Can the ends of a NetShelter 2-post or 4-post rack be closed with panels?

Published date: 15 February 2019

Issue:
The customer wants to close off the ends of their open rack for a clean look. 

Product Line:
NetShelter 2-Post and 4-Post racks 

Environment:
All versions and serial ranges.

Cause:
The ends of the racks is open, and the equipment and cables are visible. 

Resolution:

For customers with 2-post or 4-post racks there is a way to close off the ends for a cleaner look. 
Adding Performance Cable Managers to the posts and using the blanking plates creates a solid black endplate. On a 4-post rack it creates the look of a cabinet, instead of an open rack. 
For additional information and part numbers please use this link to the NetShelter Cable Management brochure and see the section on Performance Cable Management, pages 19-22: https://www.apc.com/salestools/JCOS-7H4M68/JCOS-7H4M68_R9_EN.pdf 
Or, if the 4-post rack has not been purchased you can install a NetShelter SX cabinet that has side panels but no doors, like AR3100X610.
