Mounting Cisco UCS Slide Rails in a Threaded Hole Rack

The slide rail kits for the Cisco UCS equipment are not compatible with threaded hole racks.  However, if you are in a situation where you have to use this type of rack, there is a solution. The solution is RackSolution”s Adapter Brackets.  These brackets will convert threaded hole racks to square hole racks allowing the use of the standard Cisco Slide Rails.

The adapter brackets also allow for the adjustment of the rack if the installation depth is outside of the range of the Cisco Slide Rails.  The minimum installation depth of the Cisco Slide Rails is 26 5/8″.  If for example your rack has an installation depth of 24″ then the Cisco Slide Rails are not going to fit into your rack.  By adding 2″ adapter brackets to the front and rear of your rack you will increase the installation depth from 24″ to 28″ which is well within the installation depth range of the Cisco Slide Rails.  The adapter brackets that work with the Cisco Slide Rails are available in an assortment of sizes ranging from 2″ to 3 1/2″.
