OmniMount Adds the RE42, the Largest Enclosed Rack from the Company to Date
Posted on Friday, December 17, 2010

 Atlanta, GA – OmniMount, a pioneer in the design and manufacturing of unique A/V mounts and furniture for residential home entertainment and commercial applications, has added to its complete line of customizable and aggressively priced A/V rack solutions. OmniMount’s RE42 joins the brand new RE18 and RE27, the most recent additions to its growing portfolio of rack systems — the only fully assembled rack systems on the market to ship with cooling fans for equipment ventilation already pre-installed.

The RE42 is a 42-space rack made from heavy-gauge steel, features a standard 19-inch rack enclosure with lockable tempered-glass left- or right-hinged front door and side panels that keep components safely encased. The RE42, just like the smaller ones in the line, is designed with a caster base for easy movement and adjustable feet to level and stabilize the rack as a finishing touch. All three enclosed racks are designed to be effortless and cost-effective out-of-the-box solutions to audio/video installers on the go. The rack systems ship completely assembled, with pre-configured rack shelving that easily accommodates a wide range of audio and video products with immediate convenience, allowing for 16” or 20” deep of usable space. These racks also feature a fully installed cooling system with top and bottom ventilation and pre-installed top cooling fans to ensure that the equipment is properly cooled.
“We’ve had development of a 42-space rack in our sights for quite some time now — the market demands it for larger homes and places of business,” said Hal Truax, director of the commercial division for OmniMount. “This piece is designed primarily for those bigger jobs with more than five pieces of audio/video equipment — and while there are competitively-sized models out there, installers will be hard-pressed to find another one that ships fully assembled, with pre-installed cooling fans.”
The RE42 is a 42-space rack featuring seven 2U space shelves with 50 pounds (22.7 kg) maximum weight capacity per shelf, two 5U space shelves with 100 pounds (45.4 kg) maximum weight capacity per shelf and nine 2U space solid blanks. The rack is designed to handle exceptionally heavy loads, with a weight capacity of 1,100 pounds (500 kg). Designed and engineered in the USA, the RE42 is scheduled to ship in Q4 and will be offered at an aggressive MSRP of $1,199.95.
