2-Post Rack, Relay rack and telecom rack terms used for the same basic rack. There are many variations to these products; ISC is using the terms 2-Post Rack and Relay Rack as the key phrase and telecom rack as the second. These type racks are normally used when the rack mount hardware only needs to be mounted to one set of rack rails. A common application for them is to mount patch panels, servers and UPS power devices. Some installations may require multiple isles and hundreds of racks to hold thousands of rackmount patch panels for the massive amount of communications of the company.
These type racks are also used to facilitate small servers, switches and other shallow depth hardware. as well. Traditionally, these have been made of aluminum and had tapped holes for 12/24 threads. Now there is a choice of aluminum or steel racks. While the aluminum racks are normally 12/24 threads many of the steel relay racks and telecom racks are tapped for 10/32 threads. Some of the other variations of these type racks are equal flange rack and unequal flange racks. These are normally welded and have a base that cable can run through.

4-Post racks are designed to be a cost effective solution for racking deep hardware that requires mounting the front and rear of the hardware to rack rails. There are two basic styles as follows: 1.

The hybrid is the most cost effective solution.
Wall Mount Cabinet / Open Frame
There are many applications for rack mount hardware that do not fit the typical 2-post rack or server rack cabinet solutions due to location and space requirements. Many times the best racking solutions are wall racks or cabinets. They are available many sizes to fit very tight spaces. They can be made to fit in awkward spaces in closets and can accommodate very small hardware to reasonably deep hardware. ISC offers selections for enclosed wall mount cabinets and open frame racks.
