Q Do you know where I might buy soft walls (“meat locker sheets”) for data center cold aisle enclosures?

Karl Wyatt

A You are probably thinking of either Goff’s Curtain Walls, which areavailable as single, two-sided, three-sided, or four-sided models orStrip Doors, which are usually installed on dock doors. The singlecurtain walls are available in different heights from 8′ to 12′ andwidths from 6′ to 24′. The multi-sided models are 24′ wide and come inmodels ranging from 8′ to 12′ high.

Thestrip doors can be bought in various kit sizes to fit most standarddock doors, in bulk rolls to make your own, or in custom cut strips.

One vendor I am familiar with is C&H Distributors, LLC. Sizes, pricing, and other options can be reviewed at the company’s Web site.
