Aluminum Relay Racks Make Quick Work of 19″ rack mount needs

It is hard to find a product that is more functional than an Aluminum Relay Rack.  With its simple two rails structure, it allows easy mounting of components with complete air circulation providing the ultimate in cooling.  Long considered only valuable in the telecommunications industry, it seems to be developing a following in other fields including server farms and testing.  The biggest advantage is weight given that aluminum is much lighter weight than steel.  With a weight of only 31 pounds for the best-selling 77” panel space size, it does not require two people to move it into a facility nor to assemble.  Their extruded rails provide incredible strength making them the go-to product for any 10 or 23” needs.

Bud’s Aluminum Relay Rack Balances Low Cost, High Strength, and Light Weight

When it comes to 19” Equipment Racks, it is amazing how simple features can make such a difference.  This is the case with Bud Industries Aluminum Relay Racks.  19” racking was developed by the telephone industry in the 1920’s to provide standardization for equipment mounting and also to save space.  As rapidly as the electronics industry evolves, this standard has stood the test of time for nearly 100 years.  A relay rack is the common name for a 2 post rack that is the simplest way to mount servers, power supplies or other rack mount equipment.   The racks are built in multiples of 1.75” (or “u’s) with holes drill on the EIA standard of ¾”, ¾”, ½”.  This standardization allows for any manufacturer’s equipment to be easily installed.
