How to protect data centres from harmful debris

Data centres are mission-critical to modern society. Without them many of the technologies and systems we rely on to operate and grow our businesses would not be possible.  

There is no time for downtime in a data centre – every moment is crucial. Because they are full of sensitive IT equipment and machinery, they are also susceptible to damage from airborne debris. This damage can sometimes be catastrophic. 

Data centres require reliable protection from airborne seeds, insects, pollen and leaves. sophisticated cooling systems can be easily disrupted by external airborne debris, such as seeds, leaves, insects and litter. These airborne elements are naturally drawn inside air inlets, blocking fin coils and providing a potential food source for bacteria. What is the solution?
