METCASE has extended the number of customisation options available for its popular UNIMET 19” rack case range.

Customisation for UNIMET now includes a much wider range of painting and logo/legend printing options, in addition to milling – providing complete fully finished housings for components.

Enclosures can be painted in any desired colour combination. Textured finishes and wet paint processes are also available on demand with a minimum order quantity of just 10 to 25 units, depending on the colour.

METCASE’S stylish UNIMET 19” rack mount enclosures have been designed for applications including test and measurement devices, audio and video systems and networking and communications equipment.

UNIMET 19” cases are available in depths of 280 mm and 380 mm and in two standard heights: 2U rack case and 3U rack case.

UNIMET 19 inch rack enclosures are painted in a modern fine textured light grey, RAL 7035 and window grey, RAL 7040 colour combination. The attractive design and finish is suitable for equipment which is designed for both rack mounting and desktop applications.

Each UNIMET aluminium rack mount case consists of a diecast front bezel which locates on the fabricated case body.

The stylish front bezel incorporates the rack mounting ears and unique ergonomic ‘comfort handles’ for maximum comfort when carrying and loading into the rack. The base panel can be removed separately. It includes mounting points for PCBs, assemblies and accessory ABS tilt feet.

Anodised aluminium front panels are available as accessories and are located into a recess in the front bezel.

The front panels include two ABS trims which hide the fixing screws and allow for fitting of a membrane keypad or product label.

The removable rear panel is also recessed to provide protection for power inlets, connectors, on/off switches and fan grills.

Prices for UNIMET 19 inch enclosures start at £102.

METCASE is the aluminium enclosures division of OKW. Sales & Marketing Director Robert Cox said: “Customisation options have increased significantly in recent years with the advent of new technology.

“Minimum order quantities are low so more and more customers are choosing customised enclosures,” he added.
