Amazon 19" Rack Case

Amazon ruggedised racks combine the tough resilience of a rotomoulded case with an aluminium rack frame (an optional stainless steel frame is available) which is suspended by 8 (or 16 as an option) anti-vibration mounts.

Anti vibration racks are available from 4U to 14U and in four standard frame depths of 480mm, 610mm in all sizes with 740mm and 870mm in selected sizes. (Further sizes to follow).

Amazon 19-inch racks are designed to function in extreme conditions and survive rough handling in military or civilian applications.

Amazon 19-inch ruggedised racks comply with MIL-STD 810F and are rated IP65.

The optional EasyGlide™ system allows the inner frame to slide in and out of the rack body. This enables easy "on the bench" equipment population and "full all round" access for maintenance.

Amazon 19-inch racks offer enhanced ‘sway space’ between the inner frame and rack body to prevent collision under servere impact conditions.

Amazon racks are an approved product for government and MoD / DoD requirements.

Wheels (cases and racks)

Cases of 750mm in length and greater have provision for fitting optional 70mm ‘roller blade’ recessed wheels. Similarly all racks can be fitted with two optional recessed wheels, housed in the deeper 125mm lid. These robust wheels allow ease of handling with heavier loads and are designed to come into operation as the case or rack is tilted, but do not interfere with stacking or stowage (pat. pend.). Two additional handles are provided on the front lid of racks fitted with wheels.

Removable inner frame (racks)

Amazon provides a removable ‘Easy Glide’ inner frame option (pat. pend.) without loss of anti-vibration characteristics, to allow complete withdrawal of the 19 inch inner frame in constricted spaces or semipermanent installations. Simple and rapid withdrawal, by front access, without any special tools is achieved by removing 4 x M8 stainless security bolts and sliding the 19 inch frame, with all its contents in place, towards you. Once fully removed, the 19 inch frame contents can be fully accessed for maintenance or repair. To replace the frame simply reverse the process, slide the frame down 4 glide runners, which automatically ‘self-anchors’ the frame at the rear, and replace the 4 x M8 security bolts. The frame is then firmly secured within the glide runners in the outer container.
