The Vertiv Geist SwitchAir- SA1-02005 is a passive 2U airflow management device for rear rack mounted 2U switches with side air intake. Channels provide a dedicated path for cold aisle air to flow to the intake of the switch, using the on-board fans of the network devices to pull cool air from the front of the cabinet. The SwitchAir also creates a barrier preventing recirculation of hot exhaust air from the hot aisle from entering switch intakes.


  • Provides a path for cool air to flow to the intake of network switch equipment and other devices with a single side intake.
  • Creates a barrier to effectively prevent hot exhaust air from recirculating to device intakes.
  • Simple and quick installation in all standard racks or cabinets.
  • TAA and BAA compliant.


  • Reduces the chance of network switches overheating by directing cool air to device intakes.
  • Reduces the likelihood of premature equipment failure due to high intake temperatures.
  • Improves equipment efficiency by providing network equipment with the same cold aisle air temperature as other devices in the rack.
  • Decreases wraparound hot airflow from the hot aisle to the cold aisle due to missing blanking panels.
  • Standard three-year warranty, upgraded to five years with product registration.
