Middle Atlantic Hinged Plexiglass Security Doors: Tamper-Free Visibility for Critical Server Equipment

middle-atlantic-hinged-plexiglass-doorsYou know that scene in Ocean’s Eleven where one of the Utah twins (can’t remember if it was Scott Caan or Casey Affleck) manages to get into the casino’s “secure” data center, mess with a patch cord or two, and gain access to the surveillance video feed? First, you’ve gotta love that they worked a little server room tampering into the plot, and secondly, why the heck wasn’t that equipment locked up better? Didn’t Terry Benedict and his security staff know there was at least some chance that several of Hollywood’s best-looking, lovable scoundrels would stop by to rob them blind on fight night?

Apparently not, or they would have gotten their Bellagio-monogrammed mitts on at least a few of Middle Atlantic’s Hinged Plexiglass Security doors.

These rackmount security doors are made in 2, 3, 4, and 8U heights, come complete with pre-installed keyed locks, and bolt onto just about any standard 19″ server rack, so you can protect just one or two components, or a whole group of them. The doors are fantastic because they keep your equipment perfectly visible, but limit access to only trusted keyholders. Those prowling, sticky-fingered, up-to-no-good types may be able to see your telecom equipment, but won’t be able to actually sabotage it. Perfect.

Now that we’ve covered the basic idea, on to the specs. The security doors are framed in 16-gauge steel to stay strong, and have a tough black powder coat finish that resists scratching and matches well with pretty much any rack. They also have a stand-out depth of 1½ inches, so they give plenty of clearance for controls, cable connectors and the like.

And did I mention that they’re almost as easy on the eyes as certain Ocean’s cast members? Almost.
