Doors

Access doors are incorporated at the front and rear of the cabinet to provide access to all internal equipment and cables. Each door, opens 110 degrees and is held open by a mechanism.

Gland Plates

Gland plates are designed to provide sufficient pressure around the perimeter seal of the gland plate to prevent water ingress.

Drain Holes

Drain holes are provided in the bottom corners and where water could be dammed by framing members.

Door compression seals provide a durable waterproof seal against a flat surface. The seal is UV stabilised and maintains its elasticity and memory over the life of the cabinet in its normal operating environment.

Doors can be hinged with concealed hinges on the left hand side for single cabinets. For double cabinets, the left cabinet is hinged on the left side and the right cabinet on the right side. A three point latching mechanism is provided as standard with a 316 stainless steel flush mounting handle incorporating a Half Euro Profile locking cylinder and dust cover. Other lock options are available.

The vertical frame of the racking is segmented to allow mounting of 19 inch (482.6 mm) and Euro metric 21 inch (533.4 mm) equipment at alternating segments. Each segment is 10 standard rack units (10RU). Double cabinets have the racking system duplicated for
both left and right cabinets. A minimum equipment mounting depth of 480 mm is provided between the front and back of the rack. The racking system is also supplied with a relocatable shelf and a relocatable sliding shelf with a 50kg load rating.
