9RU wall mount rack

Due to the great success of the Redback Rack range of racks, we have now introduced a 9RU wall mount rack. This model comes in 450 mm deep as a single section and a 600mm deep as a double section. The double section has a convenient hinged back to make cable access to the rear of mounted equipment easy to install cables etc.

Air-conditioned out door racks

Introducing an air-conditioner to our range of outdoor IP rated racks, means we can offer a turnkey solution for the outdoor installations.

We can customise these racks as required, including:

  • IP rated racks
  • Air conditioners
  • UPS with long run batteries
  • Lights and cameras when door is opened
  • Tamper switches
  • Environment censors

Advantages of buying on Specials

A really good special, is when goods are sold for just above cost. Manufacturers often do  this  to clear stock as they may be over stocked in these lines.

This is an ideal opportunity for customers to stock up or to pass the discounted goods on in promotions.

Every rack needs a UPS

Most critical communications gear is housed in a rack.  To operate at full potential, they should all be backed up by a UPS.

Rack mount UPS are more costly than free standing UPS, because of higher manufacturing costs. If space permits, many racks have freestanding UPS installed especially on the smaller installations.

IP Ratings

IP (or “Ingress Protection”) ratings are defined in international standard EN 60529 (British BS EN 60529:1992, European IEC 60509:1989). They are used to define levels of sealing effectiveness of electrical enclosures against intrusion from foreign bodies (tools, dirt etc.) and moisture.

First Digit  = Indicates Dust resistance, or intrusion protection i.e. the size of partial that can enter the enclosure – “1” – Being the lowest , having little or no protection and “7” being the highest, totally dust proof.

Second Digit = water or moisture protection i.e.  “1” Being the lowest , having little or no protection and “9” being the highest, protected against prolonged effects of immersion under pressure.
