RDS800 21U Rack Data Street Cabinet

A 21U Rack Cabinet designed to fit a fixed 19-inch rack made from stainless steel suitable for outdoor use. The RDS800 is a single door cabinet designed to an 800mm width, to accommodate most typical rack-mounted electrical equipment.

As standard, the cabinet comes with a three-point locking mechanism for added security. The locking mechanism is operated by an L-handle locked using a padlock with a padlock shroud for further security. Includes louvre vents on the side of the doors to allow for adequate cabinet ventilation.

As well as the standalone cabinet (with backboard and three-point locking mechanism, padlock handle and shroud as standard) we can offer accessories such as a light, a heater and thermostat or fans for optimal temperature control, including the necessary consumer unit required to power these items inside the cabinet. We can also accommodate modifications to the cabinet, such as the removal of vents, however, this will affect the cost and lead times. Please discuss any modifications that may be a requirement with our team.

Made for Rack Mounted Equipment

Rack Cabinet with a fixed 19-inch rack that accommodates 21U rack space for equipment.

The 800mm width is especially apt for rack-mounted equipment.


A 12mm thick exterior grade plywood backboard fitted as standard.

Ventilation and Cooling

Ventilation is via two louvred panels at the sides of the doors. We can modify the rack cabinet to remove the vents if desired, however, this will affect lead times. Please enquire further if this, or any other modification, is a requirement.

Option to add ventilation fans available. Please discuss these options further with our team.

Lock Options

Each rack cabinet door is secured with a three-point locking mechanism, with an L-handle secured with a padlock and protected by a padlock shroud as standard.

We believe this standard lock option provides the right level of security for the cabinet and the equipment inside. If you should require a different lock option, we will be happy to discuss however please bear in mind this will imply a modification to the cabinet (there will be changes in the metalwork) that could increase costs and lead times.

Recommend Installation

The 21U rack cabinet comes with an optional plinth. Using the optional plinth makes for a neater and easier installation compared to a traditional concrete base or plinth.

We recommend sealing the bottom of the RDS800 cabinet to keep moisture and condensation at bay. Please see our detailed instructions for sealing the cabinet.
