Seismic events continue to draw attention on a global scale,
acting as a catalyst for ever-increasing building codes and certifications. Preparing for the next seismic event is especially important for data centers that cannot afford to
be offline or are not backed up at a secondary location. To reduce risk and
minimize equipment damage, seismic protection is necessary.
Chatsworth Products offers a variety of products to help protect critical equipment from damage during a seismic event. The Z4-Series SeismicFrame® Cabinet improves on CPI’s original Seismic Frame® Cabinet, which was introduced in 2001. The Z4-Series SeismicFrame Cabinet delivers a higher load rating, an increased range of cabinet sizes to support deeper equipment and more unobstructed interior space along the sides for thermal and cable management accessories.
Additionally, a variety of bracing kits are available for both cabinets and racks.

Secure and protect critical computer server, data storage and network equipment in computer rooms, equipment rooms and other facilities that are located in seismically active areas.
The Seismic Frame® Cabinet is rated Zone 4 compliant and is designed to withstand the seismic stress of an 8.3 Richter scale earthquake.
Attach bracing kit to cabinet top panel where there is a risk of seismic activity. Earthquake design criteria specify that equipment remain operational when subjected to earthquakes even though some small amount of repairablesecondary physical damage may occur.
The Seismic Equipment Bracket prevents back-and-forth, side-to-side and up-and-down movement of shelf-mounted equipment by bracing the equipment's chassis to the cabinet's vertical mounting rails.
