Create a Livable Outdoor Space by Adding a Deck

Outdoor livable space is a popular trend. You can set up an outdoor seating area, outdoor kitchen or outdoor dining space. This allows you to entertain guests outside or host a larger party than what your home can hold. This trend inspired my wife and I to build our own outdoor livable space. However, one of the biggest decisions we faced was what the base for our space would be. We could use concrete, lay pavers or construct a deck. After doing a lot of research, we decided on a deck. It was a challenging decision, but we are pleased with the outcome. In fact, we are so happy we decided to start this blog and help educate other people on decks and livable spaces. Learn the benefits, learn the downside, learn how to care for your and learn what kinds of wood are best for an outdoor deck.

Customized Computer System Mounting And Protection

by Kelly Simmons

Wide-scale computer departments and data centers often need more than desks and tables to mount their computers. From racks to mount certain types of servers to protective cages to prevent physical tampering, the need for customized framework can send technology outsourcers across far too many specialty stores to find what they need. Instead, consider a custom metal fabrication team for building your next, cage, rack or mounting system.

Server Rack Considerations

Many of the biggest brands in servers offer a standardized shape and size for their systems, but the world of technology does not always stick with the biggest brands. Many tech professionals find that barebones systems (lacking specific brand software) are far better for customization and may have other hardware features. Unfortunately, not all third-party systems will fit in the same mold.

Some units may be too small to fit in a rack, requiring a plate to be installed for the unit to rest on. This may work for the most stable situations, but an accidental pull or tripping of wires can bring that expensive device to the floor.

Other units may be too big for a given rack, requiring either metal cutting or an entirely new rack. If you don't want to waste money on rack space that may not fit or know the dimensions of your different devices, contact a custom metal fabrication team first.

By taking the dimensions of your devices, the fabrication team can build a rack that has screw and rail placement for your specific devices. If you want to leave space for other know devices that may be different in size, the fabrication team can design adapters to be installed.

If you'd rather keep your existing rack and fit smaller or properly sized devices that have different screw or rail connections, the fabrication team can design adapters for those devices as well.

Security Casing And Caging

Physical security is a must for certain devices. If you're worried about theft of data, physical connection of illegal devices or if you have to comply with strict security requirements, a custom metal fabrication team can design a case that works for you.

A metal case with opening and closing plates can be installed to block off certain ports temporarily. Even in strict settings that don't allow USB connections during normal operations, technicians may still need to access the ports. A key pair with a closing panel would work well for such purposes.

Custom cases and cages can be design with specific holes that allow cables to be connected and distributed as needed, but not removed. Contact a custom metal fabrication team to begin designing a metal structure for your computer systems.
