climate control damper ?
Explanation:
The URL below is the only one that come up on a search for Klimaschott/Klimaschieber. According to that description, the AC unit is placed outside the computer room and connected only via 2 Klimaschieber. So your "damper" might work (but I'd use climate control, not ventilation in this context).
A Schott is a bulkhead, something that can be hermetically sealed.


Schieber, Absperrschieber m (allg) / slide o. sliding valve, gate [valve], slide gate

Hope this gives you a few ideas to work with.
