    39 degrees, In most of the IT labs in school, server room is fine providing our air-con unit doesnt freeze up again and leak all over the UPS again! this is rediculous, what are the health and safety requirments for ambient tempreture for work?

    Ahhhh sweet relief. I've had a portable unit in here for a year or so, horribly noisy and underspecced ( 8,000 BTU ) but it gets the temperature down. Finally got permission to leave it on overnight (normally have to close and lock the windows) and the temperature this morning is a positively comfortable 20.6c/23c by the servers. This compared to 32c when I opened the door on Monday morning....

    Sadly, the upper limit isn't a specified number, just "a comfortable temperature". The HSE have a decent FAQ page on it.

    http://www.hse.gov.uk/contact/faqs/temperature.htm

    There's a more detailed guide here - http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg244.pdf

    Ballpark figures suggested by other professional organisations seem to be around 28-30c maximum, but that doesn't take into account the health of your servers...

    The site manager is threatening to take the portable unit out of the server room because "people are more important than computers" 8O

    Kick him in the crotch and run!

    Or you could explain to him and senior management about how much critical data could be lost should that happen!

    If they don't listen and take it, the next day it's hot, switch off the servers, and say they overheated...

    Is cooler today being overcast and thunder storms!
