Custom Rackmount Cases

Rackmount cases are manufactured to accommodate the standards of the E. I. A. (Electronics Institute of America) and offer the convenience of devising a custom layout by mounting your equipment in a stacked position and operating it in the manner in which it was intended to be used. That is, allowing you to use your equipment while it remains inside the case, saving both space and valuable set-up time while continuing to protect your equipment during operation. With removable doors, your equipment is easily accessible from both the front and rear. Therefore, all you need to do is remove the doors, plug in the power, and you're ready to go.

Case Club has been manufacturing rackmount cases for over 20 years and is continually developing new technologies in order to manufacture the strongest, most protective case the audio visual industry, industrial engineers, and the entertainment industry demands.

What is the E.I.A.?
The E.I.A. (Electronics Institute of America) is an institute which has defined the universal standards for electronic equipment and their components, including the standards for rackmountable equipment. The institute has set the standards for electrical specifications such as color coding resisters according to number of ohms, as well as specifications which directly concern the case industry, such as spacing of rack units, width of rack units and the distance between mounting holes.

Remember:
We custom manufacture all of our cases, so we can manufacture your rack to your specific needs.

Double Cover Rack

Manufactured according to our Heavy-Duty (ATA Style) specifications, the Double Cover Rackmount case offers the convenience of the rackmount design and offers protections when transporting your equipment under your own supervision such as an automobile or company truck/van. When size, weight, and budget are of the most importance, this is the style for you.


EZ Shock Rack

Double Cover EZ Shock Rack

This case is manufactured according to our Heavy-Duty (ATA Style) specifications and is a hybrid between a standard double cover amp rack (described above) and the full Shockmount rack (described below). Rack rails are supported on motor mounted plastic side panels - offering protection when shipping your equipment through common carriers, though light enough to be carried around town. When size, weight, and budget are the most important, and you can't afford to sacrifice durability, the EZ Shock rackmount case is the style for you.

Double Cover Shockmount Rack

While the outer shell of this case is manufactured to our Heavy-Duty (ATA Style) specifications, this style of rackmount case contains an inner rack which is isolated from it's outer shell by a shock absorbing mechanism combining foam and rubber motor mounts. This case offers the convenience of the Double Cover Rackmount case while offering the protection of shipping your equipment under the more strenuous conditions of common carriers such as air freight and trucking companies.

Rack In A Case

When your shipping needs and formal presentations must work together, the rack in a lift-off lid case, a combination which allows you to completely remove the rack from the foam lined case and place it onto a table or other surface, offers the protection and versatility you need. This combination offers protection of shipping your equipment under the more strenuous conditions of common carriers, while allowing the inner rack to remain cosmetically clean and to be utilized in small presentation spaces once removed from the case.
Available options include casters, keylocks, rear rails, and table legs which are mounted into one or both of the lids to form a table.



A. Number of rack units
The E.I.A. has set the spacing of rack units at 1 space = 1 3/4"
B. Distance the rack rails are recessed into the center section of the case.
This is determined by whether the equipment to be mounted into the case contains handles, knobs, switches, cables, etc. along its front or rear panel, and whether you want these protrusions to be flush with the center section of the case, recessed inside the center section, or extend out from the center section and into the lid.
C. Depth of center section
Once you have determined the distance the rails will be recessed into the center section of the case, the depth of the center section is determined by the depth of the equipment to be mounted into the case and added to the recess of the front rails (and rear rails if applicable)
D&E. Lid depths
The lid depths are determined by the distance in which the protrusions of your equipment will extend into one or both sides of the lids, if any. The min lid depth is 2 1/4" (inside dimension) not including foam.
F. Number of handles and their placement
This will depend on the weight of your equipment and the size of the case. We recommend handles on the lids of larger cases.
G. Left to right dimensions if your equipment is not E.I.A. width
The E.I.A. has set the standard for rackmount width at 19" (18 5/16" from center hole to center hole). If your equipment is not standard E.I.A. width we can install shelves and then secure your equipment from moving with shock absorbing foam.
