Do you have any basic, inexpensive options?

In my own house, I have 3 things mounted flat to the wall:
- 96 port Cat5 patch panel
- 16 port PoE switch
- 16 port core switch

I'm looking to add another, smaller (24 port?) Cat6 patch panel and maybe mount my Cisco SG500 switch for my JAP distribution.

I found this 12U unit, but was wondering if anyone has any other options -- perhaps something in 16+ size.

Just to clarify; I'm not interested in typical swing rack due to unnecessary costs.
This is for my own house, in an equipment closet.
I'm in it a lot, swapping hardware, etc.

Sounds like something that a pair a rack rails and a 2x4 or 2 could handle.

Check out the Chattsworth swing racks... I've used them a number of times when I needed an open wall rack.

Fairly inexpensive and high quality:

Exactly. Don't be insulted -- that's pretty much what you're describing, though you might have to use several 2x4s.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

I'm not insulted.

But I need something that not only accepts patch panels which would be a simple rack rail and a 2x4, but I also need the depth for the network switch, thus something in the 12-14" depth.

Paul, not sure if I picked wrong sizes, but the least expensive one was north of $200.
If that's the case, I might as well stick with $160 unit I referenced in OP.

Make the "v's" out of 2x4s as well. Might need a foot to the floor for stability....

...Or attach eye-bolt to ceiling truss and string/wire support it that way.
