GizMac adds air filtration
GizMac Accessories on Thursday said it is now shipping the smaller capacities of XRackPro server racks with air filtration. The 4U and 6U models of XRackPro2 server racks, made of heavy duty steel construction and a sealed glass front door, now feature an air filtration system in addition to reducing noise: the air filtration provides cleaner air into the server rack enclosure and ultimately into computer and other electronic equipment located inside, GizMac noted. The controlled airflow of the XRackPro2 server rack aids cooling, improves noise reduction and allows for an air filtering system to function.
The air filters used in the XRackPro2 computer racks are custom made and feature a pleated design for greater surface area to trap more particles while allowing maximum air circulation. According to the company, the custom air filters are reinforced with a metal grid to prevent collapsing due to the high airflow volume created by the XRackPro rack cooling fans.
"Our smaller server racks may be two of the best values on the market for a limited amount of equipment," said Ken Vitto, Director of Marketing for GizMac Accessories. "With noise reduction, key lockable doors and now air filtration standard, 4U and 6U XRackPro2 server racks have a lot to offer."
The rackmount enclosures are designed for use in a variety of noise-sensitive environments, including post-production facilities for film, video and audio editing; television, cable and radio broadcasting stations; business and medical offices, and schools as well as environments with higher than usual levels of dust and other air born particulates.
Available in both platinum or black, XRackPro2 4U and 6U server rack models with the new air filtration system are available now in the U.S. for $550 and $750, respectively.
