Packaging of your critical IT hardware during a data center move is particularly critical to the safety and security of your valuable gear. Silverback’s specialized server crates have heavy latches, half-inch thick plywood, and reinforcement at all critical points, and crates are designed with a shock-mount base to minimize vibration during transport. They’re built to last and safely ship high value.
Our Server Packaging Process
Our process begins with assessing each item you want to ship. We carefully analyze each item’s characteristics to determine the best way to pack it. Next, we decide which of the latest packaging technologies to use, including anti-static wraps, cushioning, and foams to prevent electrostatic discharge from damaging the item’s components. We determine everything from what kind of padding may be required to minimize vibration to exact physical dimensions for the server crates. Our goal is full, end-to-end protection for your high-value assets.
Server Crate Dimensions
The external dimensions are designed to perfectly fit any ground or air transportation. Our design makes it easy to determine front and rear. With two doors, front and back, there is easy access for checking on equipment status or to facilitate power testing for the data centers that require it.
The inside of the crate is divided into two compartments, each the width of a standard 19” rack-mounted device. This creates a perfect slot for the servers. Combined with the anti-static foam in between, vibration during transit is minimized.
In addition to Silverback’s specialized server crates, companies trust us with:

Keeping Our Environment In Mind
