Vibration-absorbing Low Profile Soft Feet
Anti-vibration Replacement Soft Feet (Pack of 4)
A great deal of PC case feet are solid plastic, or (at best) very hard rubber and therefore do a good job of transmitting unwanted vibrations from inside a PC via the chassis/case into the desk, floor or shelf on which the system sits. In this situation, where the case is in direct contact with the substrate, the PC can generate annoying noise elsewhere (secondary noise).
We have designed a unique set of 4 self-adhesive soft silicone feet (UK Reg Design Applied), of varying softness (for different case weights). These case feet are designed to decouple a PC case from the floor or substrate by absorbing vibrational energy, and therefore helping to minimise noise generation caused by vibrations.
A little extreme? Well, yes, perhaps: but even with the very quietest PCs it is vibration that becomes the most significant culprit/contributor to noise generation. So we have developed these case feet to try and minimise vibrations in our pursuit of 'ultimate noise reduction'. We hope you enjoy the difference!
Antivibration case feet are not just limited to combating PC noise and for vibration control in their application - they may be useful for Inkjet and Laser Printers, HiFi Separates, TVs, Small Form Factor PCs, Home Theatre PCs, and any number of appliances and enclosures that would benefit from vibration adsorption and reduction. Speaker cabinets may also be a useful application for these feet - helping to isolate the speaker cabinet from the surface on which it sits.
Available in 4 Different Softnesses:
* Light weight PC & SFF PC cases, HTPC cases, vibrating HiFi units, TV and home cable set top boxes, small speaker cabinets, inkjet printers etc. 8Kg (2.0Kg per foot) ACF3007-15B Matt Black Shore A 15°
Medium-to-light weight PCs, solid SFF cases, heavy HTPC cases, larger inkjet printers and laser printers, heavier HiFi units (such as power amps), speaker cabinets etc. 14Kg (3.5Kg per foot) ACF3007-20B Matt Black Shore A 20°
Medium-to-heavy weight PC cases (suitable for the majority of PCs), larger Macs (like the G5), large laser printers, large speaker cabinets etc. 22Kg (5.5Kg per foot) ACF3007-25B Matt Black Shore A 25°
Seriously heavy PCs and Tower Server cases - heavier PCs with multiple HDDs, tower-style case servers, other applications like noisy photocopiers and office equipment etc. 30Kg (7.5Kg per foot) ACF3007-30B Matt Black Shore A 30°
*The max load is the 'maximum optimal load' where compression still occurs in the feet. The feet can carry higher loads, but they become over-compressed, and suffer a reduced vibration-absorbing capacity if overloaded.
