The AirArrest™ is a through-the-wall wire sealing solution for data centers, office buildings, and other structures that feature raised access floors with underfloor air distribution (UFAD). Designed to seal cable and wire access holes, the sealer uses patent-pending brush technology to prevent leakage of pressurized air around power and data cables that pass from room-to-room via through-the-wall cutouts. This sealing system leverages the use of thousands of polygonal-shaped filaments that nest together with little or no interstitial space. The edges of the filaments prevent them from moving past one another, thereby eliminating gaps that allow air leakage. It is constructed of an anodized aluminum frame and patent-pending Dyna-Seal™ brush technology. Installed during initial construction or added to existing buildings, the design allows for the addition and removal of wires and cables without the need to reseal or add new poke-through holes in order to accommodate future growth or changes in technology. According to the manufacturer, the sealing system offers the benefit of convenience, while significantly reducing the potential for air leakage throughout the life of a building.
