We have a surplus server cabinet for sale after an office move. Apprx 2m by 0.8m I've had a look for branding but couldn''t find any sorry. However it feels solid and well made. Has mesh front and back and solid wall. Unfortunately the other wall is missing. Also comes with screen and keyboard as well as input switcher. Currently in Hamilton, but could potentially bring it up to Auckland if required. Will give it a dust and tidy up prior to sale. Looking for offers. (edited to remove giant photo!)

Hi, would you be able source a low cost enclosure maybe 600x600 or 800x600 face panel and maybe 300-400mm deep? It will house most of a home network gear? I am thinking to have in this enclosure:


- fibre termination box + modem


- few power points for various gear


- network storage (D-link 2x TB HDDs)


- some sort of switch and a patch panel as I am looking to wire most areas during a large renovation coming up. I am thinking a 32 channel switch. It does not have to be a rack system, I will even build shelves inside if there is none.


Ideally the enclosure is metal as it will be installed through the wall in the garage (basement) with most of it on the outside (which is an area under the house, not in the rain). Small holes and openings at the back - I can block properly with sheet metal, rivets, etc. The access door will be accessed from inside the garage. Once setup properly, I do not expect to have to get into this box too often. I will fit a temperature controlled fan and filter (if really needed).




Any help will be much appreciated.
