CHICAGO, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Lite, a world leader of manufacturing power protection equipment, introduces its new SmartRack Enclosures, a series of high-quality, free-standing rack cabinets that organize and secure rackmount server and networking equipment. SmartRacks are up to 4 units (4U) taller and have the smallest footprint of any competitive model, allowing storage of more equipment in space-limited environments. Heavy duty casters allow easy relocation of the SmartRack through standard 7-foot doors. In addition, SmartRacks accommodate up to 1,000 lbs. of equipment, almost 300 lbs. more than competitive models. Built-in, retractable stabilizers prevent tipping when moving or sliding out equipment. SmartRacks' ventilated enclosures allow the most air-flow of any cabinet in the industry, keeping equipment cooler and preventing overheating. They provide cable access through the back, top and bottom of the enclosures, providing more accessibility and cable management options while eliminating the need for raised computer floors, a feature required to use many competitive enclosure systems. SmartRacks offer a single purchase solution to organize and secure mission-critical equipment. Unlike competitors, Tripp Lite reduces the cost of securing networking equipment and eliminates shop-around time by including features such as doors and side panels as standard features. In addition, SmartRacks include side panels with easy-release finger latches to supply quick access to stored equipment, as well as locking front, rear and side panels for extra security. SmartRacks expand to accommodate growing systems. Simply release the finger latches, remove the side panels from the existing SmartRack and connect the optional expansion enclosures with the included baying hardware. SmartRacks allow unlimited expansion capabilities. SmartRacks exceed the third party requirements of all leading OEM's including Compaq, IBM, Dell, HP, Digital, ALR, NEC and others, yielding complete compatibility with users' systems. Additional SmartRack accessories include fixed, sliding and keyboard/mouse shelves, blanking panels, server mounting rails, fans and more. SmartRack Enclosures are the only rack enclosures that include a 5-year product warranty.
