Middle Atlantic Introduces Forward Installation Products

Middle Atlantic has introduced Forward, a new installation system designed around a rackrail and universal mounting pattern that allows blank and vent panels, cable management, lighting and other options to be quickly installed without tools.

Middle Atlantic said the new system optimizes rackspace and saves time with toolless accessories. In a rack, space is finite, which is why the company transformed the traditional rackrail into a multipurpose configuration. Forward Rail features a new take on the conventional L-shaped design, providing two planes of mounting possibilities.

First, the front face of the rail features a square hole designed to engage with Forward blank and vent panels and horizontal cable management options by simply clicking into place without tools or hardware. In addition to this hardware-free functionality, the rail maintains the 10-32 tapped holes for rack screw mounting of equipment.

Second, the side of the rail is punched with the company's Universal Hole Pattern. This feature allows for vertical cable management from top to bottom or from one rack unit to another throughout the enclosure.

With today's AV equipment needs, a UPS is vital on every job. However, installing one can be a challenging, two-person job due to its size and weight. The Forward UPS Base eliminates this problem with a 2200VA Premium Series UPS that comes preinstalled and ready to plug in out of the box.
