It is a 16-space rack, with three 2U space shelves and three 2U space vented blanks. It supports up to 226.8 kg, while the 2U shelf supports up to 22.7 kg.

Casting a glance over the current European CI market conditions, Neil Curry ñ managing director EMEA for OmniMount Systems ñ told IE Residential: ìDespite the heavy global recession many of the custom installers we deal with feel that things in the sector have been a little better than expected. But obviously they are still eager for more green shoots. OmniMount hopes that the Viking Rack range of products can help fill a void in the market for racks that are delivered ready-built. In the current economic climate such labour-, and therefore cost-saving designs are at a premium.î
