Indestructible and secure
Ensuring drive protection and longevity are the foundation of a good system design/build. The MB994SK-1B is capable of withstanding the harshest environments due to its rugged heavy duty full metal construction from the outer shell to the inner trays. The ToughArmor's full metal design is also perfect for industrial, military and medical systems that require a flammability rating as the full metal design is considered to already comply with most requirements. The metal construction dissipates heat from the hard drives to the backplane cage essentially acting as a heat sink to keep drives cool. We've also added a new locking mechanism that provides an additional layer of security by preventing drive access from unwanted intruders or meddlers. In order to keep it compact, we have embed a custom made metal lock mechanism to the EZ Slide Mini tray, so each bay has it's own individual lock allowing the user to lock only certain desired drives.

The built-in drive protection cover added stability during the drive insertion and provides extra protection to the drive.
Huge capabilities in a small form factor
Utilizing the standard 5.25” bay form factor, the compact design allows the enclosure to be used in various applications, catering to a wide audience.
