Gangable racks are designed for larger installations where more than one rack is needed. Normally, they are floor-standing and feature large openings on the sides as well as front and back, and have holes or pre-installed nuts that allow the racks to be bolted together side-to-side. (Some installers also prefer them for single-rack jobs because the open sides provide unrestricted access during installation.) Attaching the racks firmly together provides strength, stability, and allows cabling to pass between racks. Side panel sets are available to cover the sides once the installation is complete; one set of side panels will close off an entire row of ganged racks.
Most floor-standing gangable racks range in capacity from 19 to 44 or 45 spaces, with the Extra Tall VMRK up to 54 spaces.
Solutions are also available to close off one or more sides in the middle of a row of ganged racks – for securely separating web hosting machines, for example – call us for details.
