Cross-Guard offers a versatile range of security caging options. Although generally less popular than the company’s range of thicker steel cages, the team at Cross-Guard can supply wire mesh security cages. This article examines the difference between wire mesh security cages and steel cages used within the confines of a data center.
Wire mesh security cages for data centers
Wire mesh security cages are a lighter option and can provide increased airflow and light access compared to thicker steel security cages. They’re a good choice if you’re looking for a little additional security in your data center, but want to further optimise airflow. However, if you’d prefer an alternative that offers you increased security, you’ll want to consider our Connexions modular server cages or our market-leading Extendor server cages.
Connexions and Extendor server cages for data centers
Since the main point of using a server security cage within your data center at all is to restrict and prevent access to your servers by unauthorised personnel, Connexions and Extendor steel security cages may be better suited to achieve your needs.
Connexions are high-strength data center security cages and they are extremely versatile. Their modular nature makes it easy to adapt them to changing environments or changing needs. They are made from punched steel panels and can fully enclose or partly enclose a section of the room to keep your servers safe. These flexible server cages can be manufactured and installed to your requirements – Cross-Guard’s specialist installers work around and overcome any challenges such as overhead services.
For unprecedented security, you may wish to consider our heavy-duty Extendor server security cages, which are manufactured from the Extendor security grilles. There are two models available: the Extendor Vulcan server security cage (certified to Security Rating 2 by the LPCB) and the Extendor Eclipse server security cage (certified to Security Rating 3 by the LPCB).
These server security cages are built to withstand extreme attack and are resistant to a wide range of tools. Providing maximum strength, the Extendor server security cages are also well suited to fit varying locations and applications.
