Original designer and manufacturer Rainford Solutions has provided enclosures to the telecommunications market for over 30 years.
A long standing customer that is a leading optical transport DWDM manufacturer approached us to develop a solution for their Asian and North American markets where earthquakes are a concern.
The result is a new product range, the Vanquish® S-Series. Designed for deployment in communication facilities, data centres and computer equipment rooms that are located in high active seismic areas, the cabinets protect ICT infrastructure such as network, server, compute, storage and telephony equipment.
Seismic cabinets / earthquake proof cabinets provide survivability for sensitive equipment in NEBS Zone 4 areas where earthquakes can put systems at risk.
Areas of high seismic activity prone to earthquakes include: Japan, Nepal, India, Ecuador, Philippines, Pakistan, El Salvador, Mexico, Turkey, Indonesia, Thailand, Italy, Portugal and Greece.
