Acoustic Cabinets – Soundproof Server Cabinets are a cost-effective solution to host IT devices in environments like retail stores, offices or hallways and receptions.

Noise from active IT equipment in a high-technology workspace or public area can increase stress, decrease productivity and impact profits. However, sometimes locating noisy network equipment near workers or visitors is unavoidable. Cost or space constraints may prohibit building and maintaining a separate server room. In situations like these, keeping the sound to a minimum can greatly improve the working environment for optimum comfort, safety and productivity.

1. Reduce environmental noise levels by 15 to 31dBA
Foam-lined soundproof server cabinets can reduce audible server and hardware noise by 15 dB to the same level as typical office background sounds. The best soundproof server cabinets can reduce noise by an incredible 31 dBA— making noisy equipment whisper-quiet. Soundproof server cabinets with this superior level of attenuation are lined with heavy-duty, multilayer composite on all inside surfaces.

2. Achieve ideal server room temperature with perfect internal heat control
One of the key features of acoustic cabinets is to protect expensive servers, network switches, UPS and other pieces of IT equipment, with a cleverly designed cooling system. Choose a soundproof server cabinet that can handle the required heat output and use AlertWerks temperature monitoring sensors to ensure maximum energy efficiency.

As with all soundproof enclosures, the performance of the Acoustic cabinet range relies upon the ingenuity of the enclosure design and the acoustic material used to remove as much noise emittance from the enclosed sound sources as possible. Noise is measured in decibels (dBA), where the attenuation, indicates the amount of noise that is removed from the sound source. Example: From a sound source with 69dBA noise load (equivalent to a vacuum cleaner at 3m), a 31dBA attention would reduce the audibility to 38 dBA (Equivalent to soft speech). The audibility in an office environment can rank anywhere from 48 dBA (average office without talk) to 78dBA (busy office with talk). So, a soundproof cabinet with 31 dBA attenuation can reduce the noise to whisper-level.
