Lets talk Server Racks

Author: Brad   Date Posted:18 November 2019 

Whether you’re an I.T installer, AV installer or just want to tidy up your home office, Titan AV have a wide range of server racks from wall mounted to floor standing.

 

No place like home

With the ever-growing need for digital media in our lives things can get messy.  Cables everywhere, routers and modems, backup hard drives, server computers.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have a place to store all of that?

Many of us now have a home office, or at least a corner of a room that we have our back up hard drives, printers, internet modems, routers, switches and sometimes even patch panels.  With a wall mounted server rack we can get all of that mess up off the desk and put away in a tidy and professional looking solution.

All of our Titan AV server racks have a smart looking powder coated finish with a tempered glass lockable door.  Perfect if you want to turn the internet modem off at night and lock it so that kids can’t get to it.

 

The office

Multiple computers in the office = a lot of networking equipment.  Hubs, access points and switches, bridges and routers, print servers and files servers, we’re going to need a place to store all of that.

Depending on your needs you might find a 4RU 300m deep wall mounted rack will be perfect for a home or small business setup or perhaps a massive 42RU floor standing rack if you’re setting up for a medium to large business.

 

The technicals (thats a real word, right?)

Supplied fully assembled and made out of cold pressed steel, Titan AV server cabinets are strong, durable and secure.  Tempered glass and a lockable door with two keys included.  Powder coated black to look sleek and professional.  All of our server racks comply with ANSI/EIA RS-310-D. ETSI standard.

Selected models come with shelves and fans fitted and exterior slots to assist with cable management.

Floor standing server cabinets

Titan AV floor standing server cabinets are perfect for users who need something with a little bit more space or need that option to be able to move around the room.  With two different styles, open rack and enclosed.

Open rack – is exactly what it sounds like.  With no sides or doors these are the perfect option for equipment that needs a bit more airflow, like audio amplifiers.  Open rack is also a more affordable option for those who want a simple, not over the top solution just to house or tidy up your I.T or audio equipment.  Ranging in sizes from 8RU to 42RU, all with adjustible depth from 410-510mm. All Titan AV open rack server cabinets come supplied with caster wheels (2 with brakes, 2 without brakes).  These are perfect for domestic and commercial application.

Enclosed - ideal for server rooms or free standing in offices.
