Sealing cables around ceiling tiles

Sealing cables around ceiling tiles

Hi, newly setup server closet, it's vented with a bathroom type continuous rated ceiling vent in the tiles. Where the wiring comes through the ceiling tiles there's some openings. To get air to pull from vents in bottom of server close door better, what do you suggest to seal between the cabling and ceiling tiles. It was suggested to use fiberglass installation, but I detest working around/with fiberglass. Any other safe material to close/seal these gaps? smile

You could use spray foam in a can such as "great stuff" - available at most big box stores. Wear eye protection and latex gloves as this stuff sticks to anything.
