Server Racks and Enclosures, Computer Cabinets,
LAN Stations, and Security Lockboxes

Racks vs. Enclosures

All enclosures contain racks, but not all racks have enclosures. A rack is simply the framework upon which the equipment is mounted. Enclosures are racks fitted with side panels and front and rear doors.

Advantages of Open Racks

Open racks are more affordable, provide easier access to equipment for maintenance, and are easier to keep cool. If you choose an open rack, be sure to keep your server room secure to prevent possible intrusion and vandalism.

Advantages of Enclosures

The most poignant advantage of the network enclosure is security. Virtually all modern floor, wall, and ceiling enclosures feature keyed entry, locking out unauthorized personnel to prevent tampering. Side panels and doors are constructed of heavy cold rolled steel to prevent impact damage. For heat sensitive or otherwise critical equipment, we offer thermal enclosures.

Mounting Options

Floor mounting will bring the highest level of efficiency when it comes to installing servers and other pieces of network equipment. Because of very high load capacities, floor enclosures will generally be able to handle anything you need to install up to its space capacity. Wall enclosures are often used to isolate certain groups of related equipment for more convenient access. Wall mounting is also a great solution for preventing auxiliary equipment from taking up too much precious real estate in your floor enclosure.
