Hoffman's New Net Series Cabinets Offer Economical Protection and Flexibility

Configured Cabinets Ready for Immediate Installation

Anoka, MN - September 18, 2006 - Hoffman introduces Net Series, communication and server cabinets designed to economically house 19- or 23-inch LAN, WAN, phone and voice mail rack equipment, and servers. These pre-configured cabinets and accompanying accessories are stocked for quick shipment and versatile enough to adapt to many different applications.

Constructed of heavy gauge steel, Net Series Cabinets not only protect network equipment from intrusion or impact but also from the effects of heat.

"We always consider today's data center thermal and cable management challenges when designing our cabinets," said Brian Mordick, RCDD, Hoffman's senior product manager for DataCom. "Communication cabinets are equipped with a fully perforated front and louvered rear door; server cabinets feature a fully perforated front and split rear perforated door to facilitate air movement. Both models also feature an open base for easy cable entry."

Net Series Cabinets are the first in a new family of economically priced, aesthetically superior cabinets that replace Hoffman's existing Networking Cabinets, at the same price level. Features include:
o Increased cabling space on side panels (one half inches on each side)
o New flush mounted locking handle on the front and back doors
o Thermal design that dissipates up to 2,500 watts of network equipment heat
o Improved welding
o High strength frame; 1,000lb load rating
o Common fasteners
o Quick shipment
Additional new models, which will replace other existing cabinets, will be added in the near future.

Net Series, NEMA Type 1, UL listed 1863 and RoHS compliant, meets third-party server cabinet requirements. The perforated front door and louvered rear door are in accordance with server manufacturers' open space requirements. The doors are easily removable for quick equipment installation and maintenance, have handles that do not protrude into the aisle and are equipped with a secure lock to limit cabinet access.
