“The ISO-Base System provides an elegantly simple solution to a complex problem” – Degenkolb Engineers
Original ISO-Base™ Platforms
ISO-Base™ platforms are in use throughout the world protecting valuable IT Equipment. Its unique modular and patented plank design, allows the build-out of sleek low-profile rows for isolating all types server racks and IT equipment, in varying sizes and weights.
The open “C” channel in the front and back of the plank design allows the user to move or change out equipment easily, and as needed. ISO-Base platforms can be installed in a “live” computer room since there is no drilling or anchoring required. The platform rows can be built-out with equipment rolled into position using ramps, or the racks can be hydraulically lifted straight up (about 5 inches), to allow the build-out of the platform, then lowered onto the platform.
The original platforms feature a plank design with (2) bearing sets and in two widths. The 10.75” wide planks are traditionally used at the end of rows for a more concise fit. The 12.75” wide planks are used when two cabinets are sharing a plank in the middle of the built-out row.
Extra Wide ISO-Base™ Platforms
To accommodate equipment with unique footprints, two additional width planks are available, 14.75” and 15.75”. These wider width planks can be used in a mixed row of other width planks via the same “C” channel connectivity where more area is required to properly place the cabinets on a shared plank.
Heavy-Duty ISO-Base™ Platforms
Server racks and IT equipment has trended heavier in recent years, so to accommodate the increased weights, we offer Heavy-Duty ISO-Base™ planks with an additional bearing set to spread the weight load over more area. These heavy-duty planks are available in all widths and can be integrated into rows with other planks where needed.
ISO-Base™ Options and Accessories
ISO-Base planks are available with three surface / liner options.
1). Stainless Steel Surface
For free-rolling action on medium weight equipment where no extra damping is required
2). Polyurethane Liner Bonded to Stainless Steel Surface
For light weight equipment or stand-alone cabinets that require damping to reduce displacement and input accelerations
3). QuakeCoat™ Elastomeric Damping Liner
For today’s heavier IT equipment to provide maximum damping. Patent pending QuakeCoat™ ensures the isolator achieves the maximum displacement capacity, under extreme weight loads, without degradation
The ISO-Base system has available accessories such as ramps, and staging platforms, for loading on and off of built-out platform rows.
