Rackmount Cases

Rack fitting enclosures or Rackmount Cases are specialised devices used as protection and designed for mounting standard 19-inch rack mount equipment servers, routers, UPS systems, switches, audio/video-units. For electronic equipment racks (e.g. 19 or 23 inches wide), the term 1U is used to define one rack unit of height. To be precise, 1U equals 1.75-inches (44.45mm) of rack height. U is the standard unit of measure for designating the vertical usable space or height of racks (metal frame designed to hold hardware devices) and cabinets (enclosures with one or more doors). This unit of measurement refers to the space between shelves on a rack. 1U is equal to 1.75 inches.

    Therefore, a 2U rack mount height would be 2 x 1.75", which equals 3.5-inches high.
    These PC cases are available in specific server sizes namely 1U, 2U, 3U, 4U.

Rack fitting enclosures are also known as rackmount enclosures, rackmount cases, server racks and 19-Inch racking plus made from aluminium and steel providing equipment components with safe storage.

The enclosures are available in various dimensions and size giving you the opportunity to tailor a rackmount case and enclosure to your needs. When putting together rackmount cases you should also consider enclosure accessories required completing your component storage. Enclosure accessories available from rack cable management, hardware, rack panels and rails, server cabinets, rack drawers, shelves, server and sub-racks.

How do rackmount cases and rack fitting enclosures work?

The front panels of rack fitting cases and enclosures are usually pre-drilled, so you can easily mount them in an industry-standard rack. They are designed with ventilation slots, usually at the top and bottom to keep your electronics cool. The cases and enclosures will also come with screws to prevent equipment from moving within the rack, and they come in different configurations.
