  • What is a Blanking Panel? What is a Filler Panel?

Blanking Panels Suited for Any Rack Environment

  • Universal Blanking Panels: Installs in any 19" rack any hole using a Phillips head screwdriver
  • Tool-less Blanking Panels: Provide fast installation (no tools required), but only work in square hole racks
  • Snap-In Tool-less Blanking Panels: Plastic blanking panels that just "snap-in" for quick, budget-friendly solution (square hole only)
  • Vented Blanking Panels: Allow air to pass through while still giving the rack a clean look

Blanking Panels, also called "filler panels", are used to control the airflow inside of server racks. Without blanking panels, the hot exhaust air from the rear of the servers will recirculate through empty spaces in the server rack into the air intakes on the front of the servers. This reused hot air will significantly reduce the cooling efficiency of the system. Filler panels are the easiest and first step towards achieving your Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) goals. Unlike many products on the market, RackSolutions Filler Panels use an innovative stability flange design to prevent airflow from flexing the filler panel. This reduces noise and vibration when a high amount of air is pushed into the filler panel. Along with the increase in airflow efficiency, RackSolutions filler panels give your rack a seamless and professional appearance. All our blanking panels are compatible with all EIA Standard 19" racks and cabinets.

How Blanking Panels Help Direct Rack Airflow

Without the use of blanking panels, hot exhaust air can be recirculated back into the cold aisle and reduce the cooling efficiency of the system.
