Thursday Jul 30th, 2020

Building data racks and mounting 19” equipment can be a logistical nightmare when products ship from multiple manufacturers on different days. Boxes are misplaced. Boxes are thrown out. Some parts don’t show up. It’s a nightmare that doesn’t happen with STACK integration services from Great Lakes.

Cool Services: Best Practices

Wednesday Jun 17th, 2020

The segregation of hot and cold air inside the cabinet has been identified as the first step in achieving energy efficiency. Creating segregation and eliminating bypass airflow is obtained through installing basic accessories (filler panels, brush grommet, floor grommets) in a cabinet--the industry calls it "best practices". We can help with the install of filler panels, brush grommet and more--and we'll do it an no charge!
