metcase2011-03METCASE the metal enclosures division of OKW Enclosures, Inc. has signed an agreement with Spanish 19” racks manufacturer RETEX to market its extensive range of flat-pack 19” racks and cabinets.

METCASE, Vice President, Sales, Sean Bailey said: “We are very excited to be able to bring this extensive range to North America. We are confident that the unique RETEX ‘all-in-one-box’ flat-pack rack system will prove very popular with electronics, networking and server rack installation engineers”

The RETEX LOGIC² 19” flat-pack rack system is designed to meet the needs of many different industry sectors such as cabling and networking installations, IT and data center applications, broadcasting, entertainment and audio-visual markets as well as industrial computing and electronics.

The unique LOGIC² flat-pack rack kit is supplied complete with all parts in a single carton. The specially designed carton is tough, easy to store and transport. The carton is much easier to move on site especially in buildings with restricted access to stairways and elevators. Pre-assembled racks are far more difficult to install in such buildings without the risk of damage.

The LOGIC² rack system consists of an extruded aluminum frame and can be assembled on site in under five minutes. Just eight assembly bolts are required to complete assembly; panels and doors simply snap into place using special fast-action fixings.

These lightweight yet robust cabinets can accommodate static loads up to 2200lbs (1000kg), and dynamic loads up to 660lbs (300kg).

Standard configurations include 600mm and 800mm wide cabinets in six different heights from 18U to 47U, including the most popular 42U size. Three standard depths are offered: 600mm, 800mm and 1000mm. All racks are supplied with adjustable 19” panel mounts. The standard finish is graphite gray epoxy paint.

Door options include safety glass or mesh (front and rear) with both available in single or space saving double door formats. The cabinets can be supplied without doors if required.

Unique design features include front and rear doors with 190° opening angle and soft close operation, quick release side and vented top panels, and optional corner trims in five colors to match corporate ID, or color code different rack configurations.

All LOGIC² cabinets are manufactured from 100% recyclable materials.

A complete range of accessories is available including plinths and panels, modular fan units, cable management, 19” chassis trays, shelves, supports and rails, baying kits and PDUs.
