For safety reasons, this Caster Kit is only recommended on racks heights of 30U or less. Casters add 1.5" to overall rack height. See installation instructions for more details.

Rack Top Options

Close out the top of this rack with one of four Rack Top options. Choose from black or galvanized Rack Tops with or without cable pass-throughs. These are useful on short racks for providing additional storage space. Hardware included.
Note: These rack tops are only available for the 28.875" rack depth option

Rack Side Panels

These tool-less, non-locking, Side Panel Kits come in 16U, 24U, 30U, 36U, 44U, 50U, 55U and 58U sizes.

Customer Feedback

“RackSolutions’ quick turnaround time on racks and custom components has helped to support SoftLayer’s exponential growth at multiple domestic and international sites.” - Joshua Rushe, V.P. of Operations at SoftLayer -

"Please pass on to everyone at RackSolutions how pleased we are with the three 44U racks, shelving and rails we purchased from RackSolutions. I've been in this business a lot of years, put together many rack systems, and never have I had such an easy experience. Everything fits perfectly, plenty of hardware, easily understandable instructions, and the sliding shelving is great for all our older non-rackable servers. Our company has several different kinds of servers...Dell, Compaq, IBM, and HP, and everything fits great in your racks. We just wanted to say we would recommend your product for anyone looking for a new rack solution for their network." - M. Morris, Systems Administrator -

"You guys ROCK. I bought a 4-post rack for a client through a local reseller--am amazed at the quality of materials and the amount of care and forethought put into the design. It's a real pleasure these days to see a beautifully-made product, delivered on time, carefully packaged, with clear, simple assembly instructions. And it really made my day to see the included masonry fasteners AND the drill bit. Keep it up!" - Brian K. IT Consultant -
