growing trends of wire server cages for data centers
A global distributor of communication and security products that works with large data centers and hosting facilities was providing their products to a data center that also needed physical security cages for their servers. Since wire server cages and partitions are able to provide physical security for data centers while providing ventilation, visibility, and compatibility with existing HVAC systems, they decided the wire cages would be the best solution for the job.
modular physical security solutions
Standard Style 840 wire partitions from Wirecrafters® were utilized in a server cage configuration to provide the required security. The standard 10 gauge wire woven in a 2″ x 1″ rectangular mesh with its angle frame panel design was bolted to 2″ square, 14 gauge tubular posts. The wire partition runs from floor to ceiling with a minimum sweep space at the floor, and a small opening across the top of the partitions. Sliding doors were installed on each caged area to allow access to the servers without taking up any valuable aisle space, since their space was already at a premium. The doors simply slide in front of the adjacent panel. Click here to view wire partitions and security cage videos.

Each sliding door is equipped with an electromagnetic lock that allows the data center personnel to wire a keypad or card reader to the door for additional controlled and authorized access. The posts for the wire server cages are bolted to a raised computer floor with a matching baseplate on the underside of the floor tile to provide a rigid and secure connection.
The modular design of the wire server cages allows them to expand as the needs of the customer grow and change. Although the standard wire partitions are able to be configured for a wide variety of applications, many other mesh sizes are also available, such as 3/4″ square and 1″ square openings for even higher levels of security.
