CPI'S Award-Winning MegaFrame® Now Available in a Narrow Footprint



GEORGETOWN, TX - Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI), a 100% employee-owned leading manufacturer of structural support systems for technology equipment, announces a narrow footprint addition to the industry-acclaimed MegaFrame® family of cabinet solutions.

CPI is the industry leader in providing solutions for organizing, storing and securing electronic components used in the data and telecommunications industries, now adds the SlimFrameTM C-series cabinets to its product line. The SlimFrame C-series Cabinet provides unparalleled quality in the areas of design, construction, materials, and workmanship.

With the introduction of the SlimFrame addition, the MegaFrame is now available in a narrower footprint. Designed with CPI Style in mind, SlimFrame assures that mission critical hardware is safe and secure in a package conveniently corresponding to the standard raised floor tile width. Even without a raised floor environment, if space is at a premium and cable management is not an overriding issue, the SlimFrame supports requirements to stack more file servers per row of cabinets.

The SlimFrame cabinet system provides an ideal storage solution for EIA standard 19" rack-mountable equipment and is configurable to meet a wide variety of application requirements.

The cabinet can bay to any existing MegaFrame to meet the demand for data storage expansion. Multiple SlimFrame cabinets can easily bay together by selecting variations without side panels and using the included multi-bay attachment hardware kit. Bayed cabinets or frames can accommodate the patent-pending MegaFrame vertical cable management ring sections. Three depths are offered: 22", 30" and 36", as well as three height options: 84", 78", and 72". A variety of door styles are available to support different thermal management and security requirements. Standard quick-release doors make it easy to customize the cabinets for doors to open from either the right or left.

Made from 6061-T6 high-grade aluminum and 6063-T5 high strength aluminum extrusion, the SlimFrame C-Series Cabinet System delivers rugged durability and good looks in a lightweight, easy-to-handle package. A 1000 pound static load rating and 24" width equals more file servers per square foot of data center floor space.

The SlimFrame can be utilized as a standard four-post cabinet, or, as a two-channel rack by simply sliding the mounting rails together. To create an Open Mounting System, the basic frame without doors, side panels and top would be purchased.

A full range of accessories is available to complement and integrate with the SlimFrame C-series Cabinet System. Accessories include a fan kit, sliding shelves, caster set, and vertical mounting rails. Ships fully assembled.

The new SlimFrame C-series addresses issues of space limitations and cable management needs while simultaneously providing exceptional flexibility to accommodate changes as system requirements grow.
