Bud BRP Server Rack Series Is Plug and Play

19” Cabinet racks have been in use for almost 100 years since ATT first decided to set the standard for mounting of the termination and repeater equipment for toll cables in the early days of the telephone.  A few years later, the hole locations and distances between holes on the mounting rails of 1.75” was established and Bud Industries created its first “relay racks” shortly thereafter as we serviced the rapidly growing radio market.  Flash forward, and as is the case for many type of electronic enclosures, the rack specifications have remained consistent but the applications have changed with technology.  Today, instead of cable hubs and repeaters, these racks are likely to be used for server mounting, power supplies, as well as audio and data communications equipment.

Bud’s Cabinet Racks Production Impresses

BUD BRP Cabinet Rack

I recently returned from a trip to China to visit out factories there. One of the highlights was to see the improved production techniques at our cabinet rack facility near Shanghai. While in the US we often hear of poor working conditions at Chinese factories, I was impressed with what I saw. Lighting had been improved, ventilation was plentiful even on a hot, muggy day, and their work hours were now broken up during the day with a 1.5 hour lunch that allows the people to truly rest and get refreshed. This type of extended lunch period has become more typical in China as we saw it at many factories that we visited. We could see a much more content work force and improved productivity. There just was not the decline in productivity in the afternoon that is often evident in a manufacturing facility

 The Bud BRP series has always been a great choice for any 19” cabinet rack mounting requirement. Not only is it solidly built with a 1200 lb. weight load capacity, but it comes with so many extra features and accessories to make the buying process simple. Included in the standard product is a metal front door, 1 or 2 shelves depending on the height, an installed fan tray, and casters and levelers. The stylish cabinet comes fully assembled and ready to go upon receipt. Best of all, it is priced below most competitive products which come without the included accessories. These racks are in stock today and available from your local Bud distributor.
