Let's start from the top and then work our way down. The first feature of pot racks I will present to you will be Type of Pot Rack. There are 4 basic types of pot racks. These 4 types of pot racks are Hanging Pot Racks, Wall Mounted Pot Racks, Lighted Pot Racks and Standing Pot Racks. I will go over each of these types of pot racks for you.

1. Select An Appropriately-Sized RackSelect a server rack with sufficient internal space to house your current equipment and ensure that you have ample space to accommodate planned future expansion as well as any unplanned equipment purchases. Rackmount equipment is measured in the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) standard "Rack Units" or Rack "U". One "Rack Unit" is equal to 1.75" in height. Keep in mind that space for accessories, such as environmental monitoring devices, remote power management devices, rack mount LCD monitors, and battery back-up, may be necessary. For example, if you need to accommodate 20 2U servers, you would likely want to choose a rack with a height of 44U to accommodate accessories such as a 1U patch panel, as well as a 2U UPS back-up battery. A rack’s internal height is measured from the tallest point of any side rail to the bottom chassis; internal depth is measured from the insides of both front and rear doors; and internal width is measured from one side panel to the other. Be sure that the rack’s external dimensions can be accommodated in the floor space allotted for it, check that it can be safely moved through all doorways, and ensure that its placement meets any relevant clearance or safety regulations. As a note, always use appropriate rack-loading techniques, including placing heavy items at the bottom of the rack to prevent a rack from becoming too top-heavy, have a plan about what you want to put toward the front and back of the rack (based on how much you will need to access or remove equipment), and have someone help load equipment that is heavy and/or above the height of your head.

This one is just as important to consider. If you don't have proper weight capacity for your equipment (ie: frame strength) then you could damage your gear, bend the rack frame or shelving, or if you try to push it to the limits you may not like what you hear later on down the road if it starts to sound rickety as wear from an overweight equipment load occurs over time. All of Middle Atlantic's racks are highly engineered to have appropriate weight capacity ratings. Their Slim 5 series rack is rated for 400 lbs, and it does hold 400 lbs with perfect ease. Up to this point the rack will function as described and will stand up to the test of time. If you swap out some components down the road, replacing some with heavier ones, add another here or there and now you've got 500 lbs, well that might not go so well. Time to buy a whole new rack to accommodate your updated system.

If you don't plan on taking down your ladder rack once it has been installed, a permanent installation will be ideal for you. Permanent installations are more secure, and may offer greater load bearing capacity and reliability than temporary or quick installation racks. However, they also require drilling and therefore may need to be professionally installed, which generates more expense. Additionally, drilling holes for installation cuts through the truck's painted finish and exposes the metal underneath, making the bed susceptible to rust.
