Modular Cabinet Construction

The Crown CEC cabinet has been designed to allow a host of different configurations, this is achieved with a simple modular bay system. A range of different bay types are available and these bays can be bolted together to form a variety of different cabinet configurations.

This system means that we can construct a cabinet to suit the desired specification without having to customise the design for each configuration. This also means a cabinet can be altered to allow it to be used for a different or additional purpose.

Cabinet Bays

Each bay has been designed for a different purpose and can include 19″ racking, a simple back board or an array of shelving and 19-inch racking. Custom bay designs are also available on request.

Individual bays can be open into its neighbouring bay or can be sealed off and have different keys, allowing control over access to different equipment for different departments or companies.
