Racks Serve Multiple Applications, Provide Quick and Easy Installation and Integrated Grounding and Bonding
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. - February 2007 - Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI), a leading manufacturer sets the benchmark by providing superior structural support to organize, store and secure IT infrastructure equipment offers the new Adjustable ServerRack and Adjustable QuadraRack™
that serves multiple applications, allows for quick and easy installation and provides integrated grounding and bonding features.
Available in four heights and four depth range options, the Adjustable ServerRack and QuadraRack have the ability to serve multiple storage applications. In order to match equipment mounting requirements the racks front-to-rear mounting channels can be adjusted in .98" (25 mm) increments, up to 5.91" (150 mm) for each depth range, with an overall depth adjustment range from 15.75" (400 mm) to 42.32" (1075 mm) during assembly. Each RMU is marked and numbered on the mounting channels, making it easy to locate and position equipment. A second set of holes along the sides of the mounting channels permit the addition of optional side-mounted Equipment Support Rails which use no additional RMU space. Once assembled, mounting channels on the Adjustable ServerRack and QuadraRack are fixed in place to securely surround and protect equipment.

The average assembly time is only 20 minutes and involves four brackets to connect the front and rear corners of the rack. Designed with eight mounting studs the Adjustable ServerRack and QuadraRack requires just eight nuts and 12 bolts to complete assembly.
CPI's Adjustable ServerRack and QuadraRack also contain integrated grounding and bonding features including a Two Mounting Hole Ground Terminal Block and Antioxidant Joint Compound to connect the rack to the Telecommunications Grounding Busbar. Rack components are bonded together during assembly and have two masked ground attachment points.
