Marathon has introduced a new equipment rack cabinet specially designed to accommodate devices as deep as Xserve, Apple's rackmount server: "The new ships flat, yet assembles into an extremely strong and rigid unit. The frames, top cap and bottom cap are symmetrical and the entire unit uses only one size bolt for ease of assembly using a single 5mm Allen wrench (included)." The M-Rack accommodates equipment 30 inches deep and stands 40U tall and comes with heavy-weight anti-tip plates for all four sides. The $1,100 rack is constructed of heavy-gauge extruded aluminum with a silvery satin finish, and comes with four heavy-duty, low-profile, roller-bearing, full-swivel casters, each rated at 500 LBs. Leveling feet are also included for stationary installations.
