Z-4 Series SeismicFrame® Cabinet Meets Seismic and Efficiency Standards
April 15, 2015
Chatsworth Products’ (CPI) Z4-Series SeismicFrame® Cabinet System is engineered and tested to maintain functionality even after the most severe earthquakes. The best benefit is that it can be fully integrated into an aisle containment strategy. This means the cabinet meets two building codes requirements.
The benefits of airflow containment in data centers have been increasingly acknowledged by state and federal governments as a way to mitigate energy consumption in one of the most energy-consuming environments.
Known for its strict regulations, California has implemented its Title 24 energy efficiency standards from the California Code of Regulations. Specific requirements for new and retrofit computer rooms and data centers include the use of containment in new large, high-density density data centers.
Building a data center in California is even more challenging because it is also in a highly seismic area. Seismic areas require specific building codes and installation requirements for public buildings to ensure the safety of people and equipment. Seismic products that will be installed in these buildings must also comply with stringent guidelines.
Key features of the Z-4 Series include:
- Industry-leading seismic load rating of 1500 lbs
- Increased range of cabinet sizes to support deeper equipment and more unobstructed interior space along the sides for thermal and cable management accessories.
- OSHPD Pre-Approved and tested by a Telecommunications Carrier Group and ISO 17025 certified Independent Testing Laboratory (ITL) to meet the latest Telcordia Technologies GR-63-CORE requirements.
