Rackz, the UK-based 19 inch rack specialist designer, manufacturer and supplier, has expanded its range of wood finish credenza rack units which are being distributed worldwide via the Penn-Elcom network.
The credenza range is said to be a simple self-assembly product, designed for quick, efficient and stress-free set up.
Credenza racks are claimed to fit together like LEGO and are stabilised by tightening eight screws. The finishes currently available are beech, knotty oak and black ash. Smoked Plexiglass ‘barn door’ kits are available as an optional extra.
The range is constantly expanding, and recent orders include some 600mm deep ‘specials’ which were produced to house a selection of office computers and file servers.
Other new Rackz products include an extension of the popular Sloping Console Top racks which now includes a new deeper 12U unit, which is also 600mm deep.
According to Rackz, this follows the trend for leading audio manufacturers to increase their designs from 10 to 12U formats, and so far, the company says that the accompanying rack-mounts have been a success in the education installation sector in particular.
"The 19 inch racking market is constantly evolving and changing all the time, with an increasing crossover between the once separate areas of AV, IT and surveillance,” said Rackz’ Dave Roberts. “As the world gets ‘smaller and smarter’, more and increasingly dynamic 19 inch rack solutions are required into which the relevant hardware can be fitted. With so much commercial, industrial and domestic infrastructure now being computer controlled, he predicts that the demand for quality, innovative racking solutions will continue, especially with the on-going development for smart-homes and home-office working practices.”
