A cabinet or rack's structure may be built to either be wall mounted only, floors standing only, or both.

We'll talk about the weaknesses and strengths of each design in this article, as well as what it means for various applications.

Wall mounted rack

A wall mounted rack, as the name implies, is installed mostly on wall. For smaller installations with space constraints, wall mounted rack is suitable.

The main benefit is that this could save room on the floor and work in places in which other rack might not.

Wall mounted racks are generally a good choice for equipment that is shorter to 800mm, not higher than 22u, and/or weighing or less 130 kg.

While most wall mounted racks are designed to match the typical 16-inch drywall shelf spacing, it's also necessary to review the rack in question and ensure that the configuration meets your specifications.

The kind of wallboard users have towards the design can influence whether you install your racks to either the wall with wallboard studs or wood screws.

Floor Standing Racks

Floor Standing Rack 

Floor standing racks, as the name implies, is intended to be used on floor. They are suitable for design that need a lot of space or need more features than wall mount rack can provide.

Floor standing rack have a heavier weight, the ability to provide deeper mount depths, including new features including casters for mobility when opposed to wall mount racks, and leveling feet.

Basic Configuration of Floor Standing Rack


Floor standing racks enclosures are usually fitted with ventilated front and rear doors to allow for front-to-back ventilation, and they're often installed without them.

Split rear door is common to minimize the amount of clearance needed to fully open them.

Front door may also be split, but it is less common. A Plexiglas windows could be mounted on the front side, but it will limit ventilation via the cabinets.


Panels on the sides

Side panels may be added or removed from floor-standing racks enclosures. The rack enclosure can be serviced more easily with modular door panels which are divided into two parts on either side.

The absence of vents on the side panel improves cooling performance. They keep you from getting too hot.


The majority of enclosures were black, yet white enclosure has become increasingly common. In wide installations, they improve visibility, reduce light levels, and energy savings.

 Floor Standing Racks

Collection of lock

Users can substitute the chipped locks on the rack’s enclosure door and side panel with suitable combination lock. 



Most floor standing racks enclosures do have flexible roof panel with many cable accesses slots. Remote cable controllers, such as cable railings and cable puddles, may have points of attachment on the roof.

Levelers and Casters

Casters are wheels attached to the rack's rim. Most floor standing enclosures come with casters, which enable you to move the cabinets a small distance while install.

In lieu of the casters, solid feet named levelers sustain the mass of a cabinet and machinery once it is in place.

On soft terrain, they often modify and balance the racks. Larger, more robust casters can be attached to racks to hold more weight as well as provide better flexibility.
