Specially designed for satellite uplinks and other applications where 19-inch electronic equipment needs to be transported and deployed without damage.

This ultra light 19-inch rack case weighs just 8Kg for the 4U version and allows secure transportation of mobile electronics systems as checked baggage whilst providing high levels of protection from shock and vibration.


  • This novel design rack case is available in standard sizes of 3U, 4U and 5U versions with a 480 or 610mm deep, lightweight welded aluminium frame, which is fully compatible with UK or US 19-inch rack-mountable equipment.
  • The rack frame is supplied with stainless steel caged nuts for ease of securing equipment. Support shelves and equipment restraint systems are available as inexpensive options for additional fixing security.
  • The rack frame is suspended in a lightweight 10mm rigid honeycombed polypropylene (Astroboard) outer shell with angled elastomeric anti vibration mounts available in 2 shore hardnesses. These provide 40mm of “sway” space between the rack and outer shell and are available in various grades to give alternative suspension characteristics to suit different payloads.
  • The polypropylene shell is contained within a weatherproof, PU backed, nylon fabric outer bag complete with tamper proof, padlockable zipped panels allowing front and rear access. The outer bag can have an external label holder and several units can be stacked and secured with optional tensionable stack straps.
  • The zipped access panels are stiffened with puncture resistant polypropylene and the rear panel can be fitted with a cable storage pouch.
  • Standard sizes available.

SatRack represents a leap forward in 19 inch portable rack design that allows high levels of protection for the transportation of 19 inch equipment as checked airline luggage.
Honeycomb structure
SatRack’s honeycomb polypropylene (HPP) shell has a high strength-to-weight ratio and is resistant to crushing. The forming process does not crimp the HPP, but instead gives the angled edges longitudinal strength and rigidity.
The nylon outer cover is abrasion and weather resistant, and by using the very best fittings, the unique design, combined with an attention to detail provides the lightest, strongest, toughest rack system available.
Elastomeric suspension
The chassis is suspended by eight cylindrical elastomeric anti-vibration mounts that provide 40mm of ‘swayspace’ between the rack and body shell
Optional trollies and wheel kits are available as accessories as well as items such as support rails and shelves, protective skirts, labelling options and system cooling.
