FAQs – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

What materials do you use?

All our cabinets are built using a range of wood finishes, including walnut, oak, sapele, maple and cherry. We can make all the racks in solid wood or veneer. Solid wood racks have a more natural finish, with a higher quality look and feel to them, but this is reflected in the price. The veneer racks are completed to the highest spec and undergo a similar process as the solid wood racks – the nature of the veneer makes it slightly easier to work with and is, therefore, less labour intense; reflecting the pricing point of the wood.

How long will delivery take?

How wide is a 19-inch rack?

A 19-inch rack is a recognised international standardised frame or enclosure for mounting multiple equipment modules. A ‘U’ or multiples of is the size adopted by manufacturers for outboard hardware equipment like compressors, noise gates, effects processors, cd players, amplifiers.  Each module has a front panel that is 19 inches (approx 483mm) wide, including edges or ears that protrude on each side which allows the module to be fastened to the rack frame with screws. The depth of the unit will vary. The standard size for 1u .is 19″ x 1.75″ /482.6mm x 44.4mm. If you add a door to a rack it becomes a cabinet.
