    It will be holding CCTV, Network and 2 Servers, but then I will use cable management units between the switches and patch panels, so 600mm should be a safe enough size.

    I've used a few other cabinets in the past, and find that some aren't really 1m deep (I have some rack components that are 1m from front to back). My old prism cabinet ended up with bent rails from the old apc mounts (no rails). The hp ones are very tough. I have a similary priced Dell rack too, although that was part of an order.

    The first one I had is actually branded as Compaq, and came with new compaq servers - I liked it so much I got a second.

    The price difference to a prism is only around £200. Can they hold 900Kg?
    Ah I see, I didnt spot that the HPs were 1M deep, but here goes my closest match for you - http://www.millsltd.com/productDetai...artNo=X06-7117 its 1M deep

    prism cabinets. I think we paid £500 for 47u ones. Can be a mission to build from what i have been told
    Mission ? Thats not the half of it, never again. Wrong trays, NO instructions........Avoid.
    Give me an IBM cabinet any day.....Buit so many of those in my previous job I could do it with my eyes closed. Only snag is - VERY expensive.

    Just to add I have used and been very happy with:

    http://www.racksolutions.co.uk

    After the rubbish Prism sent us [ two sets of wrongly sized shelves ] I got 3 from rack solutions, simple to fit, very strong, very good [ pulll out ] - good price.

    Go for 800mm - provides much more room to work in / around. If your going to the cost of buying these reacks then you may as well buy something that is a bit bigger than you think you need?

    I'm hopefully ordering an RM 42u rack soon when budget allows - they look really good quality.
