We’ve all read those articles or seen those nightmare photos
of racks and cabinets being so overwhelmed with cables that it’s nearly
impossible to tell where one cable ends and another begins. It can be so
overloaded with cable managers that you have little or no room for other
products or devices. While we love cable managers and don’t want to shy away
from using them, we also don’t want them to dominate the rack. But what if
there was a rack that took care of all of this? What if it provided the base
structure/support of a rack with the functionality of cable managers?
Well there is! The Cable Cove Rack was designed for just
such an occasion! It’s a reliable 2-post rack that provides ample space for
trunk cabling. With this rack, the cables won’t just carelessly hang to the
floor and hide your equipment – instead the cables will neatly feed down the
side of your rack and be well kept. And what about those excess cable managers?
Nonexistent with this rack! This rack eliminates the need for vertical cable
managers because the side frames act as a vertical cable manager. So instead of
having cable managers installed from the top to the bottom of your rack, and
most likely using up valuable space next to the rack, the Cable Cove routes
cables to their proper connection points in an organized fashion. Saving space
next to your rack is especially useful when ganging multiple racks together.
You will no longer have cable managers separating your racks – you can in fact install
these racks right next to each other!
But space isn’t all the Cable Cove saves you! It saves you
some green too! By installing this “all
in one” rack solution you are cutting down on the amount of cable managers you
need, therefore cutting your overall cost. Talk about a cost-efficient
solution! (I bet you didn’t realize you could save dough AND save yourself from
the hellish nightmare of tangled cables. Well, you can!)
Just in case we haven’t completely sold you on this rack based
on its dual-purpose and cost savings, here’s a little more to chew on. Yes, this
rack solution will help you cut costs, but that certainly doesn’t mean we’ve
cut the level of quality. Quite the opposite in fact! The Cable Cove Rack was
built with a robust, heavy duty design so it can handle any network, large or
small. Don’t be afraid to load it up with servers, UPS’s, rack shelves, patch
panels, switches, and more! This rack is ready for the challenge!
Go ahead and save yourself the agony of a disheveled rack by
installing the Cable Cove Rack and keeping your cables well maintained. Here at
Kendall Howard, we don’t like a messy room and we certainly can’t stand a messy
rack…so solve this problem before it starts!
