Racks are frame structures designed for mounting standard 19" rack-mount equipment-servers, routers, UPS systems, switches, audio/video-regardless of vendor. They provide rack equipment organization, security and cable management while enabling airflow. There are two basic types: rack enclosures (also called rack cabinets) and open-frame racks.
Note: Earthquake zones and locations prone to shock or vibration use specially designed racks.
If access control and equipment protection are important to you, we recommend a Rack Enclosure.
If you simply need an economical way to organize IT equipment, we suggest an Open-Frame Rack.
Wall Mount Racks are ideal for securely housing IT equipment in classrooms or sites with limited floor space.
In small but secure locations, a wall mount open frame rack provides excellent airflow and easy access to wiring.
The height of a rack, and the height of equipment in it, is expressed in "rack units" (a rack unit is 1.75 inches, or 44.45mm). The actual height of a 42U rack is therefore 42 x 1.75 = 73.5 inches. A 2U server would occupy two of the available 42 rack units.
Be sure to make an accurate assessment of the amount of rack space you currently need, and allow for future growth.
Determine the maximum rack depth required to mount your equipment in a floor-standing or wall-mount rack enclosure cabinet.
Racks have a weight limit. Make sure that the capacity of the rack is greater than the total weight of the equipment being mounted.
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard requires that all companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.
Shock Pallet models feature additional reinforcement and shock-absorbing material for safely re-shipping loaded racks to remote sites.
Expansion models can be bayed together easily to form rows, which is ideal for hot-aisle/cold-aisle cooling techniques.
Racks ship fully assembled for easy installation. However, sometimes doorways or tight spaces cannot accommodate fully assembled racks, so knockdown models ship disassembled for easier transportation.
Thermal Duct Rack Enclosures directly connect to a facility's exhaust system to remove hot air not only from the rack but from the entire room.
Some data center sites host multiple users in a single Rack Cabinet. Co-location models have two separate compartments to allow secure access to the correct users.
GSA schedule purchases and other government contracts require products that comply with the Trade Agreement Act (TAA).
In addition to extended-depth models, extra-wide models provide extra space for cables and improved airflow.
Seismic Enclosures have a rugged welded construction and are tested to Seismic Zone 4 standards, making them ideal for sites that are earthquake-prone or are subject to regular vibration, such as an airport or factory.
Shelves, mounting rails, stabilization, cooling, patch panels, hardware kits, casters, and more enable custom installations to accommodate any space limitation or expansion requirement. View our Compatibility Guide to look at the options.
Organize and secure networking, storage and telecom equipment in data centers, server rooms and network closets.
High-performance, economical storage for rackmount equipment in secure IT environments.
Keep computers and networking equipment safe and off the floor when space is limited.
