What's the vertical mounting rail depth for the NetShelter SX cabinets?

Customers need to know the adjustable depths of the NetShelter mounting rails.

Product Line: 
NetShelter SX

All models and serial ranges.

Customers need to make sure that the NetShelter rails can be adjusted to fit their equipment.


Vertical mounting rails come factory installed on most NetShelter SX cabinets in the proper position for use with rack mountable equipment that has a depth of 29 in (737 mm).
Information regarding the exact positioning and adjustability for any specific cabinet is available on the APC website. Search for the cabinet sku, go to the Documentation tab, then open the Submittal Drawings.
All vertical rails can be adjusted back and forth in as little as .250 inch (6.35 mm) increments. Simply loosen the clamping brackets on each rail to reposition it.
A unique "captive" vertical rail design prevents the rail from dislodging during the adjustment process. Plus, visual alignment aides allow for quick vertical alignment of the rails.
The vertical mounting rails of the NetShelter are marked with numbered U-spaces on both the front and back.
