Middle Atlantic Innovates Racks?Again
Middle Atlantic Products has debuted several new rack products, including the new EGR Series AV rack enclosures and the C-5 Credenza Rack Series.
The EGR Series racks feature a new "V-system" of pre-drilled sides with laser knockout mounting holes on a 5.25-inch grid. The design eliminates field drilling to mount small components by allowing the integrator to knock out any of the precut holes and use the company's special stud to provide a mounting point, according to company officials.
A variety of new brackets are available for the V-System that can be used to provide mounting points for large and small equipment, cable tie points and power strip mounting, or a rear rack rail in full or partial height sections.
A unique optional cable-entry door comes with a brush grommet "arch" that can be installed in the top or bottom of the opening to provide a cable entry path. Because of its design, it can be installed before or after the cables, in the front or the rear. In addition, rack bay extenders allow users to add depth to the front or back of an existing EGR Series rack. These extenders use existing doors, handles, and similar elements while adding three inches to the usable bay depth, and they can be stacked to achieve even greater depths.

Installers can choose from one-, two-, or three-bay rack sizes with a choice of styles and colors. The inner steel structure for the Credenza rack ships directly from a Middle Atlantic warehouse so integrators can start work immediately. The outer surfaces, doors, and trim are shipped separately to the installation site or shop.
Every model comes with pre-installed, thermostatically controlled cooling fans.
