36U Racks and Server Cabinets

36U server racks and floor standing data cabinets from Server Room Environments include standard server room and datacentre racks in addition to protective enclosures for roadside and extreme applications. The standard cabinets can be supplied complete or in flatpack kits for assembly on site. With widths from 600-800mm and internal depths up to 1200mm these 36U racks can accommodate a range of IoT devices, networking peripherals and server applications. Each rack offers options in terms of lockable rear and front door options, internal arrangements and castors. Additional products available include power distribution units, rackmount UPS and temperature monitoring.

36U Rack and Cabinet Guide

When selecting a rack or cabinet there are several factors to consider.

Rack Height

A 36U rack or cabinet can house equipment whose total height when placed into the rack is no more 63inches or 160.02cm (16m) with 1U=1.75inches or 44.45mm. Care therefore has to be taken when selecting a rack to make sure that there cabinet height is sufficient to house the IT server, networking peripheral or IoT device.

Rack Width

The standard rackmount width is 19inches (482.6mm) and cabinets are typically available in 600mm or 800mm width. Most products will either fit to the front rack pillars using cage nuts onto flanges attached to the rack-mountable device, or slide rails running from the front to the rear pillars or sit on internal shelves or slide-out trays. Room should be left around the rack for adequate air flow and access.

Rack Depth

The depth of cabinet available range from 600-1200mm. Care should be taken when selecting a rack depth to ensure that it is suitably long enough for the equipment to be housed including any necessary space for cables (bend radius) and connection access. How to manage cables is important for any rack size for easy cable identification and to avoid accidental disconnection.

Open or Closed Racks

The majority of server racks and data cabinets supplied are enclosed rather than open frames. An enclosed cabinet with a front and rear door and side panels is more secure and will provide with more efficient airflow management.
