Incredibly quiet, the new QuietCab Elite™ from Black Box reduces network equipment noise
to a level below background noise in an average office, or even to the level of a whisper. The cabinet, independently tested as the most effective quiet cabinet in the world, reduces sound
by an amazing 28.5 dB, the most available today in any soundproof enclosure.
Reducing the noise level in an office can lead to improved productivity and increased profits. Sound has been proven to cause stress, low morale, errors, and accidents. Even a simple 5 dB reduction in noise can actually cut the risk of hearing loss in half. Eliminate the noise and you’ll have safer, more productive workers.
Depending on the environment, the QuietCab Elite can reduce equipment sound to a whisper. The noise level in a busy office with people talking is 78 dB. Normal conversation is 60 dB. A whisper is 23 dB. If you are in a quiet office, the cabinet would sound like just a hum or whisper. You won’t hear the equipment unless you put your ear next to the cabinet.
The cabinet is not only quiet, it’s also very cool. An innovative airflow design along with two variable-speed fans connected to temperature sensors dissipate 7.2 kW of heat. That’s the equivalent of 37 single-processor servers and peripherals.
The 19" cabinet accommodates all leading servers, including blade servers, and is available in 12U, 24U, and 42U sizes. It’s built tough and can hold 1100 pounds of equipment. It’s also extremely versatile with adjustable M6 rails and a generous amount of cable management space. The cabinet also includes casters for easy portability. Locking front and rear doors secure equipment.
The cabinet is ideal for environments where network equipment needs to be stored near workers, such as small or open offices, schools, medical offices, retail establishments, and more. The cabinet offers secure storage while saving the cost of building a separate data or telecomm room.
