Published date: 18 June 2019

Issue: 
The NetShelter seismic mounting brackets need to be mounted to the floor. There are different floor types.

Product Line: 
NetShelter SX

Environment: 
All models, all serial numbers. 

Cause: 
The NetShelter seismic mounting brackets installation manuals only show mounting to the cabinet, not the floor. 

Resolution: 
Using the pallet bracket or AR7701 the NetShelter SX can be installed per IBC Low Seismic Area and Moderate Seismic Area onto a concrete slab, concrete fill over metal deck, raised composite floor concrete filled metal deck, and raised composite floor concrete slab.

An updated document can be loaded off the APC website of any NetShelter SX cabinet under the Documentation tab. 

Using AR7701A-S the NetShelter SX can be installed per OSHPD onto a concrete slab, and concrete fill over metal deck.
