All About Hammond: Desktop Racks, A/V Cabinets, NEMA Wall Mounts, and More!
We’re back this week with another manufacturer spotlight! We know you’ve been waiting all week for this. The anticipation has been building since last week’s spotlight on Kendall Howard. Who could it be this time?! Well, if you read the title then you already knew. We’re spotlighting Hammond this week!
Rackmount Solutions is an authorized distributor of Hammond products. We have been working with them for a few years now. Although this is a shorter amount of time than some of our other partners, our relationship is growing more and more every day. Hammond is proving to be an increasingly important partner! Their products are a great blend of quality and affordability, and they have many unique solutions that have helped us create a more comprehensive offering to our customers. Additionally, we work with Hammond on custom projects for our clients as well.
More About Hammond
Hammond has 80 years of experience in manufacturing and over 100 years in business. Based in Canada, Hammond is a global company and has customers all over the world. Their continuous innovation over the past 100 years has made them one of the best producers of server racks and cabinets, electrical enclosures, power strips, transformers, and chokes. Not only do they produce all of these products, but they also serve a variety of industries such as, networking and telecommunications, audio and video, security, and testing.
Hammond’s A/V Cabinets are a very economically priced solution. These secured enclosures are available in 18U, 27U, and 42U heights and have a 21-inch usable depth. Each unit comes preinstalled with a number of vented shelves, as well as 2U filler panels for airflow. These cabinets also come with both leveling feet and rack casters. A/V enclosures do not come with fans, but there are provisions if you want to add them on. Removable, locking side panels and an aesthetically pleasing light-smoked tempered glass front door are also two great features. These data racks can hold up to 950 pounds, which is sure to hold your valuable Audio Visual equipment.
The NEMA Rated Swing-Out Wall Mount Cabinets are built to withstand the toughest of environments. You may remember our previous blog post about NEMA Cabinets, and these Hammond wall mounts are no different. These data center wall mounts comply with NEMA type 3R, 4, and 12 ratings for use in harsh environments. Additionally, there are filtered fan systems available as an accessory for when cabinet is going outdoors or into a dirtier environment. These NEMA Wall Mounts come available with either a solid front door, or a window door, which is made of UV resistant polycarbonate, and a swing out rear provides access to the back of the equipment.
These Desktop Racks from Hammond are another economically priced solution for when equipment needs to be kept on a desktop or in arm’s reach. These free standing desktop racks are available in many sizes that are anywhere from 2U to 8U, and from 12.38 inch depth to 23.88 inch depth. If you need to move the rack there are lifting handles on each side for easy relocation. This desktop cabinet also comes in either black or light grey, and it comes with rubber feet and rack mount hardware. What is extra cool about this rack is that it has been tested to nearly double the suggested load rating of 600 pounds. So, you know that it is strong.
We highly recommend these Hammond products and many more.
