Rack shelves can be mounted in any 19-inch cabinet
Universal 19 inch, cantilever rack shelves can be mounted in any standard 19-inch rack or cabinet. The shelves are the latest additions to Metcase’s rack accessories range and enable electronics equipment without built-in 19-inch fittings to be added to racks or cabinets quickly and easily, said Metcase.
The 2U shelves are DIN 41494 and IEC 60297-3 compliant. They can be used in a range of applications including networking and communications equipment, industrial computers, sound and studio systems, laboratory instruments and industrial control.
Slots in the bottom of the C4 mild steel shelves are designed to aid in-rack ventilation. The shelves are finished in tough powder polyester paint in either anthracite (RAL 7016) or light grey (RAL 7035) as standard. There are two standard sizes – 88.1 x 482.6 x 280mm and 88.1 x 482.6 x 400mm. Custom sizes are available on request.
The cantilever shelves join Metcase’s accessory range and are positioned as an alternative to Metcase’s open-topped Combimet T aluminium 19-inch rack cases. The difference being that Combmiet T has a front panel and a rear lip. It is available as standard in 2U and 3U heights (88.1 x 482.6 x 365mm and 132.5 x 482.6 x 365mm). The standard colours are light grey (RAL 7035) and black (RAL 9005).
In addition to the 19-inch cantilever shelves, the Metcase accessory range includes 19-inch mounting kits, a PCB mounting kit, PCB / panel fixing screws, PCB guides, mounting plates, front panels, chassis plates, wall-mounting kits, an assembly tool and a range of case feet (including tilt-leg versions).
All Metcase enclosures can be supplied fully customised. Services include bespoke sizes, custom front panels, CNC machining, fixings and inserts, painting/finishing and photo-quality digital printing of graphics, legends and logos.
