Rack Fitting Cases & Enclosures

Rack fitting enclosures are specialised devices used as protection and designed for mounting standard 19" rack-mount equipment-servers, routers, UPS systems, switches, audio/video-units. For electronic equipment racks (e.g., 19 or 23 inches wide), the term 1U is used to define one rack unit of height. To be precise, 1U equals 1.75-inches (44.45mm) of rack height. U is the standard unit of measure for designating the vertical usable space, or height of racks (metal frame designed to hold hardware devices) and cabinets (enclosures with one or more doors). This unit of measurement refers to the space between shelves on a rack. 1U is equal to 1.75 inches.

Therefore, a 2U rack mount height would be 2 x 1.75”, which equals 3.5-inches high.

These PC cases are available in specific server sizes namely 1U, 2U, 3U, 4U
