AMBER INTERNATIONAL INCREASES FORGE AV RACK HOLDINGS

Amber is now also stocking the company's Stealth series of AV racks.

Following on from the distribution agreement earlier in the year, Master EMEA distributor, Amber International has streamlined the ordering and specification process for its Forge Racking Solutions portfolio - by directing installers to the Forge PC rack configurator. In addition, Amber is now also stocking the company's Stealth series of AV racks.


The recently introduced Forge PC rack configurator allows installers to electronically construct rack setups and present it to the customer prior to ordering any products, making the specifying stage a lot simpler. The software provides a step-by-step configuration wizard, front, side and rear views of created rack setups, and various measuring and labelling capabilities. The tool also provides pricing at trade and MSRP levels, with the installer then able to pass the rack configuration straight to Amber for a swift and accurate delivery.

Forge's Stealth series of racks are not only durable but also look good enough to put in the middle of a room. Designed primarily to stand alone, the rack can also rest on casters or slide out from a wall, meaning the installer doesn't need to compromise on placement, as the rack will always be stable and secure. The Stealth series ships with 20U - 44U contoured corner front and rear posts with numbered spaces, comes in a stylish black finish and is super strong to support serious installations of up to 1500lbs. For convenience during transport, the Stealth series also ships flat packed, making the rack easy to store and handle.

The Thin Line series are still the cornerstone of the Forge line-up. These floor standing and wall mounted racks are ultra-thin at only 485mm wide. Despite the space saving design, the racks are still wide and strong enough to accommodate all modern AV equipment - ensuring maximum safety when fully or unevenly loaded.

"We are pleased to now offer the entirety of the Forge line up to our CI dealers, alongside directing them to the fantastic Forge PC rack configurator," says Cees van Wendel de Joode, Sales Manager for Amber International. "From specifying to ordering to delivery, the whole Forge process has now been completely streamlined. This, alongside the combination of rigid construction, stylish design and knockdown shipping, all at an accessible price point, makes Forge racking an attractive offering to installers.

Optional Forge items such as wheel bases, side panels and doors are also available with wall mounted racks. For quick and easy specification of typical rack configurations, Forge has designed several packaged 'rack kits' across both ranges - which include all required accessories and shelving.
