Anthro Introduces New Rack
Anthro Corporation, the Tualatin, Oregon based manufacturer of furniture for technology, introduces the new Anthro Rack System. The new Rack System is designed to accommodate a number of rack equipment applications with nine different size models; three different unit sizes: 12 Unit, 24 Unit and 36 Unit; combined with three different depths: 24", 30" and 36" deep.
The Anthro Rack System has a floating frame and modular rack mount angles to create a hybrid rack configuration by holding equipment of various depths and mounting standards. The rack mount angles can be attached at different depths in one Rack. Various brands of equipment with unlike rack mounting standards can also be mixed in a single Rack. For example, a Rack could be configured to hold 4U of Dell standard at 36" deep, 4U of EIA standard at 32" deep and 4U of EIA standard at 28"deep. The floating frame system and modular rack mount angles can be assembled into hundreds of possible configurations.
Equipment can be rack-mounted with screws in the tapped rails attached to the front and back of the rack for equipment that needs both. The sides, top and bottom are not part of the Rack structure, so when removed, they allow complete access to equipment. The Rack System can also be configured with no rack, and serve as a locked cabinet. This application is common for storing tower servers.
The Rack System provides convenient access to cables and protects cables. It has removable side panels which enclose a large space on each side for cable management. Routing and storing the cables on the sides of the Rack keeps them out of the way of connectors and controls toward the back of the Rack.
The Rack System comes standard with a top and bottom metal shelf, Side Panels and adjustable glides. Accessories to customize the Rack include 3 sizes of lockable Doors and Back Panels, various sizes and standards of Rack Mount Angles, and cable management options. Other accessories include Casters, Fixed Shelves, Pull-Out Shelves, Drawers, Handles and a rack-mountable Keyboard Shelf. The Rack System comes with a Lifetime Warranty against manufacturers defects.
Anthro Corporation was founded in 1984 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Tektronix. Anthro became an independent company in April 1988. Anthro sells computer furniture direct to the business, engineering, medical, government, education and home markets.
