The StarTech 4-post 2636CABINET comes with a lifetime warranty, a solid steel frame, and rear door. The unit comes pre-assembled on a crate with a package weight of 185.6 pounds. The bare unit weighs in at a solid 127 pounds. The unit moves well on the wheels, but the sturdy steel construction adds quite a bit of weight.



Included in Package




The cabinet comes with two keys for the front and rear doors. Each door requires its own key, allowing some restriction of access to the unit if desired. The unit also comes with screws with embedded plastic washers to protect the finish of installed equipment.


The rack holes are square to provide the widest possible compatibility. A generous helping of cage nuts are included.





Users often overlook a very important aspect when purchasing a new rack or cabinet. The availability of accessories with proven compatibility is very important. StarTech offers a plethora of accessories. Two available PDUs (Power Distribution Units) can provide either 8 or 16 power outlets to the rack. A Serial Control PDU, rated for 15 Amps, can also provide power control either remotely or with the local IP network. This is a particularly attractive solution for SMB and SOHO applications.


Extra fans, shelves, drawers, cable management panels, and fasteners provide plenty of additional options or replacements.
