With so many new brands entering the computer and networking markets, it's hard to find a single way to organize everything. The decision often comes down to purchasing multiple storage and mounting racks of different sizes or figuring out how to arrange a room for the best use of space. Instead of looking for existing solutions to cobble together into an expensive framework, consider a few ways that a precision sheet metal manufacturing team can create customized storage and management equipment for you.
Rack And Tray Systems
One of the more troublesome obstacles of hardware installation is getting different equipment sizes into the same area. You may have two devices that work perfectly with each other from two different brands, but if you're unable to mount them in the same area, you may need to use a lot of cabling and do a lot of walking in order to physically manage the devices.
Some devices are too small to be bolted safely onto wide server racks, while others are too large or oddly shaped to fit into the rack. A precision sheet metal fabrication team can help by creating custom storage racks and access trays to get around the odd size differences.
First, the fabrication experts can design a rack that accommodates the largest and most oddly shaped devices in your collection. From there, the team can install trays with adjustable borders that can clamp onto the devices as needed to create a secure fit. Instead of having to bolt everything in place, you can simply tighten the grip of the tray.
If a tightened grip isn't enough, cases can be installed for your devices. These cases can fit onto custom trays to provide a snug fit and are bolted to the server rack, acting as an adapter of sorts to keep your devices safe. Holes can be designed for cable management on the back of the cage depending on the device design.
Safety And Security Cages
Continuing with cage design, a sheet metal fabrication team can create security measures to keep would-be data thieves from stealing and sabotaging your information. Anti-viruses and information security practices can only do so much; if someone can access the device physically, all of your digital security can be made useless.
Precision sheet metal-cutting techniques can be used to trace and cut specific ports in size and shape that allows cables to enter when needed. Without lock and key access (or other security measures), it becomes extremely difficult for an infiltrator to remove a cable without the cable becoming stuck.
Sheet metal professionals may need an exact model of the devices in question in order to cut the perfect fit for optimum security. If you want to plan a secure, organized and precise storage system for your computer and networking devices, contact a sheet metal fabrication team.Share
