Racks Stand Up to Earthquakes and Rugged Conditions

The recent disaster in Japan was a vivid reminder for companies to consider how well their equipment would be protected if such an event took place locally. Whether you house your equipment in an earthquake-prone area or want added protection for servers in rugged environments, Rackmount Solutions’ Seismic NEBS Zone 4 Server Rack fits the bill.

Solidly built of heavy-duty American steel and designed to withstand rigorous conditions, these server racks are NEBS-compliant. They are also certified compliant with Telcordia Bellcore GR-63-CORE requirements for zone 4 seismic environments.

Rackmount’s seismic server rack is based on the standard, patented frame design of the RS, RSP and FRS server rack series used in telecom, network and IT environments. It is well suited to any rugged environment in which you require your equipment to resist shock, bending and vibration.

Some key highlights of the racks include the following:

  • The rack is available either as a fully enclosed seismic rack, which provides a cabinet depth of 36 inches of usable space and 27 inches between the front and rear rackrails, or an open rack that is available in four different depths.
  • The steel side panels are externally removable, and the steel perforated doors feature lockable swing handles, corner gussets and three-way catches. The rack also features a heavy-duty solid tap panel.
  • The rack includes two sets of L-shaped, adjustable 10-32 tapped vertical mounting rails that are centered in the frame.
  • The racks are compatible with most accessories, and the rack bases are easily bolted down, if desired.
  • No assembly is required.
  • Racks are available in numerous colors.
