Check the Weight Capacity of the Rack Enclosure Before You Buy

As you are looking at buying a new rack enclosure for the servers and support equipment you are putting together, you are going to be faced with a number of decisions and specifications to consider before you make your purchase. One spec that many technicians seem to forget more often than not is the weigh capacity of the rack they are buying.

It Is Better to Buy a Heavier Duty Rack Enclosure

If you are not sure how much weight you are planning to add to the new rack enclosure you are buying, you will find that it is far better to buy one that is rated for more weight than you think you are likely to ever add to it. This will eliminate the risk of overloading a rack that is not rated for the weight you have put in it and watching thousands of dollars’ worth of servers crash onto the floor and self-destruct.
