What can I use a rack box for?
A 1U project box to be used with 19-inch rack mounts, perfect for prototyping projects. It may also be used as an instrument case purely for seating equipment inside for secure fitting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The quality is not good at all. Paint was missing where they had overtightened screws. The front panel was not anodised, it was just painted (badly). The bottom was not perforated as adverstised, and it was not a flat pack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unlike the previous version this enclosure no longer has handles or the useful matrix of holes in the base. The front panel appears to be painted rather than anodised and is easily damaged. The basic design is an improvement, but Maplin should be offering replacement panels and accessories for this range.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The quality of the U2 box is ok, good enough for most projects. The all black finish is attractive and professional. However, the base plate is not punched as advertised, so you will need to find other means to secure your PCBs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A basic non-professional quality box. Good solid front panel but, because the rest of the design is a bit flimsy, it wouldn't put up with much weight hanging off it. Perfectly suitable for prototyping purposes though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was delivered really quicklyand was well packed, the finish was fairly good, the only fault was that the self tapping screws supplied were overtightened in construction which meant that I had to apply upwards pressure on the cover to get the threads to bite when removing them.

Picture shows a brushed aluminium front panel but text says that it is black anodised. Can you confirm which is correct?
