (16 m). Each of these systems includes a telescoping roof section that can infinitely
adjust the roof system an additional 8” (200 mm) in length.
Q: What aisle widths are available?
A: CPI offers the cold aisle containment roof system in two standard aisle widths of 48 and
72” (1.2 amd 1.8 meters) or 2 and 3 floor tiles. The design of the roof system
accommodates about 2 inches of compliance in the row width. CPI cabinets are
recommended, however, if your application includes other manufacturer’s cabinets, contact
CPI Technical Support.
Q: What if my cabinets have varying heights?
A: The simplest installation results when all cabinets are of a consistent height. If the
tallest frames in an aisle are relatively evenly distributed along the length of the aisle (and
along both sides of the aisle), and have an adequate load rating to support the additional
weight of the roof structure, lower cabinets can be sealed to the roof structure with the dropdown sealing panels (see CPI PNs 32720 and 32728). If not, consider CPI’s Frame
Supported Hot Aisle Containment Solution.

Q: What if there is an uneven gap between the two door assemblies.
A: Either one of both of the door assemblies is not level. Adjust the leveling nuts to level
the doors and eliminate the gap.
Q: What if the door vertical gasket stops before sealing to the vertical L shaped
bracket on the side assemblies?
A: The door(s) are not centered on the track. Loosen hardware securing door support
brackets to the trolley system. Slide door assemblies left or right as required. Re-tighten
hardware.
Q: What if the door stops before fully closing?
A: Adjust door brush seal height if too low. Door support hardware may be overtightened.
Loosen M8 hardware securing door to support brackets. Loosen leveling nuts to lower door
assembly. Check operation. If improved, tighted the M8 nuts attaching the door assembly
to the bracket finger tight then ¼ turn with a wrench.
