Thread: 1/4 split rack

    1/4 split rack

    Hi!

    We are looking at leasing some cage, and I would like to have a few racks much the same as redbus offers as interShelf. That is a standard rack split in 4 - with four shelfs and four doors.

    Anyone knows where to find som rack's of this type?

    Thanks

    There 42U racks divided into 10U with shelfs dividing the 10U's and keyed doors per cabinent right? Air Flow at top, and clear doors on front?

    You need to buy some for your DC or you asking where to find a place to rent space like this?

    I am asking for a good place to by, or a good brand - where I will find four doors as an option. Maybe not the most expensive stuff on the block

    The floor place I got covered good.

    you possibly dont want exactly the *same* ones as interhouse, as they have 4 doors at the front but only 1 door at the rear, better are the 4*11u units with 4 doors at the front, 4 at the rear

    is the rear of an OthelloShelf unit showing the rear security panel, we have them made for us by the same co that makes the redbus units, just to a higher spec.

    exact pricing varies on how many you want, but the door sets are over 400, so you can guess from that.

    if you're caging off, and looking at the 4*11u systems then presumably you're thinking of allowing client access, have you found a supplier for all your racks, or are you only looking @ the quarters, you might find it's better to stick with one manufacturer, so that all the spares/doors/shelves/nuts&bolts etc are interchangeable ...

    Thanks - good advice. I basicly need only on or two racks realy.

    We are mostly using shelfs, and that's why we want some floor area, it more convinient to work on. But I have some clients who wants access, and for those I want a small area with racks. Only need one or two I suppose.

    So I guess we can get our company name same way as redbus then? That would look nice on some pictures

    >I basicly need only on or two racks realy.

    min order of the 4*11u is 5, best price iobtained when you buy 25+

    if all you need is a couple of racks, then it's going to be expensiev getting a144sqft cage built. there are a couple of other possibilities - PM me for details...
