Triple Wide Pocket Door Rack w/Modular Rack Shell Storage
This triple wide rack transport case was designed to hold 5 – 6RU modular rack shells, in addition to 2 built in 18RU rack frames and a storage drawer. The front of the case features 3 pocket doors and 2 large doors that fold flat against the sides of the case during use.
The case interior is designed to hold 5 – 6U rack shells that the customer currently owns. Each shell rides on a 1” PE foam block with a ¼” marine grade plastic board laminated to the top. This plastic/foam piece allows the shell to slide in and out easily. A marine grade plastic stop block keeps the rack contained in its compartment during use. The block can be easily removed using a simple hex key when rack needs to be unloaded from the case.
Dual 18U rack frames are provided for stationary equipment. Each frame is 24” deep with front, mid, and rear rack rail sets. The front & rear rails are pre-tapped 10/32” rail, with the center rail being a dual flanged box style rail that acts as a cable raceway. The frames are shock mounted.
A custom, built in storage drawer is provided for miscellaneous items. The drawer features interior dimensions of 19” wide x 22.75” deep x 6” tall. The drawer is built from ½” Baltic Birch and is finished with black texture coating. The drawer is mounted on HD Accuride glides.
The case exterior is built from ½” plywood laminated with black ABS plastic. The front 3 doors are mounted on pocket door glides allowing them to slide into the case when in use. The rear doors are mounted on double hinges allowing them to fold flat against the sides of the case when in use. The rear doors are secured via magnets to the case side to ensure that they do not swing open on uneven ground. The case rides on HD Colson 4” x 2” casters mounted on a full sized ¾” caster board. OD dims are 75” x 30” for truck pack.
