RE: OT: heavy rack support

Indeed; I have seen more than my fair share of totally bent rack-ears if
heavy gear is not rear-supported. In extreme cases, this can bust PCBs
that are attached to the front panels of some units. If this is not
possible, make sure the rack is full with the heaviest units at the
bottom. If the rack is strong enough the whole lot sandwiches together.

For those paying particularly close attention, 'sandwich' is the word
for today.

Yes you should be concerned!

There should be rear mounting brackets attatched to the heavier pieces,
not, contact your case Manufacturer for the supports.

Probably not much help, but hey, you get what you pay for!
