Select your open frame computer rack
Before placing an order, the buyer needs to understand where the frame will be installed, and what hardware pieces will be installed on it. Depending on this, a suitable open rack server cabinet is selected. We offer two options to cater to different needs:
- 2-Post – These open air server rack frames suit lightweight equipment or limited space environments. Ideal for mounting devices such as patch panels, routers, and switches, they offer ease of access to installed equipment. Their design prioritizes simplicity and space efficiency, making them suitable for setups where these aspects are crucial.
- 4-Post – Designed for heavier and larger equipment, open frame network rack with 4 posts provide enhanced stability and support. They are well-suited for servers, substantial network hardware, and other weighty IT equipment. The additional depth and strength of the 4-post design make it appropriate for environments needing a robust infrastructure to support heavier equipment.
Choosing the right height is another essential consideration. It’s measured in ‘U’ units, where 1U equals 1.75 inches. This standardized measurement is crucial for fitting equipment in rack-mounted setups.
We offer models from 18U (31.5 inches) to 42U (73.5 inches), accommodating a variety of equipment sizes and quantities. This height range allows for flexibility in planning both current and future IT infrastructure needs.
