Hold up to 680 kilograms of equipment with Black Box's Mobile Open Racks

Black Box's line of Mobile Open Racks holds up to 680kg of IT, test, diagnostic, and other electrical equipment. Engineers, developers, technicians, and designers can now clean up their desks and labs, and store IT equipment neatly under their workstations. When it is time to work, users can just wheel the rack out. When done, they can wheel the rack back.

Mobile Open Racks are designed by engineers, for engineers. These mobile open-frame server racks provide unobstructed airflow and fast access to equipment, allowing for a tidy organised desk space.

The 19" racks with M6 rails are designed to hold servers, network switches, PDUs, UPSes, KVM switches, and other rackmountable equipment. The heavy-duty racks are constructed of 14-gauge steel and feature double casters, which roll smoothly over thresholds, uneven floors, carpets, and rough surfaces. With cable management hooks included, users will also get the open space they need to easily organise cables and power cords, making it easier to trace cords and potential problems.

Users can choose from 2-post racks, which hold 450 kg, or 4-post racks, which hold 680 kg of equipment. Both come in two heights, 11U or 19U, to fit under standard-height (63.5 cm) desks or standing-height (97.8 cm) desks. All feature a 50.8 x 50.8 cm bottom shelf for storing extra equipment.

"We developed these racks in house for our own use," says Joey Bernardo, Black Box Infrastructure Product Manager. "We couldn't find any racks that were strong enough to stand up to daily use—and abuse—so we designed our own. Because we actually use the racks, we know exactly what engineers and developers need and designed the racks to be practical, durable, and easy to roll."
