Space-Saving Solutions for Small to Mid-Sized Retail Stores

February 07, 2017

IT Solutions for Retail BusinessesWith displays, products and space for foot traffic taking up most of the square footage, small and mid-sized retail shops may struggle to store IT equipment away from the eyes of consumers. Often, a small closet or office must serve multiple purposes including storing sensitive communication, security and building automation equipment. This can lead to disorganized and damaged cabling.

Chatsworth Products’ (CPI) enterprise networking solutions can benefit retail businesses by:

  • Creating easy access to cables and routers
  • Saving floor space
  • Providing protection, organization and support for cabling and equipment
  • Offering a range of product dimensions

In smaller sites with less networking equipment, such as an office or shared closet space, the CUBE-iT PLUS® Wall-Mount Cabinet is ideal for securing equipment.

On the other hand, if a site has a dedicated equipment room for consolidating networking, phone, inventory control and security equipment into a single space, consider these core products:

Standard Two-Post Rack

  • Features a small footprint to save floor space
  • Ships unassembled in a single carton; easy bolt-together assembly takes less than 10 minutes
  • Supports up to 1000 lb of 19” EIA rack-mount equipment such as patch panels and network switches
  • Includes integrated grounding with a built-in attachment point for a ground (earthing) connection

Motive™ Cable Management System

  • Features a centralized track system, providing unlimited adjustment anywhere within the cable manager, providing more direct cable runs
  • Cables are managed and supported precisely where needed
  • Offers a set of tool-less cable management accessories to optimize use of interior space
  • Cable capacity of Cat 6a cables (using 50 percent fill) is 155-394

Power Strips

  • Distribute single-phase power to multiple pieces of equipment from a single power connection
  • Available in basic and metered configurations
  • Vertical or horizontal rack-mount power strips match the voltage and current rating of the power connection
  • Include thermal circuit breakers to protect circuits from overload

Adjustable Cable Runway

  • Creates a flexible point-to-point pathway for network cabling where cabling enters or exits the pathway
  • Movable Cross Members provide ultimate cable pathway customization to simplify alignment of cabling above racks, cabinets and cable managers
  • Tool-less accessories promote quick and easy deployment
  • Load rating of 132 lb/ft (196 kg/m) when the runway is supported every 5 ft (1.5 m)

Take advantage of this solution, and make your IT equipment as organized and attractive as your retail space.
