5 STEP GUIDE FOR EASY INSTALLATION OF AN IN-WALL SYSTEM
Installing an enclosure in-wall provides an enhanced appearance and occupies minimal space. The guidelines below show the basic
steps for preparing to install an in-wall rack. For specific millwork dimensions, consult the appropriate A&E Specification Sheet,
located at middleatlantic.com.
1. Cut rough opening one stud width from to in-wall stud
2. Cut interfering stud
✓ Refer to appropriate A&E
Spec for required rough-in
dimensions
✓ Ensure that rough-in opening
is cut square
✓ When cutting flush opening,
use one existing stud
✓ Remove interfering segment
of stud when needed
HOT TIP!
Frame outside of opening
with matching jamb,
casing or trim to cover
rough drywall edge. To ensure
proper opening size, take the
width of the jamb,
casing or trim into account.
Important Note:
Please consult with an architect
or engineer before beginning
to determine if the wall is load
bearing. Load bearing walls may
require specific bracing to ensure that
all work is structurally sound. Installer
is responsible for conformance
to local building standards.

4. Build platform
✓ Brace opening with a new
stud and supports connecting
the sides at the top and
bottom of the opening
✓ Ensure that studs are plumb
✓ Ensure that base is level
✓ Base must be built to hold
weight of fully-loaded rack,
and must be secured to
the floor

CABLE MANAGEMENT BEST PRACTICES
When care is given to the management and maintenance of cable entering the rack or enclosure system, the goals of providing customers with
a neat, organized and effective system are easily attained. Having a system that is simple and quick to service and upgrade will additionally
benefit both the installer and the customer. When care is given to planning the management of cable entering the rack or enclosure system
and maintaining it neatly throughout that system, the goal of providing the end-user with a neat, organized, effective and reliable system is easily
attained.
Methods of Bringing Cable Into Your Enclosure or Rack System
Cable Entry: From Above Through Top of Rack Middle Atlantic Products enclosures come standard with wide-open tops for large
cable bundles to enter the enclosures.
Standard enclosure with MW-10FT top option shown –
aluminum panel is removed to drop cable bundle into
enclosure. Top can be replaced after cabinet has been cabled
Standard enclosure with
wide-open top – cable is
dropped in from above.
Cable Entry: From Below Through Bottom of Rack
The bottoms of Middle Atlantic Products enclosures are
designed just as the tops with a wide-open set-up to accept
large cable bundles. There is 75 mm of space in the bottom of the enclosure before reaching the rackspace area to
allow for cable entry up into the enclosure. Each enclosure’s unique “upformed base” provides interior room for cable
management and coiling unused wire.
Dressing Your Cable Internally
Vertical Lacer Strips Vertical lacer strips are designed to mount to the rail brackets in all Middle Atlantic Products enclosures. Add as many
lacer strips as necessary in order to bring the maximum amount of cable into the enclosure, as well as keeping power &
signal separate. The vertical strips allow the installer to lace cable from the top to the bottom of the rack or vice-versa.
When to Use Hook and Loop Style Ties
Hook and loop style cable fasteners like the TW12 should be
used when installing cable that is sensitive to strain, when the
wrap is so tight that it affects the performance,of the cable or
when cable will be added to or removed from the bundle on a
regular basis. These cable management straps can be opened
and reused unlike wire ties.

Horizontal Lacer Bars Most of Middle Atlantic Products’ enclosures are furnished with a set
of rear rackrail that can be used to mount the lacer bars at any height
position. These lacer bars will address two common problems that
occur: cable strain relief and running cables from one side of the
rack to the other.
Middle Atlantic Products offers different style lacer bars for different applications.

THERMAL MANAGEMENT BEST PRACTICES
Maintaining the temperature inside racks and enclosures is critical to the proper functioning and survival of the circuits operating within.
Most studies have shown that for every 5.5oC rise over 29.5oC, digital equipment life is reduced by approximately 40%. It is essential to
ensure the heated air within the enclosure remains at a temperature of no more than 29.5oC to help protect the sensitive equipment mounted
within. There are two approaches to securing an adequate internal enclosure temperature for the successful operation of the components
enclosed: passive and active thermal management. Passive makes use of the ability of a properly configured system to ventilate through natural
convection. In certain cases, however, the use of fans to force air through an enclosure (active) is necessary to maintain the desired internal
temperature. Please refer to the nomograph located on the following page to determine whether your system will require passive or active
thermal management. In addition to the proper configuration of your rack system, room design is critically important to the success of rack
and enclosure thermal management. It is essential that not only does the equipment room have the ability to remove the heat generated by
the racks, but also that racks are placed strategically within the room to ensure no re-circulation of air occurs.
Thermal Technique: Passive Thermal Management
The passive approach to thermal management involves capitalizing on natural airflow. Adequate vent openings in the top and bottom portions
of an enclosure, as well as an unimpeded airflow, and placing hotter equipment lower in the rack will enhance the natural flow of air, as heat
naturally rises. There is a wrong and right way to approach passive thermal management:

Thermal Technique: Active Thermal Management
In many instances, equipment located within an enclosure will produce too much heat for passive thermal management (convection) to
properly ventilate the enclosure. In this event, the use of forced air (fans) is instrumental to maintaining the optimal 29.5oC temperature
recommended. Keys to the successful implementation of active thermal design include the use of top-mount fan(s) and no venting in the
upper 6 rackspaces, upper sides, upper front or upper rear door, to prevent short-circuiting of air at the top of the rack. There is a wrong
and right way to approach active thermal management:

The key to successful active thermal management is ensuring there are no open vents at the top of the rack. The laws of static pressure
dictate that fans will pull air from the easiest path (closest opening). This will create an undesirable recirculation of air, forming a stratification
zone if upper vents are not blocked.

How to Calculate Ventilation Required to Provide an Interior Rack Temperature of 29.5oC
To calculate total waste heat (column B):
1. Obtain total waste heat output by combining the
published waste heat BTU/Hr. of all amplifiers
in the rack.
2. Add up total measured amperage draw from all
other equipment and multiply by 800 (total
amperage x 800 = total BTU/Hr. @220v.)
3. Combine BTU/Hr. totals from steps 1 and 2 to
obtain total for all equipment. Mark total in
column B.

In addition to the proper configuration of the rack system, room design is critically important to the success of rack and enclosure thermal
management. It is essential that not only does the equipment room have the ability to remove the heat generated by the racks, but also that
racks are placed strategically within the room to ensure no-recirculation of air occurs.
The best start for thermal management is during the planning stages of
new construction, by coordinating with architectural plans, building
contractors HVAC plans and millwork specialists. However, regardless
of whether planning is for a new or retrofit installation, there are several
effective methods for thermal management that depend greatly on
where the residential electronics system is being installed.
A common residential installation features a visible rack face
when it is mounted in millwork or a cabinet
For a complete guide to thermal management and controlling the
temperature inside equipment racks, visit middleatlantic.com to
download the Thermal Management White Paper.
Consideration to a rack’s internal airflow is equally important to ensure effective thermal management. Simulations and real-world testing show
that moving air through a cabinet from bottom to top results in the lowest internal cabinet temperatures for equipment with front intakes.

A&E SPEC.
# 96-999 (LCD)
The Professional’s Choice for Mounting and Trimming Non-Rackmount Components
With the innovative RSH custom rackmounts, virtually any component can be
installed in a standard 483 mm enclosure without making any modifications.
Custom cut to provide a perfect opening for the face of the component that is
being mounted, each RSH unit provides a neatly-trimmed installation with a
perfect fit and no gaps. With accurate details on over 8,000 components in
our measured unit database, chances are we have the component needed on
file. Unit assembles easily in minutes and includes rear brackets to prevent the
mounted component from sliding back. A ventilated bottom promotes
cooling. Depending upon the needs of the installation, the units can be
ordered with a black textured finish (model RSH4S), a black brushed and
anodized finish (model RSH4A). Bottom depths are automatically provided
in 290 mm, 355 mm, 390 mm, 445 mm, or 520 mm styles. Custom
rackmounts will accept any component up to 480 mm wide (maximum width
of opening 450 mm). Individual fascias (less rack ears and shelf bottom) are
also available in a black textured finish (model SFACE), or a black brushed
and anodized finish (model AFACE).

GLOSSARY
Definition
A & E Spec:
An A & E Spec, or Architect’s and Engineer’s Specification Sheet, is a document that contains all of the information,
including dimensions, materials, and weight capacities, in the format needed when specifying products. Our Architect’s
and Engineer’s Specification Sheets are available on our website at middleatlantic.com, on our catalog CD, or in
printed form upon request.
Anodize:
A finishing process used on aluminum. This process, when used on our products, includes ‘brushing’ to give an
aesthetically-pleasing grained finish.
Bonding:
The permanent joining of metallic parts, likely to be energized, forming an electrically conductive path to a
grounded conductor.
E-coat:
An electroplating process that, when used on our rackrail, guarantees that the threads do not become clogged.
EIA Compliant:
EIA is the ‘Electronic Industries Alliance’. ‘EIA compliant’ states that the rack and accessories conform to the 310-D
standards regarding the rackrail, panel sizes, dimensions, etc.
Ganging:
When two or more racks are connected together, side-by-side. This is done in installations when multiple racks are
permanently installed, facilitating cabling between racks. Also referred to as a multi-bay installation.
Grounding:
The intentional connection of electrical equipment to a grounded conductor for safety.
Isolated Ground:
Type of ground that segregates the technical equipment ground from the local building safety ground, to reduce
electrical noise from entering audio/video equipment.
KD:
KD is short for knock-down, signifies a product ships flat-packed and unassembled.
KO:
KO is short for ‘Knockout’, and applies to the knockouts that have been provided in most of our racks for electrical
connections, and also for UHF/VHF antennas. One type of knockout consists of punched indentations in equipment
cabinets, which can be easily knocked out using a screwdriver or other similar tool to create one of two different sized
openings for running low-voltage cable, electrical conduit, connectors, etc. Another type of knockout is produced by a
laser and produces smooth edges that are friendly to cables and contractors.
Powder Coat:
Powder coat is an epoxy based finish that is applied electrostatically and then baked to cure the finish. Powder coating
is an environmentally friendly process that does not release any harsh chemicals into the water or air. Powder coat is
scratch-resistant and protects the materials from corrosion.
GLOSSARY
TERM
Rackspace
A rackspace is a 44 mm vertical increment based on EIA/TIA standards and is how all 19" wide rackmount components
(Rack unit, RU, space): are measured in terms of height. It is the only measure common to the metric and English systems. Applies also to
584 mm mounting widths.
RackTools®:
RackTools® is a free layout and specification software package produced by Middle Atlantic Products. Containing our
complete product line, RackTools™ is user-friendly and does not require any third party software to generate drawings,
purchase orders and quotes quickly and easily. Please visit racktools.com for more information and to download
your copy.
Stand-Alone:
Racks modules that are used alone, i.e. ERK Series stand-alone enclosures.
TIA Compliant:
TIA is the ‘Telecommunications Industry Association’. TIA compliant states that the rack and accessories conform to
standards regarding the rackrail, panel sizes, dimensions, etc.
Useable Depth:
On racks the useable depth is based on the maximum front to rear rail depth, with the exception of wall racks, where
the open space in the backpan is considered part of the useable depth. On a rackshelf, the useable depth is the
maximum depth of the component that can fit on the shelf.
