I'm just considering moving some equipment to a rack and hoping to do this cheap/free with second hand gear. This is for my lab at work, but don't have a budget for this unfortunately. Just have a lot of old gear scattered across benches, and want to tidy it up.
Ideally a tall rack (over 42U, ideally 48U or so) with a small footprint (maybe 600/600). A transparent door and removable side panels would be ideal. A built-in power distribution unit would be great, but not required.
Have some 3U and 4U equipment (has front brackets only, no rails). Looking for some rails for these (preferably slide rails), some shelves (preferably sliding) and some blank panels to block off unused spaces (preferably thin, will be drilling through this for gas fittings).
I've never dealt with racks before, so not too sure what I'm doing. Can find racks easily enough on trademe but having some difficulty with rails, etc. Located in Auckland
