Solid Tech’s Hybrid comes from a long heritage of award winning rack engineering and features all the top state-of-the-art engineering qualities that you would expect.
The Hybrid’s latest developments allow flexibility like never before. Starting for example with a 4-shelf vertical rack you can easily reassemble with the focus on horizontal expansion such as a 2-shelf racks side by side. If needed later, you can build vertically again while keeping the horizontal foundation from earlier. With this type of flexibility there are endless of options to explore, meaning you can design the optimum A/V rack and tweak according to any changes you wish to make without any loss of platform-stability. Hybrid pillars and extrusions are available in silver or black anodized aluminum.

Hybrid Top Table
Hybrid top table is available in black and white MDF or veneered sandwich board.
Black and white painted board
Texture painted MDF with Spirit Level for easy leveling.
Size is 695 x 520 x 22mm and weight is 6 kg.
When only supported in the corners max recommended load is 60kg. However if the Hybrid’s top most shelf is raised and supports are placed between the Hybrid shelf and Top Table Shelf the load can be 125kg.
Veneered sandwich board
The Veneered sandwich board is available in oak, black oak, cherry and walnut.
To the new Hybrid Wood corner pillars is also new turntable developed. These new turntables are made of a sandwich board that have been veneered in black oak, oak, walnut and cherry. The sandwich board consists of 4 layers:
- Layer 1: thin sheet of cork on the top to avoid any potential ringing in the table
- Layer 2: MDF
- Layer 3: Porous damp layer that will absorb and remove resonance in the table
- Layer 4: MDF
The board has been tested by letting a 9,8g steel ball be dropped 50 cm above the sandwich board and compared with a standard MDF board. The result is described in below table:
|Test object||Peak value (dB)||Peak average over 3 seconds (dB)|
|Sandwich board||109,7 dB||73,9 dB|
|Standard MDF board||119,9 dB||87,1 dB|
From the result one can read that the sandwich board basically damp with 10-13dB compared to a standard MDF board.
The large top tables have a limitation of load as it is placed on top of the corner pillars of the Rack of Silence. The maximum load is 50kg. If further load is required it is recommended to place the uppermost rack shelf just beneath it and use the apparatus support to assist the support of the table. In this way the maximum load can be increased to 160kg.
