Siemon has announced that its cabinet solutions and accessories are now available in white and light gray, improving visibility and delivering a clean, modern look for today’s data centers and telecommunications spaces.

In addition to existing black (RAL 9011), Siemon’s VersaPOD®, V800™, V600™ and Wall-Mount Cabinets are now available in white (RAL 9003) and light gray (RAL 7035), with white stocked for the Americas and light gray stocked 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. 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.

Lighter colored cabinets are becoming a trend in data centers due to their clean, modern look. They also reflect up to 75% 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 well into surrounding décor.

Siemon’s VersaPOD cabinets leverage the vertical space between cabinets and at the end of row for zero-U patching, cable management and power distribution, reducing stranded power outlets by 75 percent and resulting in 46 percent savings. The V800 cabinet is ideal for high-density data center environments, while the V600 is a versatile, cost-effective cabinet prefect for housing servers. Siemon’s feature-rich wall-mount cabinet saves valuable floor space and is ideal as a mini telecomm room or for remote network distribution and consolidation points in open, unprotected spaces. All of Siemon’s cabinets are also available as V-Built™ preconfigured cabinets that come preloaded with Siemon components, including connectivity, PDUs, cable management, and accessories to meet specific applications and configurations.
