Siemon recently announced that its cabinet solutions and accessories are now available in white and light gray, which the company says improves visibility and delivers a clean, modern look for data centers and telecommunications spaces.
In addition to the existing black color, Siemon’s VersaPOD, V800, V600 and Wall-Mount Cabinets are now available in white and light gray. Siemon stocks the white systems for the Americas and the light gray systems internationally. Cabinet accessories are also available in white and light gray “to ensure a seamless look throughout the cabinets, including VersaPOD zero-U and end-of-row panels, cable managers, blanking panels and PDU mounting brackets,” the company said. “Vertical patch panels, cable trays, cable managers and brush guards used with V800 and V600 cabinets also come in a white or gray, as well as common cabinet accessories like equipment shelves, filler panels, exhaust chimneys, lid dividers, casters and mounting rails.”
The company continued, “Light-colored cabinets are becoming a trend in data centers due to their clean, modern look. They also reflect up to 75 percent more light than black cabinets for overall improved visibility, making critical network connections and equipment easier to see in dim lighting conditions. With improved visibility, lighting energy within these networking spaces may be reduced for potential operational cost savings. Lighter-colored cabinets are also less prone to visible scratches, and they blend will into surrounding décor.”
Candace Abenbach, product manager for Siemon, added, “We are extremely pleased to round out our comprehensive cabinet offering with white and light gray color options. Not only does the expansion support increasing popularity for lighter-colored cabinets in data centers, but our lighter colored wall-mount cabinet is ideal for blending into the walls of classrooms, retail spaces or other similar environments.”
