POLYRACK has been awarded with this year's iF DESIGN AWARD and is therefore one of the winners of the worldwide renowned design label. The FrameTEC for 19” racks, is the winning product in the discipline “Product”, in the category “Industry/Tools”. A discrete yet unobtrusive design forms the basis of the FrameTEC appearance for equipment manufacturers, who can use the system in a highly individualized way for their own brands. Each year, the world’s oldest independent design organization, iF International Forum Design GmbH, organizes the iF DESIGN AWARD.
The FrameTEC case solution is characterized by a modern artless and at the same time functional shape. The shadow gap between the inner and outer shells visually breaks up the calm appearance on the sides. In addition to the slim walls, a protruding framing protects the side elements, while a continuous chamfer surface defines the outer contours. Functional customizations ranging from various handle solutions to a completely integrated display are possible without breaking the elegant design.
The desktop case allows a high degree of flexibility dimensioning the size - heights from 176 to approx. 576 mm and installation from 3U to max. 12U are possible. The standard width for 19" rack mounting can be adjusted individually and the installation range in depth reaches up to 500mm.
Furthermore, the 133-member, independent, international jury of experts was convinced by the innovative design of the case: The desktop case offers a mounting option for 19" plug-in units and enables a simple while flexible access from all sides, as well as alternatively a complete solid front. This results in a unique front view without visible screws, while the screws are otherwise only visible on the front and rear sides.
The number of applicants was large: the jurors had to award the popular prize from among almost 11,000 submissions out of 56 countries. Further information about POLYRACK's FrameTEC desktop case can be found on the iF Design website.
