Racks are now an integral element of many custom installations. Pre planning and standardisation can ensure every rack is given the time and attention required to result in a tidy, and serviceable solution.

This course will provide attendees with the clear, structural methodology required for rack building from planning through to future servicing. The course will explore the best practices, the importance of wiring choices and standardisations which can be applied to projects of all sizes.

Attendees can expect to gain a deeper understanding into the different types of racks, and how to apply the correct knowledge for overcoming issues with equipment placement, wiring, connectivity and rack build as a whole.

Topics covered include:

  • Rack elevations, kit spacing and ventilation. (best practices for loading and kit spacing including ventilation of racks)

  • Tails, rear panels and hardwiring.
  • Cable and signal paths.
  • Service loops and cable lay.
