42U Server Rack Cabinets

42U is the most common rack height sold for data centers.  42U = 42 Rack Units on your Mounting Rails = 73.5" of rack mount space available.  Please note that actual internal and external height vary depending on the server cabinet manufacturer.  Depending on your application, requirements, and space limitations; a smaller, more specialized cabinet may be best for your needs.  Though it may be intuitive to think that a smaller rack would be less expensive because of less steel being used, server cabinets in the 42U height range are mass produced and therefore usually have far less production cost.

Which is the best 42U Rack for me?
Comparing racks can be a daunting task. Even comparing racks with similar dimensions can be like comparing apples to oranges. In addition to your dimension requirements, please also take into consideration the rack's cooling capabilities and cooling options, compatibility, load capacity, cable management options, rack accessories, rail mounting, and overall rack expandability. For additional help, please contact our expert sales engineers at 1-866-722-5776 or join us on Live Chat.

Being within a few rack units, you may also want to consider 40U & 44U Server Racks. Also worth noting are standard 48U Server Racks.

* For ease in comparison, depth and width are shown here with rounded external rack dimensions. To see the specific dimensions, please view the individual rack page.
