Seismic Protection Systems

Z4-Series SeismicFrame Cabinet - Z4-11U-113C-C12P_RIGHT_RGB72.jpgSeismic Protection Systems provide additional bracing required in earthquake zones to reduce the risk of equipment damage from seismic events. CPI can help you protect your equipment during the seismic stress of an 8.3 Richter scale earthquake.

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 Seismic Frame® 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.

Benefits include:

  • Reduces risk of equipment damage due to seismic events
  • Minimizes excessive motion that may cause undue strain on cable connections
  • Increases chance of continued operations after seismic event
  • Helps installations meet seismic codes
