Does anyone know who carries a 2u blank and has a shelf attached to it? Looking to use in our racks to house power supplies, baluns, etc.

I do know that snap has a 1u but dont see a 2u version.

Thanks!

I've never seen a 2u from any of the manufactures.  I use the hidden shelves often and just add another 1u blank above them when needed.

Middle Atlantic UFA series: [Link: middleatlantic.com]

We use them all the time for this. They have two shelf depths and you can add the blank panel to the front of it. They make 1U thru 4U blank cover plates. Easy access from the front to the items on the shelf.

I just use a 2U or whatever size at the front and mount a shelf to the back rails.

I've used a short shelf mounted on the back where it doesn't interfere with anything else.

Velcro those pregnant snakes, and other junk out of the way.

have you used that with middle atlantic trim strips?  do the strips stick out too far for the latch to engage?
