Environ Co-Location Racks

CL Racks have been designed specifically with co-location installations and applications that require enhanced levels of access security in mind.

Excel Networking Solutions - the copper and optical cabling infrastructure provider – has launched a new Environ floor standing rack into their existing portfolio of Networking Racks and Open Frames.

Based on the proven and popular ER series chassis, Excel’s CL series of multi-compartment floor standing racks are available in 42U or 47U heights, 600mm or 800mm wide, grey, white or black and a choice of 2 or 4 compartments. With this flexibility and with each compartment being created by the use of a full depth dividing panel, the CL Racks have been designed specifically with co-location installations and applications that require enhanced levels of access security in mind. As such, these racks are intended for use by facilities where rack space is being used by different enterprise departments or clients within a shared facility, such as data centres.

Similar to the existing rack portfolio, the CL Series are compatible with the full range of Environ Locking Solutions, enabling customers to choose from digital key code, proximity card or biometric locking configurations.

Neil Payne, Excel Product Manager, commented, “As with all Environ cabinets, racks and open frames, the Co-Location Series is driven by simplicity, performance and flexibility.”

Neil continued, “The racks are specifically designed with enhanced security in mind, with entry to the vertical cable management boxes separated from one compartment to another. What’s more, the racks come with unique keys for all doors and side panels as standard, and entry to each compartment is restricted to these access zones only to ensure complete protection of infrastructure.”

The CL Series racks feature in the new Environ catalogue and the Excel website. Tracey Calcutt, Marketing Manager at Excel, commented, “The CL Series is a fantastic addition to the Environ range of Networking Racks and Open Frames. The Environ catalogue has been designed to provide information at the part number level – we’ve included a useful product selector so you can see at a glance which rack is best for your requirement and there are plenty of close up photographs to see the features of each range.”

The CL Racks are now listed on the website, however they will be available to purchase from September 2017. For more information, please contact the Excel team by email at
