A Place to Stand

Archimedes famously said, "Give me a lever and a place to stand and I can move the world." Quartet Marketing's Stirling Trayle and Composite Products LLC's Gus Malek-Madani take that "place to stand" part seriously. Malek-Madani makes stands from carbon fiber and he's adamanant that metal and glass "are the worst materials for isolation and vibration energy dissipation." His solution? Carbon fiber.

Malek-Madani teamed with Quartet to produce the CF 2000 ($500–$600), which can either replace existing shelves in racks, or be used as stand-alone on-shelf support.

No job, as they say, too small.

It would be nice if the people who sell these type products would provide a reference site where the resonances of various materials could be compared.
