SolidSteel S5-5 Five Shelf Audio Rack
The SolidSteel S5-5 is the actual expression of our essential philosophy. It is fruit of the union between the technical research dedicated on the functionality of our products and on the absolute care of the aesthetic sense that has always been accorded. Thanks to the priority assigned on the qualitative research dedicated over the years to the ideal materials, all the main characteristics of the previous products – made by welding processes – have merged with the most valuable technical properties improved over the years through the development of Hyperspike line. It born in this way a basilar range of equipments mainly characterized by the excellence, quality and simplicity of its components.
The S5 Series products are distinguished by shelves designed and decoupled on two levels. The main shelves, perforated in their central areas, are processed with embedded particulars made of steel. The secondaries shelves, instead, via their placement on our new steel cones, generate the decoupling designed for our innovative system studied for the contrast of component’s vibrations. In particular, when placed on their relative steel discs (S Series PADS), our traditional steel spikes download toward the ground the set of accumulated vibrations from the whole structure during the normal use. This works finely to provide high levels of functionality. The aluminum tubes, as well as for the S3 Series, are filled with damping material (not grainy) and through their secure fastening system allow anyone to adjust the rack with preferred heights.
Ultimately, the customization is combined with the product technology described above, where the users can always adjust the heights of the plates on the shelves in order to enjoy a valid technical equipment at the service of their facilities or systems.
The SolidSteel S5-5 was designed for the most sensitive high-performance electronics. Each shelf features its own dampening pad, supported by spikes to minimize contact with the shelf. The dampening pad sits over the acoustic opening in the shelf. This opening ensures vibrating air isn’t trapped between the shelf and the pad, but can escape into the room.
The SolidSteel S5-5 shelves and pads are made of thick vibration-dampening MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard). The pads rest on solid steel spikes.The supporting aluminum pillars are packed with dampening material for added stability and to prevent the transmission of vibrations. The pillars, pads, and shelves are coated with a black polymer laminate, which further dampens vibrations.
The four pillars rest on solid steel carpet spikes that virtually isolate the stand — and the components it holds — from vibrations transmitted through the floor. Included are four protective discs so you can place the stand on a hardwood or laminate floor.
