Atlas Sound 700 Series racks gain seismic certification
LAS VEGAS, NV, June 18, 2008—Atlas Sound will take the wraps off its new seismic-certified 700 Series racks at this year's InfoComm in Las Vegas (booth #C4049), when it debuts earthquake-ready versions of the popular 35RU - 44RU line of floor enclosures now fully compliant with NEBS (Network Equipment Building System) guidelines.
Conducted on a shaker table, dynamic tests leading to the seismic certification of the 700 Series replicated the full-force rattle and roll of an actual Zone 4 earthquake, which is comparable to an 8.0 on the Richter scale. In-stock and available now fitted with the new SBK700 brackets, the seismic-ready product group includes 25-inch deep models 735-25, 740-25, and 744-25, as well as models 744-30 and 744-36, which are 30 and 36 inches deep respectively.
Ideally suited for use in seismic zones across the country, the new certified racks are built for single and multiple bay applications requiring added weight capacity and depths extending to 36 inches. Utilizing heavy 14-gauge frame construction, each seismic-ready 700 Series enclosure features multi-formed and welded frame members, double-formed front and rear sections, and vertical columns that interlock with both the cabinet top and base to provide higher load bearing strength. Mounting rail channel support members are multi-formed for added interlocking support as well, while corner caster gussets are reinforced with 11-gauge CRS tube.
